Fleaology Dealers Extraordinaire!

Just for fun I decided to take pictures of my dealers, just so I can look back on them later.  Unfortunately I managed to miss several of them, but here are those I caught this time 
This is Lizzy, she started doing flea.o.logy the beginning of last season!  She has also moved into Treasures Antiques where I work. 
Mark and Vicki have been doing the flea for at least four years!  
Keith works with me at the mall and has done Fleaology with us several times!  
Garna's a veteran dealer too, who also keeps a booth at Treasures. 
Rosemarie is probably my longest continuous dealer.  She been doing the flea for 9 of its 10 years!!  Her son Cole joined her several years back.  They are both Treasures dealers. 
Darrel is a long time antique dealer, who did some time at Treasures and who lives in my little town. He's done my sale for about 7 years. 
Jennie also lives here in Payson. She did Fleaology several years ago, then had a bout with cancer. We're so glad she's well and back with us again! 
These gals are both Treasures shoppers. Kelli, on the right, actually did a Fleaology 3 years ago, so it was good to have her back again. 
Mark and Denise had their own store when they joined us three years back. They have the distinction of never having missed a sale since they joined on.  They have now joined forces with Carla and Sherry of the Co-op chicks, who were part of the sale too, but of whom I didn't get pictures. 
Dianna and Orson have been with us for several years as well, though health has prevented their coming a few times. They always have great goodies! 
Wendy is a former Treasures and Fleaology dealer. She's now selling off her personal collections and it's been fun to have her back, if only temporarily 
Jami is new this year. She's a mover and shaker and has sold mostly on line in the past. She renews vintage pieces with chalk paint. She's also the leader of the ROCC group I belong to!! 
This is Brandy and this was her first show ever. Her Mom is well known in vintage groups, but she wanted to give it a shot.   The funny thing is that ...
Linsey, shown on the right, and Brandy went to school together, and I just happened to put them across from each other!  Lindsey was joining us for the second time. 
This is Kimberly and her support team.  She makes journals by ring binding old picture books and adding blank paper. This was her second sale. 
This is Chuck, another Treasures dealer who joins us now and again!  He does big buying trips and always has wonderful unique goodies. 
Johnathan is new to Treasures, and this was his first sale with us!  He shows a real talent for the business 
This is Logan, he and his wife Jacqualine     (shown later) have done other shows with me for a few years, but he came to our last show last year and has been a great addition ever since.   They are opening their own retro shop in Sugarhouse this month. It will be call Afterlife Vintage, so if your local keep an eye out!! 
This is Clam, a very serious and seriously talented artesian. This has been his first year joining us, and he and Margo have been an awesome addition. 
Jenn has been a part of Fleaology for more than 5 years, but this is the first year she has brought her trailer!! She is the owner of the 3 Dotters Vintage sale in Pleasant Grove. 
Nikki is another Treasures dealer, she's done Fleaology off and on for years!  We love it when we can get her! 
This is Felecia with her supportive husband. This was their first show joining us, we hope they had fun! 
Trish is the one in the leopard print. She is actually the person who started me in the business of selling antiques. She was with me at the estate sale where I found my long dreamed of historic house. 

She's been out of the business for a few years, but has joined us at the flea for the last two.  Somehow it just at feels right! 
This is Jenn again, with Jacqualine, who is also a trailer owner, and who started with us last year, you just met her husband Logan. 
This is a few of our former dealers who come back to join us as shoppers. In all we have almost 60 former dealers who have at one time done our show. Thankfully the friendships remain, and once in a while they come back for a single sale, like Wendy did this time. 
Thanks for stopping by and checking out our awesome dealers!! 

Just so you know, besides Carla and Sherry, I also missed, Pat, Nell, Melvina, John, Allison, Liz  and Mike.
