Flea Market Booty

My sister and I went to a Flea Market over the Holiday weekend and I plundered a booty for sure.  There are always garage sales on the way to the Flea Market so we did a few slow down and drive byes but there were quite a few that just had too much laying on the yards we HAD to stop.  It was at these garage sales that I found my biggest bargains.  My first acquisition was an old mirror and pedestal.  Then a little bit farther on I scored a table and two white platters, one large and crackled and crazed and one small white one.  A few more miles down and I found an awesome bed that only needs a little WHITE paint and some repairs and it will be perfect for the shed. 

We finally made it to the Flea Market and boy was it HOT, upper 80's but that did not stop us, we were on a hunt for bargains and find them we did.  Ok, I am not going to tell prices, I hate to have anyone faint or see grown women cry but let's just say they were the steal of the day.  I was able to get my hands on 19 burlap sacks. 

AHHH, I could have just peed myself I was so excited, of course I could not let the vendor see me with any emotion.  And boy was he wishing he had had higher prices when I bought all but two of them.

Walk away Run, well I would have if they had not weighed a ton.  The last bargain was a bunch of linens, one pillowcase with crocheted edge and a monogrammed table runner.  I was so happy with the day.  Of course we had to carry our heavy bags back to the car, but I was walking on clouds just thinking of all the projects I can do with the burlap and linens.

Here is the my booty:  I will be celebrating this with Kathleen at Faded Charm for the 50th White Wednesday.


I want to thank all of the bloggers who have been posting their creative DIY projects, you have me hooked on burlap and now I am off to try and create something myself.  Thanks for stopping by.

  5. First, I am glad you posted the far away picture of the bed. You are able to see the size better. I really like the scroll and the curves on it. The sacks were a score for sure. Honestly though I am not so sure I ama fan of them only because they are so scratchy to the touch.....remember I said I like velvet? I am like a cat. But I am glad for you and felt very excited running away from the burlap guy with you....I LOVE THAT FEELING.
