day at the market

there was another flea market a couple towns away this weekend, and on sunday my mom and i snuck off with one (whiney) kid in tow.

these colors scream spring to me. love the blue pot.

this cabinet reminded me of the original built-ins our house had in it. see the 2 plates on the bottom shelf? they’re in my house now, added to my collection of mismatched floral china. 2 bucks a piece! can you believe it? thank you mom!

where do i start? the little 10 cents sign, the box with all the tiny compartments, the enamel bowl on the floor, the great baskets under the table – OH THE TABLE!! i wanted to take it home with me, and put it behind my couch. i was hoping the price was around free-thirty-free. i was close. it wasn’t for sale. what a tease!

a jadite colored sink. ahhhh. so stinkin’ cute.

i really loved the way this seller displayed her wares. i tried to talk my mom into the round mirror in the back. since my parents are into boating i thought it looked nautical. she didn’t go for it.

in the end. we walked away with a dresser for the loft and a pile of plates for gifts. all in all, not too shabby!

    It’s probably good I didn’t go. I would have spent way too much money for stuff i didn’t need or have room for. but, I do want to go antiquing with you sometime and when we go, i’ll be counting on you to keep me in line.

    Where are these great flea markets at? In my town we never have anything like this… it's usually just junk but this stuff looks like trasure. Daisy~
