Flea Market Finds and a Giveaway



This past weekend was a pretty busy one for me! At the end of each day I was totally exhausted but so happy of tackling some projects that were long due!


One of our lately routines on weekends  has been for me and hubby to go around the neighborhood for a walk. 

Saturday morning was no exception, but this time I planned my walk to the Flea Market.  It is set up the first Saturday of each month at the Train station's parking lot, like six blocks away from our home.

I have to admit ... I'm new at doing this! But I've been reading so many stories of people finding wonderful things that... I was ready to give it a try, besides with Hubby aboard, the one who loves to haggle, I was more than ready!



The day was perfect! a very sunny, warm day with not so many people around!


Here I am with some of my treasures!


Back at home, admiring our deals.




Check out that Linotype drawer! We got it for $10.  I think I already know where to put it to good use!
Hubby really liked the Brass Fireplace Log Holder, $1.  And of course he couldn't come back home without a cable! Networking Cable! Don't know why? He has hundreds already in the basement!


The first things I spotted! Don't you just love these globes?! and two of them!! the one that was being used I got it for one buck!  For the new one still in the box the price went up.






But here is the thing!  ...  I am very happy having one! the rusty, dusty one!  
The New One still in the box I am giving it away today as a  Giveaway!

How wonderful! I just became your newest follower, as you have a great blog, which I love sweet friend. I wanted to comment before and boy, it was so difficult, you were not the only one! Happy I'm here to see your great finds, I love the spheres, or globes, they are such great decorating element, I have one I love for many years, now. Lots of hugs and thanks for your lovely and kind visit.

These are such great finds. I love that they do the flea market at the train station, how cool! I found you at Savvy Southern Style's link Wow Us Wednesdays party. Hope you'll stop by and see what's up at "my place" as well!

Sheila said...

Great finds. I love the globes. What a steal! I was thinking they remind me of a pottery barn, restoration hardware or ballard designs sort of accessory. I absolutely love them. If I won I think it would find a nice place for it on my fireplace mantle or perhaps on my buffet in the DR. Following on GFC.

Katie Goldsworthy said...

Great finds! I love the drawer!!! I think it's so funny your husband came back with a cable. Sounds like something my husband would come back with :)

I love the globes. I think it is awesome that you are giving one away. I used to be a travel agent so globes are very cool to me. I would use it on my desk at work. That way I know I would enjoy it everyday and so could every one there. Following thru gfc

Terry said...

I am a Google follower and love globe armillaries! This one is so cool and I would move it around the house to decorate with it in different vignettes. Nothing is static in my home.

Followed you on GFC! I am seriously addicted to all things "globes"... Love love LOVE those gorgeous ones you found!

What wonderful finds!

Desiree Siegel said...

Hi there! I am following you on the linky thing but when I tried to follow you on the other one, it wouldn't let me because of the linky thing. I liked you on facebook but I don't know how to twitter. Someday, I will accomplish that! I love the globe! I think I would put it in my bathroom and maybe lightly tape a little "map" to it, to "inspire" my hubby to plan a family vacation other than the local zoo which is located 20 minutes from our house! Think it would work? ;)
