Flea Market Finds – Shabby Storage for the Art Studio * Winner Chosen

Gail Hutchinson . . . you’re our random winner.  I’ll be sending an email to let you know.  Wishing all an amazing day!

As many of you know, I love old things and flea marketing. It was fun that my daughter and her friend wanted to join me. I had the lovely privilege of seeing a sweet friend as well.  A sweet friend and her sister run Whimsy (where I’ve taught before) and put on two amazing flea markets each month.  Find out more here and here.

So I found some goodies on our trip; a caddy I’ll use for tools, a semi rusty basket and an awesome jumbo mason jar with a cute blank chalkboard label that I titled bottoms and al,out filled it to the top.  I love it!  And so inexpensive.

How about you?  What’s a fun or great find you’ve acquired recently? I’d love to know.

Just for fun, I’d like to send a little package of vintage style buttons as well as some fun vintage stickers and some other surprises. Just make a comment here and I’ll pick a winner next Monday.

    I love all things old and vintage. My last flea market find was some buttons, also, I believe a girl can never have too many buttons.

    I haven’t been to a flea market or junking this year, but I love it! I think it is the thrill of the unknown, “what will I discover this trip?!” Sometimes it is something big, like a piece of furniture, but many times it is something small, like antique buttons (a favorite) or something lovely and chippy and shabby that I can repurpose for my bedroom or craft room. My last find was an antique comb, brush and mirror set that I display on my dresser. It isn’t really functional, but it is so pretty and makes me smile every time I see it, which I think is the whole point, I also love to get the story behind the item, when possible, and if it isn’t possible, then I find it fun to make up my own “backstory” -which is what I did with my comb/brush/mirror set. It is fun imagining who the owner was and what she went through and felt while using them.

    Hope you are well and happy these days, I miss hearing from you,
    Maureen
