Found at the Leslieville Flea - the stories continue!

Following up on our first market, we asked people who visited what they Found at The Leslieville Flea.
Elizabeth, a Leslieville resident shared her find with us:
Elizabeth says "I was absolutely thrilled to find this zippered pouch at the first Leslieville Flea.  It's made by Tatiana Kozlov Design and as soon as I saw it I knew I had to have it!  Function + eye candy - in one complete package! Tatiana was also a gracious salesperson and put the pouch on hold while I ran off to the bank machine."

We love to hear stories like this....because that is what the Leslieville Flea is all about...finding that special piece that talks to you, while enjoying a great day in the community meeting artists and craftspeople, designers and collectors.  Finding something one-of-a-kind and beautifully functional.

Every item at the Leslieville Flea has a unique story and history....we'd love to hear yours!
