Fleakin' Friday 8.3.18
HAPPY first friday of august!
We're still a bit confused how became August so quickly, but - here we are! The slightly lower temps this week (i.e. not in high 90s everyday) were much appreciated and kept us all in high spirits. And while our Fall Flea vendor applications are now open (more info on this page for those of you who are interested), we're still very much in summer mode here at Denver Flea HQ.
If you're staying in town this weekend, we suggest making a stop at the Truck Stop Rally on Santa Fe tonight for an art walk x food truck fest (Devon and Megan will be there!), taking advantage of Penny Admission Saturday at the MCA, and then heading to Wendell's on Tennyson Street for a Sunday brunch complete with scrambles, creative savory toasts, and buttermilk pancakes with berry compote and clotted cream.
Sending out off into our first August weekend with some of the things our team has been in to lately:
Own a small business and want a better (AND FREE!) way to invoice your clients to ensure you get paid on time for your services? Wave App is a nifty, easy-to-use tool just for that. Highly recommended for freelancers and small businesses.
Blake went to Nashville to attend the Porter Flea and found a great local brand - Oil & Lumber, who cuts and sews all their products. He got a their Classic Crewneck Knit Tee, which is in the good ole USA from 100% organic cotton and not to mention, very comfy.
Team Flea Fav and RiNo gem, Call, was the sole Denver eatery to make Bon Appetit’s ‘America’s Best New Restaurants of 2018’.
Megan recently discovered Backpacker’s Pantry Freeze Dried Food, and highly recommends it for your next backpacking trip. They’re locals from Boulder and have partnered with Flea OGs, Mountain Standard, to create more backpacking and camping sustenance such as Power On Protein Pancakes, Breakfast Scramblers and Salsas that you might have samples during Summer Flea!
Three cheers for these badass ladies disrupting their industry one power move at a time.
We'll admit it - our team is La Croix obsessed and this video gave us quite the laugh.
A stylin' tip for all our guy readers - the relatively humid weather recently has been wreaking havoc on Blake's ability to style his hair effectively. Thank goodness for Imperial hair products, giving Blake and men everywhere a fighting chance each morning. '
Daydreaming about living that #vanlife (for the summer at least) after reading this.
Staying in tonight? Take note of this pro face mask tip from Girl's Night In - combine apple cider vinegar with this cult-fave for a detoxing face mask.
Fall is right around the corner, and we’re swooning over the transitional-solving / layering Inso by Madewell.
Circling back on our "In My Feelings" obsession from last week - the official music video has dropped.
