More Flea Market Finds
The allure of the flea market on Sundays is too great...there I confessed! Is this the first step in a twelve step junk collectors anonymous program? If so, I won't go quietly....rather I will go kicking and screaming! LOL!
I was able to go to one of my favorite flea market again today and pick up a bunch of new goodies to paint. My stash is really building up and with the warmer weather I should be able to get most of it primed and painted soon. There were a ton of vendors and customers as the weather was ideal...not too hot, not too cool...just right.
Anyway, I was able to pick up 3 teapots, 2 rolling pins, 2 glass lanterns...one that was brand new still in the packaging, a grater, an abc plate, a small mirror, a nice scale, a 2 piece canister set, a heat diffuser, a dozen still in the box zinc lids, 2 sifters, 3 band aid tins, 2 small jugs/crocks, a pineapple shaped bowl and a shaker thingy. I know real technical terminology! I can't wait to get started painting this batch up as I already have some ideas of what I'm painting.
I also picked up some fantastic perennials and two Martha Washington geraniums from a local grower that sets up there. His prices are terrific and so far I haven't had a single perennial loss yet from last falls plantings.
Anyway, stay tuned for an update of some of the finished projects from my treasure hunting.
