Hooked on Flea Market Style

by hookedonhouses on August 20, 2009


Welcome to Hooked on Fridays, a blog party I host at the end of each week to celebrate the things that make us happy. This week I’m excited about a new magazine hitting the stands early next year called Flea Market Style. It promises to be filled with vintage-style decorating, projects, collecting tips and more. It’ll be co-edited by style expert and author Matthew Mead and “The Martha Stewart of Junk,” Ki Nassauer.


Another reason I’m so excited: Linda MacDonald, who writes the popular blog Restyled Home, is the Editor-at-Large. Congratulations, Linda! She was one of the first bloggers who really reached out and befriended me when I started my blog, and I’m thrilled for her.


Linda has a new behind-the-scenes blog about the magazine where you can follow along as they put it together: Flea Market Style: The Making of a Magazine. I can’t wait to see how it turns out!

Speaking of accomplished bloggers–this is Melissa’s 2nd year blogoversary over at The Inspired Room. Be sure to stop by her Beautiful Life party today and wish her a happy one!


Now it’s your turn to tell us what you’re hooked on today! If you have something to share with us on your blog, then add your link below. Just please be sure to:

  1. Add the permalink to the specific blog post, not your general blog address.
  2. Include what you’re hooked on in parentheses after your blog name. Ex: The Red Cottage (antiques)
  3. Link back to the party from your post so that your readers can come and see what everyone else is talking about today!
  4. Visit as many of the other participants as possible and leave comments! That’s what a blog party is all about!
  5. Double-check to make sure your link works and goes to the right page so it doesn’t get deleted! If you come back and see your link is gone, re-read these rules and try again.

Arleen @ Seasons for All at Home August 20, 2009 at 8:48 pm

Hi Julia. There was a time when I rounded through flea markets nearly every Saturday. I used to love the quaint look of new treasures and still do, but I haven’t been to a flea market for years. Thanks so much for this reminder of the charm of flea market style. ~Arleen

I’m totally excited about a new magazine on the market! So many great ones have been folding…sadly!

Suzy August 20, 2009 at 9:05 pm

I love a good flea market……not any good ones in my area. I’ll have to stick to my dump finds, which are usually the best….because they’re FREE!
Thanks for sharing the find. I am adding their sites to favorites.

Terry Kearns August 20, 2009 at 9:15 pm

I am probably not the worst Flea Market shopper on earth. But I’ve learned to enjoy by treating them as little hands-on museums. And some aren’t so little. It’s great to know there will be a new magazine.

Very exciting. I love Matthew Meade. I’m headed to Brimfield (huge Flea market in MA) in Sept. This will be my first time there. Since it is so close, it makes it easy to go. I use to hit the DC Big Flea when I was in VA. Loving the “Making the Magazine” blog idea (genius) and look forward to following. Yeah for a new Mag!

MissCaron August 20, 2009 at 10:47 pm

I’m loving the idea of that magazine. I absolutely suck at finding old things and envisioning them as redesigned new things … sooooo not creative in that way at all. But I love seeing other people do it! Thanks for sharing!

This is good timing… I just did a blog post on Ki’s old partner, Sue Whitney, for Junkmarket Style and the couple books they published together. Check out my current post on that and I also have a giveaway of Sue’s latest book. It sounds like they are both doing well.

Janmary, N Ireland August 21, 2009 at 4:30 am

I love the sound of this magazine.

I just need to find more flea markets to rummage through. Here it is mostly car boot sales, and usually very little vintage, mostly broken tat you would not even give to a charity shop!

I love flea markets and this new magazine looks like a great source of inspiration. When I started blogging I really appreciated the kind bloggers that helped and encouraged me in those early days.
