As I mentioned in my last post, Isabel and I went to the Polk County Flea Market yesterday. We got there pretty early while a lot of the dealers were still setting up so we could get first pick at the goods. I have been going to this monthly flea market for several months now and I try really hard not to miss it as I always find some good stuff at good prices. Here's a picture of the treasures I found.
Two big suitcases, neat old frame from the forties, basket with handle, four cowboy hats, old coin purse, glass door knob, roses hanky and roses postcard. I got the little wire mannequin and hooked rug at an antique mall we stopped at on our way home.
Also at the flea, I found some vintage rick rack and a cute pottery dish,
A little wood box, a wood spool, old glass bottle, rhinestone pin, old watch and cute little mini deck of cards.
One dealer had a tin of old keys so I asked if she could make me a deal on all of them which she did. I forgot to take a picture of the hash browns and gravy, but they were delicious! Overall, it was a very fun day.
One thing that was very funny was the fact that I mentioned to Isabel that I need to do a better job at keeping my excitement in check as I'm sure I won't get as good a price for something if I'm squealing, "Oh, how cute is this?" So sure enough, I picked up the little deck of cards and said, "these are so cute!" I then quickly corrected myself and said, "oh, they're okay." Isabel and I burst out laughing. I'm sure everyone thought we were crazy. But then, Isabel pointed at this really weird doll head and we continued our laugh fest. I guess you'd have to be there, but it really was hysterical.
To finish I just wanted to share a picture of these chairs that I got from my sweet friend, Andrea. Aren't they cute? They really do need to be recovered, or slipcovered or something. Not sure what I will do. Any suggestions? You can click on the picture to see the fabric better.
Well, gotta run! Looks like it might be a really nice day weatherwise. Yesterday was gorgeous, but this is Oregon afterall.
