City Fleas is a way for me to share my finds with you. Many may be from homes and businesses in small towns, but I am attracted to items that have a cool, big city vibe. I only offer items that I truly love. Please enjoy the adventure with me as we explore fun, function and frivolous!

Please feel free to communicate with me! I am a true people person and would like to make the transactions more personal than an online business often affords! Don't hesitate to convo me with questions or comments... they are welcomed! Thanks for looking!

I'd love for you to visit my two other shops:
