flea market finds...

Posted February 23, 2011 by Christina







This is just a little bit of me... playing with some of the new things that I picked up at the flea market.

I was thinking the other day about the flea market and how much I love going.  It is the trill of the hunt, I love finding things that have a history and make me smile.  They can be quirky and beautiful and when they all come together they say something about the newest owner.  

I find when I am there that I have a huge range of things that catch my eye.  Even though I love some things they are not meant for me.  I keep them here while they wait for another home.  So I put up a little section in the shop that is perfect for these things..

A little on line flea market just for you..

Don't miss your chance to win from Shabby Apple here!

Fabulous pieces you found and I’m love that cup in the second picture with the harp stem. You play well with your new found treasures. I’m off to check out your shop to see what you listed!

So beautiful! I love the thrill of “Flea-ing” too. Some of my favorite objects around my home are from flea markets near and far. You clearly have a fantastic eye, I love your finds!
