We could not pull the store together without these five women! From the minute they arrived, they rolled up their sleeves and rocked any task we’ve thrown their way (and we’ve thrown them some real random, dirty, not fun stuff y’all).
From schlepping furniture, planting flowers, sweeping the floor and painting tables to assembling tags and tagging thousands of products, they’ve crushed their roles with smiles on their faces and not a single complaint.
You are in for a treat when you shop our store and meet these five in the flesh. They’re kind, work their tails off and have style and grace that blows us away daily.

Favorite food: It’s a cross between my grandmother’s Gallo Pinto (Nicaraguan bean and rice dish), pizza, and pancakes. So… the Gallpizzcake??
Currently watching: The Crown — and always re-watching New Girl.
Go-to cocktail: A mojito in the summer and Hot Toddy come winter.
What would we find you doing on a day off? Either in a coffee shop or in my tiny home studio watercoloring, writing a witty email to a friend, abusing coffee, daydreaming and/or Pinterest-ing.
What are you most excited about working at Flea Style? Everything! The team is amazing and gets. it. done. The wares are so inspiring and beautiful. If anything, I’m most excited about learning about the artisans and community that make a living off of doing things they love, and about the business side of pulling something so incredible like this together.

Go-to cocktail: Spicy margarita (with sparkling rose a close second)
What would we find you doing on a day off? My day always starts with me fighting the urge to hit the snooze button a couple times. Once I’m finally up I have to get a cup of coffee. Then it’s time to hit the gym and take my dog on a long walk around the Farmer’s Market. Most of my afternoon is usually filled with responding to emails, shooting new content and creating posts for my blog, TheDailyGlance.com. When things have wrapped up for the day, it’s time to relax with my husband. You’ll find us either cooking at home or grabbing a bite at our favorite restaurant El Bolero.
What are you most excited about working at Flea Style? Man, that’s a hard one because there’s so much I’m excited about! One of the first things that comes to mind is the people. I love that I not only get to work with some amazing ladies, but also get to interact and meet so many new people in the DFW area who visit the store! And obviously being surrounded by amazing vintage/handmade goodies isn’t too bad either.

Favorite food: All breakfast foods but specifically French toast
Currently watching: Peaky Blinders
Favorite cocktail: I’m not 21 for another three months so I’ve obviously never had an alcohol. But, if I had, I’d say a Moscow mule.
What would we find you doing on a day off? Most likely you’d find me in the climbing gym or cuddling with my pup, Ziggy!
What are you most excited about working at Flea Style? I’ve been following along/obsessed with Flea Style for a while now. Having the opportunity to see all the work and be a part of the magic on the back end is so rad.
