Behind the scenes of the HYD Flea

taryn mcLean

Tomorrow is the big day! The HYD Flea is one of our favorite events each season for so many reasons. We just thought it'd be fun to tell you a little about all the fun (and the crazy) that goes on during prep week.

Collecting for each flea starts just after the previous one ends. As we assist our clients with organizing, moving, or just rearranging their homes or offices, we carefully select items from them that they'd like to sell. This has been a great way to help folks let go of items they no longer need, allow clients to make a little money, and for us to create a shop filled with unique pieces you can't find anywhere else!

The week of the sale is a little bonkers to say the least. : ) We're so very thankful for the guys at Moving Time who help us pick up the items at our client's homes and get them safely to The Hive! They are so good with our clients and careful with their home goods. Once the items are in the door, the task of inventorying and tagging begins and HYD takes great care to research values &/or information so that we get the right price for both the client and the shopper.

Then comes the placement of all the goods. Now THIS is a job. We move stuff so many times before it gets in just the right spot. It's been such a gift to get to host the flea each season at The Hive. The space showcases the beauty of all the pieces and allows shoppers to enjoy a lovely atmosphere while they shop and visit with friends.

The day of the flea is lots of fun as well. So many old friends make their way through the door and lots of new ones as well! Music is playing, there's usually coffee to share, and lots of fun finds for your home.
