Countdown to the next Mermaid's Mercantile.... 20 days!

Our next Flea market is May 23rd!  One week early this time because of Memorial Day. click the flyer above to see all the details.
 This one is going to be over the top! Lots and lots of vintage treasures and handmade beauty!  This month our theme is Vintage Carnival, think Coney Island in 1950!
We have some magnificent giveaways and events planned all day long! Check the blog every day because I will be posting a new give away  right up to our event! Thats 10 fabulous giveaway's in 20 days! BUT.. I am not going to say which days will be give-away-days!  you will need to come on over to our blog and take a looksie.
 All month long I will feature a new Mermaid Mercantile vendor, you will get the lowdown on what they create and who they are and we will give you a sneek peak at some of the goods that will be for sale on May 23rd.

Our first featured artist is the ultra super talented Lisa Loria of http://vintagebling4u.blogspot.com/ I first met Lisa last August, she came into my shop, I was at an estate sale, my Mom was running the store and struck up a conversation with Lisa and invited her to sell her jewelry at The Mermaid's Mercantile.
 Lisa came to our next show and set up her candy store of mouth watering jewels and dreamy belt buckles all made from vintage components. I looked at her table and I was speachless... kinda like when you see a cute boy and you just stand there stammering and looking silly because you are soo enamoured... well that's how it was, I wanted to own all of that jewelry and all I could do was look at her and say, "I love you."
she laughed and we pretty much became instant friends (aka crackheads) we both work like maniacs, creating and selling our art and Lisa will call me up and say, "what cha doin crackhead?"
and we are... addicted to vintage art.
Lisa's talents go far beyond jewelry making, this woman can do anything, altered art, mosaics , sewing but her magnificence lies in her painting (see her blog). Her work is dreamy whimsical heaven and you never know what she will design next..... seriously she has a whole new trunk of treasures every month.
For Lisa's giveaway, she is offering one of her newest creations, a tiny fairy dancing under a smiling moon. A miniature diorama encased in resin dangling from an aqua blue beaded chain (pictured above)
 To win this beautiful piece you must leave a comment here and then go to Lisa's blog and leave her a comment too.
Lisa will pick the lucky winner. Here is the catch the winner will be posted at our next Mermaid's Mercantile, you must be present or have someone representing you there to check in for you to claim your prize.  For all of you out of state fans call a friend in the area and send them to the mercantile.
If the winner does not check in the giveaway will go to the next person on the list. Good luck!
remember to stay tuned there are lots more giveaways and fun details coming up!
Sincerely,
Debi
