On Etsy since 2013

Harper's Flea LLC

While most kids where out doing "kid" activities, I spent a lot of childhood at antique auctions with my grandmother. She ran her own antique business for many years, mainly focusing on furniture, refurbishing pieces, and selling wholesale. I guess you could say it's genetics or maybe I just got the bug...aka flea bite...years ago. :-)

For the past 6 years I had been working in Dallas, TX designing women's & young men's apparel for a large mass market retailer. I recently married and moved to Knoxville, TN with my husband and 3 dogs. Since fashion design isn't a big business here in TN, (and freelance is far and few between) I can finally focus time on my other passions: Traveling, Vintage, Antiques, Upcycling, & Crafts!

I love authenticity and uniqueness! My goal for Harper's Flea is to find the best quality vintage and/or antique items that represent the so called "sign of the times." Items that have a story, history, and quality design or make.

My goal is to network with other Etsy members to learn more about vintage & antique pieces and to help spread the vintage & antique bug through Harper's Flea. :-)

    Hello Etsy Friends! I am a fashion designer by trade, but would describe myself as having ADD for design....LOVE IT ALL! Right now my focus is treasure hunting for authentic design in vintage & antique pieces...with a little upcycling in between!
