11th Annual Flea Affaire in Granite Bay
Rocklin- Saturday May 18 from 9am until 3p.m., the Sierra College Patrons will hold the 11th annual Flea Affaire. Stroll through the private gardens of a Granite Bay home while searching for treasures from purveyors of antiques, furniture, collectibles, and garden accents.
Almost two dozen dealers will bring new and old garden items, vintage clothing, transfer ware, and jewelry. New dealers will be joining us this year. Be sure to see Elizabeth and her beautiful pots from Vietnam. One of her large pots in your garden will be just the right accent! Kim Keeley will bring her repurposed furniture. And returning will be Nancy Okey with country primitives, the Richters and their wonderful French accents, and Kim's estate jewelry.
Plan to have lunch in the beautiful garden . Delightful pastries, light lunches and snacks and beverages will be available for purchase. There are places throughout the garden to sit and enjoy your chicken or albacore croissant sandwich. If you are coming with a group call Julie at 916-652-4840 for a table reservation.
The location of the event is 5130 Moss Lane, in Granite Bay. From Douglas in Granite Bay, go approximately 3.2 miles on Auburn/Folsom Road, north to Moss Lane on your left. Follow the signs on Moss Lane. The gate opens at 9 a.m. Parking will be available on the property at our direction.
