Our local Kane County Flea Market is held the first weekend of every month March through December and I rarely miss it. This month was no exception and I found a few treasures. I’m always on the hunt for white ironstone and vintage mirrors and usually come home with something. So what did I find last weekend?
Some of the vendors at the flea market over-price their items, in my opinion. It’s a flea market after all, not an antique store. I won’t buy items that carry retail store prices but I’m still able to get some bargain flea market finds, like this little platter for $8.
The last of the ironstone flea market finds is this smaller pitcher, which I snagged for $12. I’ve gotten to the point where I can find better ironstone prices at the flea market than I can on Ebay … plus there aren’t any shipping fees! Now onto something completely different …
I bought 2 of these, but wish I would’ve bought more at just $10 each. They fold up easy and are great to haul out when needed. I’m probably giving them a coat of white wash. And just in case you’re wondering if my recent haul of flea market finds included vintage mirrors …
… the answer is yes! This pair of heavy wooden mirrors was $25. If you look closely, you’ll see where hinges were attached to these mirrors, which makes me think they were attached to a larger mirror in the middle atop a vanity. I’ll probably refinish these.
The third and final mirror I purchased is solid wood and has this scroll work on the top. I’m not a fan of the gold finish and have already painted this mirror but haven’t distressed it yet. I love the detail on this flea market find that I scored for just $35.
It’s a decent size mirror and in good shape so I was happy to find it. Will it go on my stairway gallery of mirrors (which is coming soon), or will it go in the living room? I haven’t decided yet so stay tuned!
Total Cost of June Flea Market Finds = $132
