I just realized that I haven't shown you my lovelies from the last flea market. I think I have pulled together all the items that I am keeping. I listed some of the other goodies in my etsy store. I actually went twice!! On Friday, it was raining, so many of the vendors had their treasures under wraps. I felt so cheated, so the wonderful Mr. Hughes suggested we go back Sunday after Church. So this is my loot! I got a couple of vintage frames and a great old medicine cabinet that just might have to have a little makeover. And here is a closeup of one of those items that has been seeking me:
Ahhhh ironstone! Look at the patina! And it has a few cracks here and there! And, it is large!! I found this lovely in a booth full of mishmash on Friday. The gentleman that ran the booth informed me that he was a picker for a very expensive antique store in Nashville. And that he picked it especially for her. Well, I told him that she was out of luck because I was taking that pitcher home!! For $15! I know if I would have let her buy it, I would be lusting after it for the bargain price of $115!
And, it wouldn't be a productive trip without a few letters...
Pretty neat, huh? I am not sure what I am going to do with them yet but they sure are fabulous. And, I made away with some numbers too....
This is actually a deck of cards from some old card game. There are numbers 1-15. I am keeping Baby Hughes' birthday and will find something to do with it. I will list sets of these in my shop soon.
Well, that is all of my flea market goodies for this month. Oh... look at what I got in the mail today!
Mr. Hughes was sweet enough to design me a business card! I feel so official. I want to thank all of you for your sweet, encouraging comments about the opening of my etsy shop. It really means alot to me!
So, I hope to show some more of the fall decorating... it has been raining since Sunday... and I am itching to get some more pumpkins
