Third Space incorporates flea market, shops, studios

By From page A4 | September 15, 2013

The Davis Flea Market continues to expand and evolve.

Scheduled for the last weekend of every month, the next “Davis Flea” runs from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sept. 28 and 29. There will be more than 40 vendors, live music and food trucks.

But the bigger news is that its permanent home since June — three warehouse spaces at 946 Olive Drive behind Redrum Burger — has a new name: Third Space. The spaces include the flea market, pop-up shops and an art/music studio.

Third Space is “a new, multipurpose space housing pop-up shops, gigs, art studios, workshops and more,” its website, www.thirdspacedavis.com, states. “Our goal is to create a more accessible marketplace for artists and entrepreneurs, and to connect local and touring talent with audiences and collaborators.”

The “pop-up shops” are designed as startup spaces for new businesses. The first one, Hope Chest Home, opened this month. Hours are 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesdays through Sundays. Noelle Walsh owns the store, which began online, and features her jewelry and antique and vintage décor. For information, visit www.etsy.com/shop/HopeChestHome.

The third component of Third Space is the art and music studio space. For upcoming concerts, art shows and do-it-yourself workshops, visit www.thirdspacedavis.com/art.


Art Lessons by Joyce is moving from South Davis to Woodland this month. The studio is open through Monday, and will reopen with full services on Dec. 1 at 1742 Campos Ave., Woodland.

Joyce Winter, a credentialed teacher who taught art at Birch Lane Elementary for the past five years, offers private and small group art lessons, including 2-D and 3-D art. Most supplies are provided.

She offers lessons for beginners through professionals, ages 4 and up, “with an emphasis on nurturing the creative spirit and improving technique,” she said. She also does portraits, landscapes, still lifes and art-themed birthday parties.

Students may retrieve projects at the new address through Dec. 30. Calll 530-574-7653 for more information.
