I [heart] Davids · Flea Market

Flea Market

You are currently browsing the archive for the Flea Market category.

Saturday we spent a few hours at the Flea Market. Everybody got something they were really happy with. Dave got a bottle of some old 7-Up soft drink branded for the Cleveland Browns. He was delighted!

I got a waist apron for $10. I’ve been wanting a very traditional waist apron and I think this is perfect. I purchased it from a woman at the flea market that I used to patronize frequently. She’s really sweet and I like shopping from her. Check out the print – it’s a Floridian print with ships off the coast in the distance, pumas, tropical trees and oranges. I really love it.
Apparently, Claudia McGraw is from Black Mountain, North Carolina and had a storied history of making aprons for Eleanor Roosevelt. I don’t have any corroborating evidence of this, so if you have more free time than me, you can let us know if you can find any. 🙂
AND I found this amazing mixer from the 70s. It’s a J.C. Penney’s wall-mount mixer in brilliant orange. It opens to reveal the removable cord and beaters. Isn’t it beautiful?! It works, too. I checked.

Amber and Eric found a really pretty vase for cheap, and Kerri found the perfect necklace she’d been looking for. Yay!!!

I met Kerri at the flea market this morning and ended up making a bit of a day of it. I bought a few purses and a few records: T.S. Elliot Reads His Poems and Robert Frost Reads His Poems.
We ate lunch, along with a bottle of wine, at Vic’s in the City Market and then perused Father & Son Antiques. I bought a nice bright green Tupperware canister there.

Now that I think about it, we should have bought a case of these. I mean, how priceless can you get? They were only $1 apiece. They’re labeled as “Squeezable Mimi Balls” but we all know what they really are. The best part is the warning label on the box: Do not hit with bat!

Flea Market Sunday

I woke up with worse cold symptoms this morning, but I still had the energy to go shopping! We hit the flea market around noon today.

It was such a gorgeous day out, 70 degrees and sunny, not a cloud in the sky!

We found this guy selling all manner of iron antiques. He had a whole cart full of cast items.

Dave found a plant stand that he liked that was only $30. It seems fairly “cat proof” and will hold about 6 plants. It now has a new home in our sunny front room.
