Urban Barn Flea Market

The current issue of Romantic Homes Magazine showcases the Editors’ “Top Ten Flea Markets” in the U.S.  Making the cut, the Urban Barn permanent and once-monthly Flea Market aka Street Faire, in North San Diego.  Kerry went to the Faire the last two days, and I thought you’d like to see a little bit of what she saw, through her lens~

I’d be happy to flop down in this comfy bed with a book and a pot of tea, wouldn’t you~


The drapery above reminds me of tattered ship’s sails, or a laundress gone mad~


I love the grain sack pillows with bright tulle skirts, against the faded red leather chair~


We joined the riot of color with baskets, colored and natural Metis linens and a few bits and bobs~


Many natural influences; love these burlap pouches in the wood caddy~


I laughed when Kerry texted to ask if I wanted these….she did not know I had just purchased an item I had monogrammed for myself….talk about an XXL mono…aren’t these fun, if they are your initials?~


Many of my friends go to the Barn on a regular basis, it’s an escape in some ways; I love the whimsy, I love the creativity of the mattress springs overhead and the collection of objects, including any reference to Paris!~


You can find the Urban Barn blog HERE.  Women from Orange County go by the busload to visit, and now I know why~ 


Special thanks to Kerry for the photos, while I was at the Corona del Mar market!


  1. I'll have to remember this flea market next time I'm down that way. Is it open the third weekend of the month?

  2. So this is something that was a flea market and now is a full time store of sorts? Looks like a great place. Have to visit on my next trip out. I must say "laundress gone mad" made me laugh :)
