Thought I would pop in to say hi and to show you some of my finds from last weekends flea market visit. Isabel and I went to our favorite monthly market, and as usual, neither of us came home empty handed. Here is just some of the things I brought home.
Several vintage flower pots.
More vintage glass lamps, a couple cute vintage bottles with black lids and two vintage Harry and David “pearserves” jars.
The black thing in the back is a velvet lined ring box, two vintage necklaces, misc. rhinestone bling, a silver tray with great roses detailing (didn’t capture that too well), a glass tray and a hand painted flowers mirror.
Vintage buttons and two pretty hankies.
Cute vintage gingham top.
Adorable vintage dress.
Vintage and antique lace and trim.
I also got a really cool old typewriter, a little metal chair and an antique child’s chair.
The second part of this post involves a project I’m working on for Farm Chicks. If you have been to Farm Chicks, have seen pictures of my booth, or have been reading my blog for awhile, you may already know that I sell vintage market carts with custom made liners. Well, this year is no exception. I have a huge pile of carts all ready to receive their pretty liners. I have been collecting/hoarding them for the past year and now it’s time to work my magic. ha ha Today I spent several hours coordinating and preparing the fabrics to make the liners. Here’s the stack of lovely fabrics I have put together.
It’s kind of hard to get a good idea on how the fabrics look, but I’ll share some pictures of the carts when they are completed so you can get a better idea. Or, you can click on this link to see some I’ve made before. If you are coming to Farm Chicks and would like a cart with a liner to tote your goodies around, make sure to come see me.
I’m off now to start cutting out the liners. I hope you all have a lovely weekend!
