More of the flea market

Pin It Now!

When I was at the flea market last Sunday I came upon this gorgeous booth! Look at these beautiful vintage ornaments.

Through talking with the dealer I found out she has a website. It called Grey Garden Collections.

Later I came across another booth of beautiful things....
and found out they have a blog called The Tattered House.
You've seen Marilyn's booth many times on my blog....
It's always beautiful! I took a lot of pictures here...



Look at the gorgeous colors at this booth....
Here's Eddie showing us some vintage Christmas tablecloths...

I loved this big old soup tureen...

and this set of twin beds, and that rose chandelier. There were so many beautiful things at this flea market!Here's the group that spent the morning with Eddie. He was showing us some glassware here...
I'll share what I bought at the flea market for my Show and Tell Friday post, which I'll have up later in the day on Thursday. I spent less than $40 and I came home with some really great things! I had so much fun I want to go back next month!!!

Dear Miss Cindy,
Whew, I just finished catching up on 2 weeks worth of your blog. To sum it up in its entirety in two words... simply elegant. I truly appreciate your talent and eye for staging and decorating, as well as the awesome photos you take when you're all done. But mostly, your willingness to share so much of you with us. Your humble, sweet spirit shine brightly. Happy Birthday to Lauren! I loved the photo series of her. She's a lucky girl to have you for her mom, as I'm certain she's well aware of that fact.

Did I miss anything concerning the remake of her room? Or maybe she doesn't want to share it with the world? Anyhow, I've been trying to keep up, but maybe I missed it? I can't wait to see it.

Hugs,
Penny Sue

Oooh, love that soup tureen! I like those glass bottles. Looks like a little bling made into initials on those. Very clever and probably easy enough to do at home.

Linda said...

Oh so pretty, I would have been so happy even if it was cold! Eddie is coming to Atlanta In Jan.

Jenglamgirl said...

Hi Cindy,
I can't wait to see what you bought. There were so many things in the pictures that I would have a hard time narrowing down my favorites.

I love that chandelier and the set of beds. It looks a little chilly where you are as well. Glad to see its not only in our neck of the woods!

Glenda/MidSouth said...

Would love to have been there. I may try the big flea market here next Spring again. Years ago it use to be a good one, but quit going long time ago - to much imported, new "stuff"
Drop by - I am having a giveaway.

Wow! What an incredible flea market. I so miss good flea markets. Here in our area of Germany people only seem to want to sell their junk...and for a fortune!

You have a truly inspirational blog. Absolutely beautiful ideas. I'm looking forward to reading more!
