Yes! We made it down on Saturday afternoon. The weather was lovely and the crowds weren’t too bad. I snapped some pictures of some of my favorite things … including a couple of purchases for myself and a couple of “Wish – I – Had -Boughts”.
Isn’t this pretty? I love the chunky wood bowl and the assortment of blue and green glass balls. I was about to scoop up a selection of them for myself and then learned they were $20 a piece. Yikes! Not everything is cheap at a flea market.
On the other hand, just a few feet away were these wonderful vintage fishing floats. I have seen these in magazines and stores for $75 plus a piece. These were only $30! Score! Mine now gives a lovely pop of color and some visual interest to the the bookshelves in my family room.
I loved these colorful letters of the alphabet … each one was different, with lots of character, color and pattern. These would be cute in a child or teen’s room.
How fun are these vintage shoe molds? I’d love to see the whole collection on a man’s dresser, but even one makes an interesting prop on a bookshelf or console table.
I love, love, love these chairs … and would have bought them in a second if I didn’t already have chairs for my kitchen table. Perfect for kids as they would easily wipe clean. I love their industrial look …
… and the variety of colors!
While not personally my taste, Braden would have liked to bring this green dinosaur home.
Oh how I wish I had a place for this cart. I think his would be perfect in an older kitchen that is in need of an island or it would be great as a dining room buffet filled with plates, wine bottles and pretty napkins in the little drawers.
We ALMOST came home with these lockers to put down in our lower level for all of the boys’ indoor sports equipment. We kind of chickened out because of the size and not knowing how to get it home. It definitely helps to have a very large vehicle with you at flea markets, just in case you come across something great that’s also BIG!
How fun is this dresser? It would be easy to replicate with an old dresser and some paint.
If you read my post on Friday, you’ll see that I did come across several of the things on my Treasure Hunt List.
This great old corbel …
… a nice little vintage suitcase (that I purchased for Braden’s room)
… and some great vintage signs.
So that was our trip … looking forward to the next one!
