The Parisian Flea Market is a one-of-a-kind shopping experience that raises funds to benefit Fair Haven, a non-profit that assists seriously ill patients traveling to Indy for treatment.
It’s happening Friday, Oct. 8 & Saturday, Oct. 9, 2021 from 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. at Clay Terrace in Carmel. Tricia Trick Eckert, board president of Fair Haven joined us today to share more about the event.
The Parisian Flea Market is Fair Haven’s largest annual fundraiser. The ninth annual shopping event is inspired by the eclectic flea markets of Paris that attract treasure hunters from all over the world. It features a unique collection of upscale and hand-selected items including home accessories, furniture, mirrors, chandeliers, dishware, estate jewelry, art and gift items. Volunteer designers from Rowland Design will use their talents to transform the space into a shoppers’ paradise.
Fair Haven hosts PFM annually to support its program to provide a “home away from home” for seriously ill patients and their families who travel to Indianapolis to receive treatment for cancer, high-risk pregnancy, cardiovascular disease, organ transplant, and more. More than 150 volunteers work together to make the market a success and introduce Fair Haven’s mission to the community.
“Fair Haven’s mission is to serve people in this difficult time of their lives, as they’re battling a serious illness while far from home,” said Amanda Milner, founder and executive director of Fair Haven. “We are able to fulfill that mission thanks to our generous sponsors, volunteers, and the Parisian Flea Market shoppers from all over the community. Their support is a wonderful demonstration of true Hoosier Hospitality. By giving these patients a place to stay near the hospital, they are able to receive the critical care they need and also able to have family support around them. This lifts a huge burden for these families – for them, it is truly a refuge in the storm.”
Tickets are $5, and they’re available at the door or at fairhavenfoundation.org. Children 16 and under are FREE.
SAFETY PLAN: The event will follow the safety protocols of the Clay Terrace Mall.

Here We Grow Again is coming up and moms are gettting pumped about the bargains, the hunt of a item and savings, but there is more to a consignment sale than just a good deal. Katie Awwad from the Here We Grow Again Consignment Sale joined us today to explain what exactly that means.
The sale is happening from October 6 – 9 at the Hendricks County fairgrounds.
What to expect for this 18th sale of HWGA Indy West:
- 125,000 items ( biggest yet)
- Hot items include Halloween costumes
- Fast check out lines
- Popular items like American Girl and Legos for Christmas
One thing you can expect there that you can’t shop for is the feel of community and support from other parents
Moms and dads around the county can’t wait to come help to be a part of something encouraging. It’s more than a sale but almost like a support group for families.
During this sale, we have tried to reach out to moms that have new talents, businesses and hobbies. We have such a good base to really help showcase these moms, so we have asked some
moms to come showcase their items! This includes Indy Style’s own, Amber Hankins, who will be there Saturday, Oct. 9th from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Take a look at these comments from people who have had positive experiences at the sale:
“Having an entire community that will help you find unicorn items to surprise your child with is heartwarming. Paying less than retail is just a bonus!”
“It’s coming home. Not divided, we are coming together for a single purpose. We are parents looking to do the best we can for our kiddos. And to support others in the same, lifting each other up. It’s busy and hectic, but peaceful all at once. The drama and negativity of the outside world just doesn’t make it in.”
“That when life punches you in the gut, the same mommas that you stage the floor or run registers with show up with an abundance of love, food, and encouragement to help get you through.”
