Meet the Funky Fleas!

Sharon Buttram and Kathy Hackshaw Co-Owners

Sharon and Kathy are long-time residents of the City of Fairfax. They love going to flea markets, estate sales, tag sales; if you sold it, they probably bought it!  


One day they looked around and realized they had TOO MUCH STUFF! Yes, there is such a thing. Their kids don't want it and they had NO MORE ROOM! 


So they knew they had to curate their collections and simplify their lives. And the result is their very own flea market! 

On a personal note, they have sons, daughters, dogs, cats, bees, vegetables, flowers, and ... supportive husbands!

Sharon and Kathy hope you enjoy visiting the Fairfax Funky Flea and they look forward to seeing you there!
