Get your vintage fix at Wood Paper Stone, the Wedding Flea returns and a Mother’s Day market

VINTAGE FIX: WOOD PAPER STONE
A big shout-out to Facebook for introducing me to Wood Paper Stone. The new boutique in the Skyway Marina Mall is home to the vintage collection of Fabulous Artifacts, a.k.a. Lisa Lippincott. Just scrolling through the Facebook page, I found about 25 things I don't need but absolutely have to have, like these fun tikis, African head carving and Irish female figure, pictured. It's the tip of the vintage iceberg; there's everything from furniture to dinnerware to accessories to art. Wood Paper Stone officially opens Sunday, Mother's Day, and seems like a great place to visit with Mom. 1-4 p.m. Regular hours are noon-3 p.m. Thursday-Friday and 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday-Sunday, and by appointment. 4301 34th St. S, St. Petersburg.

SOMETHING OLD, SOMETHING NEW: THE WEDDING FLEA
The Wedding Flea, happening Saturday at the Crown Plaza Tampa Westshore, gives brides-to-be the opportunity to find wedding items at discounted prices. Newlyweds offer up their gently used decorations, including candlesticks and centerpieces. Isabel O'Neil Bridal has designer gown samples discounted up to 80 percent. Designer accessories, including veils, will also be discounted. There's more to discover, so grab your mom (because, Mother's Day) and a glass of champs from the Bubbly Bar and shop your way through that wedding checklist. 11 a.m.-2 p.m. First 100 brides get a free tote bag. $5. 5303 W Kennedy Blvd., Tampa. theweddingflea.wordpress.com.

GIFTS FOR MOM: MOTHER’S DAY MARKET
If you find yourself in a last-minute Mother’s Day gift jam, don’t worry. There’s a Mother’s Day Market at 3 Daughters Brewing on Sunday from 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Shop from vendors including Retro Nuevo Jewelry Designs, the Hawaiian Soap and Trading Company and Live Laugh Build. The market, which includes food trucks, benefits Alpha House of Pinellas County, which provides services to homeless pregnant women. 222 22nd St. S, St. Petersburg.
