Happy Monday, Everyone!
It's a no school day today and even though I crave routine, sometimes it's really nice to have an extra day just to catch up. It's been a pretty frantic weekend around here. As you know, on Friday Brian & I headed up to Seattle to see Justin Timberlake (yes, again). We got home on Saturday night then it was up early Sunday morning to head to the flea market. So this morning, I have no place to rush off to so I can have that third cup of coffee and share with all of you what I found at the flea market yesterday.
I love going to the flea market when it's around a holiday. I bought this huge bag of vintage valentine's for super cheap. I have quite a collection of them already but these are the perfect size for the banner that I am hoping to make today.
These table runners have just the right colors for either Spring or Fall.
This tablecloth has no holes but a few stains so the seller sold it to me for cheap. She told me she hadn't tried to clean it yet so I'm confident I can get it looking new again.
One seller had these two pieces of Fire King Jadeite marked $2 each, as is. For the life of me, I couldn't find anything wrong with the bowl. There was a yellow stain on the mug and while I was waiting for my change, Maddie whispered to me that she was able to scrape the yellow off. Score!
I found lots of little kitchen things from one seller. I am going to put a decal on the shaker. The aluminum cup next to it is marked "Smoothie Shaker". The sweet pink Humpty Dumpty cup will go in my box for my future niece or nephew. **Disclaimer: Hanna is NOT pregnant (yet) which I'm sure you all gathered since she is in Vegas.
I also bought these cute cake toppers for the future baby. I hope to collect enough that I can put them in a cute jar to display.
I bought the Doctor Doolittle's Garden book for my Halloween display. I actually found the Fiesta latte mug from Goodwill on my way home. It's a rare occasion that I find Fiesta at the thrift.
There is a seller at the flea that mainly sells small Ziplock bags full of vintage trinkets. He also has old tins full of dice, Monopoly game pieces, poker chips, etc.. I love buying stuff from him. He is super nice and always gives a good deal if you buy more than one thing. That is the way a flea market seller should be!
I got this sweet little guy from him too. It's my first pinecone gnome.
I know it looks like I got a lot but believe me, it took a lot of work to get it. I always pay extra to get into the flea early but unfortunately, they let the sellers in at the same time. So I spend a lot of time circling the market waiting for all of the goods to get unpacked.
Here's a fun story...as I was leaving, I ran into one of my estate sale friends. She just so happened to be with a fellow blogger, Evie from Evie's Haus! It's so fun to meet other bloggers and be recognized. Be sure to check out her blog. She loves all of the same amazing vintage things that we do, especially Pyrex!
And speaking of Pyrex, check out what I bought on Society 6
I mean, what Pyrex lover doesn't need a Balloons iPhone case & coffee mug?
Fun weekend & fun finds! Our seats at JT were AMAZING! If you follow me on Instagram, I took a photo from our seats just before the concert started (Shara, are you conscious yet?). Brian got some awesome videos that I am going to have Maddie upload onto You Tube. They are that good. 3 solid hours of singing and dancing from my absolute favorite performer ever (or as Hanna calls him, my boyfriend). I will post a link when the videos are up.
