Our Story


On a whim, Michael and I rented a booth space inside a local up-scale flea market. We thought we would test the waters in order to see if we would really enjoy the adventure. We got hooked, fast!

Many months later, we set out to an estate sale to grab one item we saw advertised – Captain Jack, a vintage ceramic peg-leg ship captain. Upon walking into the store, Captain Jack was at the door welcoming us. The next thing we knew we had purchased the contents of the estate sale and leased the space. Our voyage has begun…

The Blue Flamingo was born out of a desire to sail our own course and to share our passion for unique, quirky and one-of-a-kind items. Inside our shop you will find up-cycled and repurposed goods, renewed furniture, décor, jewelry, and many other unique items from several local artisans.
