Flea Market Lovelies!

We went to the Flea Market on Saturday at the Fairgrounds.  The October one is "the big one" plus the mayor of Nashville recently announced that after next June, they will no longer be having the flea market.  Needless to say, I think the entire state of Tennessee was there on Saturday.  We waited in traffic for probably 45 minutes to even get in the gate.  Then when we got in people were pushing and tripping and it was a mess!  So, we didn't stay long, but here is what I found that I am keeping!



I found this lovely scale and probably the most unloved piece of ironstone ever!  Both handles broken and very, very stained.  And, I found some vintage black and white striped ribbon.




The black scale is actually replacing this cream one that I found at a past flea market.  Mr. Hughes and I decided we like the black one better and I don't need multiples of everything.  So, I will be listing this one in my etsy shop.  I am keeping the black oval frame and the little ironstone creamer... I just can't let it go.

  6. I don't attend the Flea Market at the Fairgrounds that often but I do enjoy it when I go. Hate that it will be ending it seems to be a fixture type thing in Nashville's history that will be coming to an end. I know that I have been going out there off and on for 30 years.
    Thanks for sharing.
