Flea Market Finds

My friend, Tracie, and I went to some of our local flea markets today. Some were good, some were bad. However, I found all sorts of goodies. You wouldn't believe what you find in some of those scary look'n stores but if you are willing to get pass the nasty grungy appearance and the funky can get some good deals. I have friends that think I'm insane and would NEVER step foot into a flea market. They are the same friends when they come over to my house want to know where I find everything. That's why you treasure a good buddy who loves hunting down good deals as much as you do. Part of the excitement is finding something you really like cheap. Tracie found some cool stuff too. She has a beautiful home and almost everything comes from antique shops, flea markets, or garage sales. That's why she's the perfect flea market, garage sale'n, antique shopp'n buddy.

These are my deals of the day ~

Two buckets for $12.00 that I'm going to use for house plants against my fireplace.

6 Antique Christmas Angels for $6.00. We decorate for Christmas in a retro 1940's theme. They will look perfect this upcoming Holiday Season.

A small Christmas bucket .50 cents that I'm going to use to hold utensils for Christmas brunch. Christmas Eve dinner is a our traditional china and the works. Christmas brunch is more relaxed and cutesy decor. I have the perfect Christmas plates that will match perfectly with this bucket. And a cute pillow I'll use on my front porch rocking chair during the holiday.

Christmas muffin holder for $1.25 that will look cute in my kitchen during Christmas time.

Cute little scarecrow for fall for $1.00.
Check out my frog candle holder that I paid $1.00 for.

I've been wanting two hurricane lamps to place over my antique candle holders. It's very traditional and looks awesome when I'm jazzing up my table. I paid $2.00 for both.
My favorite find today.... (drum roll) fourth of July pillow!!! I was looking for a uncle Sam doll to put on my front porch rocking chair but came across this cute patriotic pillow. I picked it up for only $6.00. It'll look perfect on my rocker.

GRAND TOTAL: $29.75 Woohoo!!!

Hey! Nice stuff, I like the patriotic pillow. And those planters are neat too. My hubby is a fun guy, his 2nd fave team is LSU, 1st is AL! :)
