Winter Fleamarketing

Shadow Box

 Last Saturday was wicked fun. I went indoor fleamarketing with my husband, Russ, my sister, Chris and her husband, Tom . Chris and I had both purchased the new Tim Holtz shadow box that you see pictured here. We were looking for unique items to fit the small boxes. It's going to take some time to do this, so we are starting early. Tom checked out two places; one in Westbrook and one in Scarborough. The one in Scarborough called "Clives", I think, was fabulous. The pictures below only show a portion of the store. We plan on going back for items we weren't sure would fit into the little boxes. We plan on measuring them this time. We stopped for lunch at the Rock 'n Roll diner there in Scarborough. What a great place to eat. It's decor in from the 50's. It was the end to a perfect day.

Love the musical intstruments
Miles of storage

 Once I am done with the shadow box, who knows when, I plan on posting pictures to my blog. I am thinking it's going to take awhile to do this. Anyway, it will be fun to be on the lookout for little finds.
Not in my house!
Great looking bear.
Oooh.. jewelry
Where would I put it?
The Fifties
Tim Holtz has some newer shadow boxes that are flatter. Once I finish this one I may check out his newer one. Thanks for looking! 


  1. I love the pictures you took of the indoor flea market! It was a fabulous place! Lot's of cool stuff! I can't wait to go back!

  2. I'm wondering if your mother has something very small you could put in your shawdow box from years gone by that would give it a family connection.??
