At The Flea Market

Last weekend, as I told you before, the weather was gorgeous.  It was a bit cold early in the morning when we (the hubs and me), headed to our community flea market.  We usually walk, but this time we drove to get there.  It was the first one to be held this year, so I was pretty excited to walk around looking for those special finds!

There were not as many vendors as usual but nonetheless we managed to come back home with some treasures.

My husband liked these binoculars, he was looking for vintage cameras, but there were none.  I love the binoculars leather case and my kids thought they were very "cool".  The price $5.



I'm growing my stash of silver pieces, the one with the rounded shape and little feet is my favorite so far.  It's price $3.
A little research on the other one gave me an Ebay copy cat: "The White Horse Scotch Pewter Jug Liquor Pitcher" it sells there for $35,  more than what we payed for all of our finds.  My pitcher was only $2.



Two silver vases, not crazy about the color but they might come in handy for photo sessions!  $2 each.



A set of picture frames that were not in great condition.



But I liked their summer feel, hmmm maybe because of the dolphin :)  Well, for only a dollar for both of them, what's not to like!



The first find of the day was this basket/tray, I loved the chunky feel, the materials, at first I didn't like the color.



But it worked perfectly during my new family room wall reveal.  I might paint it though.  The price $2.




Last but not least a pair of router bits.  The biggest expense, $10 for both!  If I get them at the store the price will be way higher than that.



Something else that we came home with was this vibrant chair, it was picked from the curb! I need to check what kind of damage it has and if it's something is worth fixing, just looking at it makes me smile.



Those were all our finds.  We were thinking on spending only $20, we ended up paying $28.  The router bits were the ones who set us backwards, but hey I know it's a good buy!

How about you?! Have you attended a flea market this year, are my prices comparable with the ones in your area?  What's your greatest find so far?

I can't wait to attend next month's flea market!

Hugs,

  1. Amazing finds, I know I am all about home decor but those binoculars and the leather case make me so jealous! I hit the flea markets earlier in March, but the offer was very skim and sad... perhaps I need to try again this weekend :)

  12. Oh, mercy, no! You definitely have the best prices where you are! Can I come visit?? LOL You found some fabulous things and the chair reminded me of a find of mine, years ago! Same thing. Found it on the curb for free! And it stayed in my back yard until it was time to say enough with all the damage it was getting from being outdoors. It did make such a charming area to gaze out from the kitchen window, though!

  13. Those are some great finds Cristina, especially the router bits! The binoculars remind me of a set we used to have when I was a kid. I'm sure we'll be seeing some of those items again in new and fun ways.

  18. I am loving the tarnished silver - always on my list. The chunky tray would look great in a distressed paint finish with some of the natural showing through. I love the chase for treasures!
