Ok, I’m in love…again…
What can I say? I got a lot of love to give…but this time it’s the real thing. Big puffy pink hearts and X’s and O’s…with an antique market.
Yes, a whole flea market this time, I found my spot, my people, my happy place!
The best part was, I got to meet up with one of my favorite blogging buddies, Allison from The Golden Sycamore, and ooh and ahhh over all the amazing stuff together. Like Mr. Serious above, or how about some old wind mill pieces? There was just too much goodness to look at (and buy) I really should have rented a u-haul, or you know, not, because the Mr. just would not understand.
A) completely redo everything in my house to include this fun table and chairs
B) buy a 2nd home to decorate….
The Mr. would like to add option C) I’m never allowed to go back to the flea market again.
Ok, so we will leave the chairs there and just dream about a white washed paneled cottagey dining room featuring them.
I’m still dreaming about this sweet little dresser too, I just love the details and the rustic finish.
Allison luckily had made the road trip over to the Allegan Antique Flea Market before and showed me the ropes. This flea market is huge and has over 700 booths of goodness. I’m so glad I had her with me to navigate and help me negotiate too, she is a pro. I’m horrible at haggling, but got my courage up and did it anyways. I even pulled the whole walk away thing and still scored. The Mr. was so proud, although he didn’t fully understand why I paid $15 for a rusty letter “J” to begin with…
I think I might be going back for one of these babies, they are just too cool. Did I say going back? Oh, yeah this flea market goes on the last Sunday of every month all summer. I can’t wait for the next one, I have a list of things that I want to find this time (including eating some funnel cake) and I will be a girl on a mission. If you live in Michigan and want to check it out, you can find more info here.
Next week I’ll be sharing my favorite finds and where they are hanging out in my house.
Oh but I have to quick share this photo of the cute whale Allison picked up for me when she got to go down to Lucketts Antique Market. How sweet is that? I totally love him too (I know it’s a problem) and he looks right at home on our bookshelves. Such a cute reminder of our fun day!
Be sure to stop by to see Allison at The Golden Sycamore and read more about our adventures. She picked up some really unique pieces and I can’t wait to see what she does with them!
