Feast Your Eyes

Brooke LaValley and Perrie Wilkof are two lovely ladies you can find peddling their wares this Sunday at Summer Flea. And it’s a tasty booth share, to be sure. See below for a peek at the goods!

Photographer Brooke LaValley is a local gem. Her clever eye captures an element of beauty and character that brings you into her experience as a photojournalist with the Columbus Dispatch. We are so happy that she’ll be at Summer Flea with a selection of her favorite prints for sale!

This Guy! Flea-Jay George Brazil

George Brazil

We asked our beloved purveyor of flea jams to share a handful of his favorites. Here’s a taste of what you can expect from this weekend’s (so silky) Summer Flea soundtrack <3

1. Boogie To The Top-Idris Muhammad

“This jam has so much energy! It’s typically the song I always kick off the day to because it’s BPM is perfect for getting the blood pumping and senses awakened. It’s also a slow burner that kind of takes people by surprise, and before you realize it, you’re bobbing your head and probably dancing in someone’s vintage cat painting booth.”

2. Misdemeanor-Fosters Sylver

“One of my favorite “FleaJays” is Raymond T. Vinyl. He dropped this track and I instantly recognized it from it’s having been sampled in some old school hip hop tracks. I immediately started looking for my own copy (which, I found on 7” in Louisville, KY at Matt Anthony’s Record Shop.)”

 3. Thought It Was You-Herbie Hancock

“Another track that kind of builds up and puts you in an awesome mood. I love the fact that it’s long, too, for those moments you need a refreshing beverage or a corndog or something.”

 4. Do I Do-Stevie Wonder

“This feel-good party jam makes me sooo happy. The horns, the grooving percussion, Stevie’s playful vocals. I think it makes for good energetic vibes at outdoor events such as Flea (regardless of season.)”

 **Side note: “Another track that kinda fits in here would be “Kyrie” by Mr. Mister, in which I always imagine my friend back home “Big Mike” Mitschele performing at karaoke this one time.”

 5.The Sweetest Taboo-Sade

“This list wouldn’t be complete (a cliché, I know) without Sade (go ahead and say “Shar-day”…it’s cool as long as the ‘r’ is barely silent.) I think all of the djs that spin almost ALWAYS have at least one Sade record in their crate. This particular song was also made to blast at outdoor events, kinda like Do I Do, but it’s a little more #silky.”

Come on out to Summer Flea this weekend and let the turntable stylings of George Brazil (and friends!) guide you through a day of awesome shopping!

Nailed It: Willow and Wren at Summer Flea!

The nail polish junkies among us know that we too rarely consider what goes into our manicure materials. Formaldehyde. Toluene. Dibutyl Phthalate. These ingredients are bad for you, hard to pronounce, and for many brands out there, tested on animals. Not awesome. Enter Willow and Wren: A line of non-toxic nail lacquers that are locally made, eco-friendly, and cruelty-free!

nailCome see their wide variety of hot summer hues (all of the non-toxic variety) at Summer Flea on Sunday, August 3rd at Seventh Son Brewing.
