Three French Hens French Flea Market, Morris IL

In their last issue, Romantic Homes Magazine listed the French Market in Morris, IL as one of the top ten most romantic open air markets in the country.  Today, we had the opportunity to go to the monthly flea.  The vendors staged their wares in true artisan form all along the I & M Canal Corridor.  While coffees and cakes satisfied some of the senses,  the visual  stimulation was provided by a variety of folks selling their wares.  In this post I will be featuring six artists and shopkeepers (in no particular order), and I will keep my words few so you can enjoy the flea as well.  The contact information for the vendors is also provided.

Love the photos and it makes me wish I was in IL!
Thank you for stopping by the Design Challenge and sharing your ideas on my porch. Love the mantle idea AND the pop of red. Hoping to post a "reveal" in a couple of weeks. I really appreciate your ideas.
