Flea Market Finds~

Hi all. Hope your enjoying your weekend. 
Just wanted to show you some awesome pieces I found at the flea market today. Our flea market that's been in our town at the local college for years just moved to a different spot. It's still pretty close, and now it's a lot bigger it seems and is in a great location. I went this morning and just about froze, the wind was super chilly and then it started to rain, so I was lucky to find the wonderful treasures I did.

FYI~ The photos are not that great. Like I said it's rainy today, so I had to edit them a bit. I really need to take a photo class!!!

These Antique French documents I purchased form a wonderful Etsy Shop called "The Petite Market".
The top document is a beautiful blue color but my photos just didn't turn out very well.

I got this amazing vintage cabinet made from old barn wood, SUPER cheap!!! It has two doors that close and 3 drawers on the inside. It use to be part of an old work bench. I thought I was going to sell it at first, but it looks awesome as my TV stand.

I also picked up these 2 vintage baskets, again, they were cheap. I paid for them and ran for the exit before she changed her mind!

Here's another photo of the cabinet. 

Sorry about all of the photos of the baskets, I'm loving them!!
Wishing you all a great week!

  9. Melinda, the cabinet and baskets are great finds! Nothing like bringing treasures home from a flea market....they would fit right in over at my Tuesday's Club G.W. with Charm Bracelet Diva Party, going up live tomorrow night. Hope to see you there!


  10. Love that cabinet and those baskets - no wonder you ran for the exit! Sounds like you had fun regardless of the weather, and came home with some great treasures.

  11. LOVE your baskets! I went fleamarketing too and found an old shoe rack!! LOVE your post! xoxo

  14. Oh you did good darlin....love all your finds..bet you were like a kid in a candy shop!!! x0x0

  15. Hi Miss Melinda,
    My hubby and I were there too, braving the elements.
    I found some great stuff in the midst of trying to help vendors cover their merchandise from the rain. I felt so bad for them and felt really grateful that we didn't have to do that anymore. The rain didn't deter us, and many other shoppers, from continuing our hunt. That's what umbrellas are for after all. lol
    I'm taking all my Christmas merchandise to Country Roads tomorrow. Stop by and take a peek when you're there.


  16. Great finds Melinda! I know the feeling of running out the door. Also when someone comments on what you have in your cart at the thrift store, it's not going back on the shelf now for sure!
    Those baskets are amazing!
    Happy Friday to you~SueBee
