The day dawned bright, early and chilly at the Three Speckled Hens flea market event Saturday! The JB team was already fortified with rhubarb scones, Polish yam bread and fresh oranges foraged from the farmers market across the street from the Paso Robles Inn.
And we were rarin’ to check out the 89 vendors in their 5th year of shows!

We pulled in to the parking lot an hour early, but we couldn’t enter until Ki had put on her“hostess gift” from vendor wrangler Jane:

a pair of festive, lace-less tennis shoes procured from Whimsy the day before on the way to Paso!

One of the Hens, junker Susi, was busy beautifying the booth where Ki would sign the spring/summer issue of Flea Market Style mags!

Just as we started to stroll the grounds, Ki espied these cool flannel shirts from Platanitis!

Ki had to ask Garrett all about them…

… and purchase one, of course!

She loved the great tent area the Hens had styled for the signing!

Color and texture were everywhere! Check out these cool arrows, in a tin-can quiver!

Industrial lovers found plenty to adore!

Junk with a French flair!

I coveted Susi’s cool cowboy boots!

At the end of the day, the Hens know how to throw a party! There was a rockin’ barbecue and Marga party for the vendors and guests!

The temperature continued to drop! Jane showed off her five-layer approach to high fashion!

The most warmth was emanating from the hostesses, however! Their ultra-wattage smiles kept
everyone happy! Here are Kathy, Susi and Carrie with a trophy presented to them the first night of the flea!

(Yes, it says Three Way!)
But these gals are triple-strength flea marketers, who don’t do anything by halves!
Thank you, fabulous Hens, for a wonderful visit to your show!
We can’t wait until you’re in our town in September!
