Do you shop flea markets? If you do, have you ever been to one where nothing jumped off the shelf and screamed “Take me home!” And so you leave empty-handed and disappointed, like a kid at Christmas who didn’t get that Red Ryder BB Gun. Our flea market rolls into town once a month and it’s a doozy! The last two times I went nothing really tugged at my heart strings, but I’m happy to say that wasn’t the case this past Saturday. I found a few things that I really liked. Wanna see my flea market haul?
Vintage Christmas, white ironstone, a small mirror, pretty bottles, and a few crafting supplies, and vintage graphics are some of the lucky items that followed me home. It looks like a mess strewn out on the table!
Best price I could find was 3 ornaments for $5. The faux mercury bottle with shiny feather was $12.
They’re not antiques, but they’re pretty and will look fabulous in my kitchen this December.
I told myself I wouldn’t buy anymore until I hung the last ones I bought.
But then I saw this white one that’s hiding behind the bowl. It was only $10, after all!
I found this lovely red and white ribbon at Jennifer Rizzo‘s booth.
I bought the 2 ironstone plates from another vendor at $3 each.
I found a spool of tinsel twine too – shown in the first photo.
It was one of the first things added to my flea market haul this weekend.
The bottle at left was $6.50 and the one on the right was $5.50.
And that’s without the decorative embellishments.
She’s at the flea market every month and has items for sale in a local store, too.
I have a plan for both these graphics so stay tuned to see what I do with them.
I honestly don’t know which item I like the best, but now I’m one step closer to being ready for Christmas!
But it’s still Fall, and to celebrate … I’m joining 10 bloggers this week to enjoy the Scents of the Season.
