K'ville Indie Flea

On Saturday, the girls and I went to the K'ville Indie Flea at 134 North Cherry Street in Kernersville, NC.  This is located in the Time Warner Cable parking lot in downtown Kernersville.  Vendors set up every Saturday April-October from 8am-2pm.  When we went, there were five vendors, and I was happy to see that several of them are etsy shop owners!

First stop at the Flea was  Bee Gracious.    What craftmanship, what woodworking, what color, oh my!  These beautiful woodworked masterpieces are the creation of Darrell and Frankie of Hamptonville, NC.  I just love the birdhouses and bird feeders, and I especially love their butterfly houses!
The vendor next to Bee Gracious was jewelry designer Jessica Allen, with Nailed at the Cross.   Her husband, Bradley, was manning the booth when we were there. They make beautiful necklaces, handcrafted with real nails and wire.  Each one was a little different, with various beads intertwined and an assortment of colored wire.  Jessica has a large selection of beautiful cross necklaces, and if you can't make it to the K'ville Indie Flea, she can email you photos of the different styles and colors available. 
Fit To Be Dyed  was next, and their shop features upcycled high end, new and gently used articles with original colors and design.  They have added fabulous color to more than just tee-shirts!  There are beautiful strapless dresses, button down shirts, baby onesies and toddler outfits, too!  Fit To Be Dyed is also committed to donating 20% of their profits to deserving organizations, such as Leslie's House homeless woman's shelter and the Brenner Children's Hospital.

Marla Kurzec of MAK Designs creates one-of-a-kind artisan jewelry that is uniquely and painstakingly wire wrapped.  Her jewelry is extremely intricate and very, very beautiful.   Marla uses semiprecious stones, sterling silver, estate/vintage/antique beads, crystal, copper, brass and glass.   She also created this glass mosaic gazing ball, which is fantastic beyond belief. 
Last but not least is Chris Federico, founder of the K'ville Indie Flea.  She has a lovely space filled with vintage jewelry, glass and home decor.                                                                       
 We did arrive after 1pm... my apologies to the vendor that was packing up as we got there.

The participating vendors vary from week to week.  More the reason to stop by every Saturday!  You never know who or what you may find at the K'ville Indie Flea.  I'm planning to vend there myself in September and October... I'll keep you posted as to the dates I'll be there!
