Want to Play?



You all know I love my numbers, digits and letters too.



That's probably part of the reason that I am attracted to old games...



I have quite a few...
...but I found these at the flea market last weekend...and couldn't resist.



So, my number today is 400!
That's right 400 posts!
Time for a Give-Away or as I like to call it a Give-Back!



Snap....



Whip snap, Cold snap, Button snap, Finger snap, Snap shot!



Snap Decision!

Big things are happening here at 52 FLEA...

Very soon I will be teaming up with another blogger friend ...
... and we will be holding a sale!

SHE loves to shop at the brocante in France!

...52 FLEA has a lifetime accumulation of ...well... old American stuff!

This will be our first sales EVENT...
...and a chance to kick off my new life outside of the corporate world.

Details of the sale will be coming soon...very soon!

My 400th post GIVE BACK ...
...(give back to you ...my blogging buddies who have given so much to me)...
... will include a variety of treasures that I have found on my flea market jaunts...AND
treasures found by HER at the brocante in France!...

Do you want to know who is in France, right this very minute, shopping every available brocante?

Do you want to know when this BIG EVENT is going to be?

Do you want to see pictures of what will be included in the 400 post give-back?

Do you want to see pictures of what will be included in the BIG EVENT sale?

...the French Brocante/American Flea Sale?

Do you want to Play?


If so, please come back tomorrow (Wednesday evening) for more details,
... find out WHO 52 FLEA is teaming up with...
...find out the rules and how to play this game and win the 400 POST GIVE-BACK!

Sorry to tease!
I'm still recouping from my twisted back....so will have some tantalizing pictures and answers ready for you tomorrow!

In fact....
...The first person to guess who 52 FLEA is teaming up with...
...will win a trinket straight from the French Brocante!

It's all coming together!
I'm so excited!
Will I be able to sleep tonight?

This sounds very exciting! Is it Tracey from French Larkspur?

By the way, I gravitate towards vintage games as well! I LOVE old Anagrams games...I use the little letters for all sorts of projects! The leftovers get displayed in glass jars!

Four HUNDRED posts! How exciting! I made my first post yesterday so four hundred sounds like climbing Mt. Everest. I have no idea who you are teaming up with, but my favorite collection. It's gotta be the buttons. Those delightful little buttons. No matter the shape, no matter the size, no matter the age, a button always has two eyes and a smile. Oh I love the buttons!
Blessings!
