[A.K.A. Where my (Molly Block) art work & creative-reuse work can be found in person in the coming months, in addition to being found online on Etsy in the Molly Block Finds shop here, & on Facebook here.]
Sat., March 21, and maybe Sat., April 11 — Rice Village Flea in Houston — I had such a great time in February as a first-time vendor at the Rice Village Flea that I’m signing up for future RVF markets, where I’ll be selling prints of my photos and pieces of my upcycled vintage-film jewelry. The mix of local artisans/makers who participate in the RVF varies a bit from month to month, so it’ll be fun to see who’s here in March and beyond!
Sunday, March 29 — The Austin Flea, at the HighBall, 1120 S. Lamar, in Austin — I’m psyched about being a first-time vendor at the Austin Flea, a curated, indoor-and-outdoor market that’s been in existence since 2009. My table will be inside (yeah!). All sorts of good stuff, mainly local, handmade, and/or vintage things, can be found here. Unframed and framed prints, including some canvas wraps, like this one, of my vintage neon sign photos, including the one above that is now gone from Austin, will be available.

Friday & Saturday, May 8-9 — Vintage Market Days in McKinney, Texas — A variety of vintage-y things, including some antiques, furnishings, decorative items, and wearable objects — plus good things to eat, can be found at this indoor market, which is held over 2-3 days in various cities. McKinney in May will be my first Vintage Market Days market! (My photos and vintage film jewelry will be for sale.) 80+ vendors. Check out the VMD info for McKinney and other cities throughout Texas and in Oklahoma:
Saturday & Sunday, June 13-14 — Pop Shop Houston’s annual Summer Festival, at Silver Street Studios, 2000 Edwards Street, in Houston — Pop Shop Houston’s Holiday Market last November was my first market, and I had I so much fun that I’m still marketing-going! Seriously, this two-day indoor market will have everything from clothing, jewelry, furniture, food, home decor, and art items — including framed and unframed prints of my photos, plus pieces of my upcycled film jewelry — to items for children and pets, and more, at the 90 or so booths here.

Psyched to say that a bunch of my ready-to-hang prints will be hanging in the Dining/Event Hall at Night Bird Ranch — a fab event center and B&B in Ledbetter, Texas. (Near the towns of Round Top, Warrenton, Giddings, Brenham; a little over an hour away from Houston and Austin.) A batch of my ready-to-be-framed prints will be for sale here, too. All thanks to owner Kiki Teague. [Thank you!]

P.S. My house is *still* outfitted with a sophisticated security system that includes security cameras and other motion-detection gear and alarms, plus a strong man who’s very adept at using guns, in addition to a large, loud, easily angered dog, plus very watchful neighbors who keep an eye on everything happening nearby. So burglars: Stay away!
