Third Space incorporates flea market, shops, studios


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,, 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

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


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.
