Flea Market Time - June


Here comes another installment of flea market time :) Were you out there looking for wonderful finds? I was! And unlike last time, I came back home with full bags. ;) The day was beautiful, I was glad to enjoyed it, as usual, with my husband and daughter, well she came with us but this time she was volunteering for the flea market organizers, The Germantown Historical Society.

One of the things I liked the most were these pretty 7" blue Mason jars, their lids look rusty and old but the glass seems to be new :/  Anyhow, I like them whether old or new, the price for the three of them: $7. I think it was a fair price.

At first sight I didn't know what was this next item, I liked the wooden pegs, once expanded I really liked it, and after knowing the price $0.25 I knew it was mine :)

The next items were from a vendor that had a "anything on the table $1" sale, I quickly packed this wooden train car.

I love the red sign on it.

I also grabbed this burlap rice sack. I'm going to try and make it work as a pillow cover for the guest room, on my inspiration board I had a picture of some pillows with designs just like this one.

It wouldn't be any easier, it already has a zipper, so it only needs a pillow form.


From a different vendor I got the next burlap sack. Price: $2.
Check the Office chair transformation done with it -right HERE.

A glass bottle to keep my collection growing, I already put it on the shelves in the powder room where I have many others.

The little faucet was the feature that stood out to me. The price: $1.

As soon as I saw this watering can, I pictured it adorning my potting benches.

It had a $8 price tag but after discussing its condition with the owner, we got it for $4.

I don't know where in my home this candelabra is going to fit! I like its colors and lines. I'm not fond of the bells, they keep on jingling each time I move it. Price: $4.

A set of wooden sconces, maybe for the backyard if it's finished someday! One dollar each.

It looks like my decorative light fixture switch was on because here comes more lighting!  ;) I love the design on these sconces, again, I don't know where I'm going to place them, but for only $10, they can wait for that place to appear.

Love the little circles and diamonds :)

Finally, this pendant light.  Pardon my ignorance but I don't know what kind of fixture is this?! I did a Google image search but it came out with nothing. Do you know something about it? If so, please let me know.
It had a price tag of $50, but after a 75% discount, yeah flea market discounts ;) we got it for $13.

Hey and I already know where to install it, I guess you know it too ;)

All in all we spent $45. Whooo that was fun!

Most of June's Flea Market finds were used to decorate my guest room right HERE.

  3. Ha, thanks for the link Linda! It looks like I have 2 with the Logo 5 and one with the Logo 6. That's totally awesome, I thought they were fake!

    Find one of your nearest flea markets, their prices are usually better than the ones at thrift stores. Well, you have to check by yourself because it varies from town to town, but of course give it try!

  9. Thanks Julie! I just did an online search and yeah, you're totally right! I'd never thought of using it to store mugs, if only I had some extra space in my kitchen! :(
    I might have to use it somewhere else.
