Flea Style Takes Home Decor Entrepreneur Under its Wing in New Mentorship Program

Flea Style has selected Lindsey Overton of Krisen Home as its first mentorship recipient.

Dallasite Lindsey Overton found inspiration to pursue her entrepreneurial dreams at a Flea Style event, so it’s only fitting that she’ll serve as its first mentorship recipient. 

“Kate Levering said something at the Flea Style Summit that really put into words how I felt as a new mom,” Overton recalled in a blog posted on the Flea Style website. “She was describing her experience with time off after babies and said, ‘I didn’t know where I had value if I wasn’t achieving.’ This statement really resonated with me.”

The conference gathering local creatives grew out of the popular artisan pop-up events from Southern Methodist University graduate and former lifestyle editor Brittany Cobb. The company added a lifestyle label and e-commerce component last year and in December announced a mentorship program to help creatives develop their small businesses. 

 As a mentee, Overton will receive guidance on growing her budding home decor startup, Krisen Home. The six-month mentorship program also includes branding opportunities, $250 to spend at Office Depot, and a guest spot at the upcoming summit. 

“What Brittany and the Flea Style team have built — from curated markets, a community for creatives, a cool conference, workshops, and an online store — is incredible. I cannot wait to receive what is sure to be sound advice for our business!” Overton said in the blog post.
