Bruce. . . an attitude of friendliness

It will only take you a minute or two of
being with fleattitude dealer Bruce
for you to realize that hes a

r e a l l y  n i c e  g u y .

As nice as the vintage Santas he sells?

Just maybe. . .

His day job is as a nursing home administrator, something he's been 
doing for 16 years.
Before that he was a recreation director
at Health South. 

He says he's worked in health care
for a looonng time.

You have to be a nice person
to do that,
dont you think?

Bruce says he likes selling at flea markets
because it is a quick way to move 
merchandise at a decent price.

Lucky for us, huh?

He also sells at Treasures Antique Mall
in Springville, where I perused his booth Looking for items to 
photograph for the blog.

He seems to like heads. . .

I asked Bruce how he got involved in the antique business, and completely loved his answer:

"I have always liked old junk. I think I got hooked on antiques when I was 14 years old. I worked for a lady who had bought an old mansion in American Fork. After they bought the property they started a demolition business to get salvage for their new property. I would got with her to pull salvage before the building was torn down. I found on old art deco lamp in the basement and ended up selling it for $275.00. It was then I realized that I could become rich from selling antiques (ha ha)."

One thing about Bruces booth, 
its diverse.  
Youll find just about anything.  
From kitsch to Royal Doulton.  
He says, “I sell anything I 
think I can make money on.”  

Have you checked out his new 
“retro” booth 
at Treasures?  Its

j u s t   p l a i n   f u n

Kinda like Bruce.

He describes himself as hard working
and always looking for new ways
to have fun.

Others would describe him as

You can't ask for much more in a guy than that, now can you?

Be sure to stop by Bruce's booth
at fleattitude and sit for a spell 

and you'll discover just how 


a flea market can be!

  1. How nice to see a post on Bruce...I just love him to a purely friendly way of course! LOL! He really is one of the nicest people that I've ever met in my life and he has great stuff in his booth too! Very cool that he is going to be a dealer at your new market! Bring some "pink" stuff with you to the show Bruce...just NOT the pink rhinestone poodle! (*_*)
