It has rained here EVERY single day for at least a month. Not just a little
shower but big storms with lots of thunder and lightning. Every time it rains
we lose internet connection…ughh. The clouds are moving in so I am typing
really fast to get this post finished.
Our current town doesn’t have many thrift stores or antique shops. What it
does have is a large farmer/flea market every weekend. We go every Saturday
to buy our fresh vegetables and fruit.
This market is not like the cute ones some of you are close enough to visit. I
envy those that live close to Scotts, Cantons, Lucketts and all those other
fabulous vintage markets.
You won’t find any shabby chic, painted furniture, darling vintage items,
antiques or beautiful antique rugs. What you will find in abundance is
tools, lawnmowers, DVDs, used toys and lots of engine parts. We normally
buy our fruits and vegetables, run through the rest of the flea market in
record time and back home within an hour.
Occasionally rarely there is a dealer there with a few things of interest and luckily
I have bought them at a really great price. Take a look below at my recent flea
This large transferware tureen is in perfect condition and a great bargain at $2.00!
You know how much I love seashells and anything coastal. I found this big piece
of coral sitting inside a dirty aquarium. I didn’t want the aquarium so the dealer sold
me just the coral for $1.00. Yipeee
I grabbed both of these and ran to the car before
they could change their mind.
You can see our giant clam shell in the corner…still loving it.
The blue and white grain sack fabric is from Décor Steals and I plan on covering
two chairs with it. The chairs are currently in storage until we buy a house.
Check back to see my other great finds. In the meantime I hope you will visit
