Can you imagine having all these ceramic fittings in your bathroom? This was one of my favorite tables at the flea market this weekend. We had wonderful weather. We are normally fair weather flea market goers, which means August is out...too hot! We found alot of treasures. Here is a shot of a vendor that had some lovely chandeliers.
Mr. Hughes helped me to put together this little video of some of the incredible (look for the large brown pleated ottoman...would look great in white linen) and interesting things(the viking helmet that I wouldn't let Mr. Hughes get to mow the lawn in.) Please excuse the roughness...Mr. Hughes had some trouble with the editing software.
After we left the flea market, I needed to go to the bathroom BAD!! I don't do the rest rooms there! So, I told Mr. Hughes to stop at the nearest, cleanest bathroom that just happened to be at Gas Lamp Antique Mall. I'm pretty wiley, huh? Well, what do you know? We found some treasures there too. Here are a few of the things that I thought were particularly wonderful.
I have a thing lately for naked lamps... love what this retro booth did with the tags!
These posters were from a salesman's catalog. They had spaces for fabric swatches on the back. I may go back and get these for Mr. Hughes' office/library.
This isn't my style, but I love the orange, retro thing this booth has going on.
This booth was great! I wanted to take this home even though I have no place for it.
Now, are you ready to see what I brought home with me?
I bought this vintage cart.... AFTER we went to the flea market. How crazy is that? We were talking about buying a new one there, but luckily, Baby Hughes wanted out of his stroller and graciously let us use it to haul our stuff! I think I am either going to put my oval German license plate on it or make a vintage junky sign.
And, this vintage fireplace insert. I saw one a few months back that was a little larger and looked like zinc and was much more than I would pay. So, I was thrilled when I found this one at the flea market. I will probably put 3 plants on it in front of our fireplace. It won't come into the house until Baby Hughes gets a little more steady on his feet. I can just see him falling and hitting his head on it.And, all of these goodies! This is a mixture from the antique store and the flea market. That number 7 milk cooler came from fellow blogger Theresa from time-worn interiors. She was so sweet to talk to and her booth was beautiful!! I wish she would come every month, Mr. Hughes is secretly glad that she doesn't! I got the wonderful shield frame and the naked lampshade... I think the dealer thought I was nuts when I asked him if I could buy just the wire frame and not the gorgeous lamp it was attached to. I found a couple of ironstone pieces... a $1 plate and a toothbrush holder. I have never even seen one before. I got the 2 grey soda crates to store canned food in when we redo our pantry. And a giant flower frog... pretty neat huh?
We finished off our Saturday by eating at Mellow Mushroom (yum!) and going to a few shops in Downtown Franklin. Only bought a small plant there that is destined to die, but it looks cute under my cloche for now. So, I hope you enjoyed my little tour of the flea market and my blatant bragging of my wonderful finds!
