Flea Market Wednesday & My First Giveaway ~

The weatherman was predicting rain today so I wasn't terribly optimistic about going to the Wednesday Flea Market.... Not that I mind a few showers, but many sellers will avoid the travel and booth set up when showers are imminent...  

I decided to take the risk and drove to my very favorite weekday flea.. Only a handful of sellers were there displaying their goods but I did manage to find a few things... 

Let's take a peek...


Containers and a chair....


I loved this old box...


Old nails...


Wonderful graphics...


Knotty pine...


Great overall patina!! 
Probably end up in our wine closet 
since it is an old Scotch crate... 

Or possibly for magazines... 
I always need more magazine containers!


Wonderful old children's size chair....


Heavy duty oak with years of worth of patina...


Perfect for little guests that drop by for a visit...


Also a nice plant stand...
I also love little chairs to use as a step stool!


This old crock was not purchased today 
but thought I would share it with you... 
Old paint left to reveal a fabulous number 2.. 
the graphic leaves remind me of angel's wings!


Wonderful old basket that the seller told me was French...



Nice sturdy handles for carrying laundry...


I asked the seller "How do you know this basket is French?"
she showed me the bottom..
Notice the wood reinforcement on the bottom??

Interesting....
Now I know what to look for!

Perfect holding blankets in the family room...


It started to rain after I bought the basket, so I decided to call it a morning...
Total time at Flea Market Wednesday...
45 minutes!

NOW ONTO MY 1ST GIVEAWAY!!

My blog just reached a BIG milestone of 500 followers...

I love what you found at the market today. That is a good tip to know about baskets. I will be looking now too:) I have little chairs around a long bench in front of a sofa for my grandbaby loves when they come to visit. They love it. It makes them feel 'big'. lol
Thanks for sharing:)

I follow and how fun to have a Wednesday flea market, where are you?

Nancy said...

Wow, that was so neat to read about how to tell if the basket was/is French or not. Now I will know what to look for.
I like all of your finds! I have a little collection of vintage crates myself. They are great for storage and display.
I've always liked child sized chairs too...I like that you're using it as a little shelf with the crock and greenery.

I would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to win this old scale! I have wanted one for a long time!
I am a happy folower.

Have a great week and congrats on 500 followers!

dogsmom said...

For a chance at that scale I will follow you anywhere, well as long as there are thrifty stops along the way.
I enjoy shopping in less than perfect weather. I think it makes the vendors more open to haggling.
Do you think your child's chair may have been from a school house?

sarajane said...

Hi Marcy, Been reading your blog for a while but just joined as a follower because I am wild about that scale. I guess giveaways do work! love your unique style and especially that its not more dropcloth slipcovers/dried lavender/grainsack pillow which is lovely but you see it everywhere.

Jacqueline~Cabin and Cottage said...

You can also tell French baskets by the sturdy way they look and the color and patina. I broke out in a sweat the minute I saw it. None of these turn up in the New Mexico heartland so I'm going to have to find one east, west, or south. Did yours cost a little or a lot? I'm happy to be counted among your 500. Congrats on your beautiful blog!

Kimra said...

LOOOVE your flea market finds! I have yet to go to a flea market so I am totally jelly. I'm sooo excited about your giveaway too! Just moved into a new apartment with lots of empty space above the kitchen cupboards. The scale is so amazing and would fit perfectly. I can't believe you're giving it away!

Hi Marcy! I'm your newest follower - #598!!! I adore all things vintage and chippy and full of history. Your treasures are fabulous, and the tip about the basket is so interesting! I have a newer wicker basket that same shape, that I think I'm going to let sit outside all summer to "age" it! Thanks for the inspiration - and for this wonderful giveaway! It would look sooo good in my old farmhouse!

It is always a gamble going to a flea market when the weather is not great. Sometimes the risk pays off however as sellers are eager too sell to break even for the day.

Do you ever look around and wonder if any of the things that are modern today will be someone's treasure in years to come. Like maybe use a commodore 64 for a planter or something lol. An Atari book end.
3. I live in the land of free because of the brave.
Thanks for hosting this awesome giveaway.

Dearest Marcy ,

Blogger seems to have a problem with the thumbnail of your (our!) first photo that is not showing on the sidebar of other bloggers... To fix it do the following, as I managed to do and solve it right away (you do this for each new blog and the present one!):

Here we go!

To have the first picture of your blogpost showing as a thumbnail on other blogrolls, you go back into Edit post and click the HTML button, Scroll down until you find the HTML code for the first picture in your post. Within that code you will find, once or twice this:

- https://...googleusercontent.com.

You need to make a couple of modifications, this is what you want -

http://...ggpht.com....

To RECAP https becomes http:/ / and googleusercontent.com becomes ggpht.com

Lots of love,
Bea

que pena que no pueda participar vivo en espaƱa y estamos muy lejos pero me haria una ilusion tremenda tener algo asi y mas de donde proviene que tengo un especial interes por la vida americana...en fin decirte que tus compras me han parecido preciosas y yo me pregunto porque no hay esos mercadillos aqui en mi ciudad...encuentras unas cosas preciosas y sabes una cosa...que una caja de madera como la tuya la encuentras en tienda por 40 o 50 $ y eso es muy caro para mi....Un abrazo.
