Sunday Flea Market Finds

I was able to get out to the flea markets today, finally after the cold winter months. It turned into a beautiful day but the morning start at 6 am was a little chilly at 22 degrees. BRRRR!

Anyway, I went to one of my favorite fleas and found lots of treasures to paint. I was able to find 3 pairs of baby shoes, 2 sifters, 2 milk bottles, 3 bundt pans, 7 spice tins, 7 silver soup spoons, 2 alumiunum heart shaped pans, a tall wood bowl, a pineapple bowl, a vintage coffee can, a rolling pin, an aluminum coffee pot, a orphan glass cake plate and a 4 sided grater. I can't wait til I can get things washed up, primed and ready to paint. New "junque" always gets my creative spark lit! The best thing is that I only spent around $30 for all my treasures.


I can't wait for warmer spring mornings as more vendors will be set up and of course that means more treasures! So if you are ever in the flea markets in the Mid-Atlantic area, lookout for a frantic woman pulling her granny cart...I may just mow you down to get to that special treasure first!


  1. So glad to see you got to do something today to make you happy. Guess it gave you a break from frettin' over the kitchen floor.

  2. Wow Dee, you did awesome today!! Good for you on being able to get out and about and not worry about orders!! By the way, I won' be mailing that desk and chair to!!

  3. Great stash Dee! Ours haven't started yet, but can't wait till they do! Looking forward to seeing what you do with all your new found treasures!

  4. Pat,

    Thanks...junque hunting is sooo much fun. I can't wait til it's warmer though as more vendors will be there to purchase from.

  5. B,

    Thanks. I went really early so much of the time I spent was "sleep time". Aww...come on...I need a new desk and chair. It is very nice and such a find. Lucky you!

  6. Jody,

    Thanks! Hopefully I'll get most of it cleaned up today and primed. That way when inspiration strikes, I can go with the flow.

  7. You have inspired me to think outside the box more! Kat S.

  8. Kat,

    You should see some of the other things I have painted on! It's always fun to think outside your comfort zone.
