Flea Markets

I have been for ages trying to get over to The White Elephant Flea Market  , I was there about 5 years ago as it is very close to my in laws house.  So this am I ventured that way, about an hour and 15 minutes, to see if they had anything I could use.  I saw lots of stuff.  SOme stuff I would LOVE to have and other stuff that would be nice to have.
There were keys and tape measures and mercury glass.  I actually found corbels that will soon grace my kitchen (I just need to paint them).  I did not find the writing table for Sam or myself
but did see some awesome things.

I left there and went to the unfinished wood furniture store.  This is where I found a night stand (yay) and a writers desk.  The night stand is painted blue (Sam loves it) and the desk is unfinished (which I will paint blue).  We are so happy in our home and he has waited so long for these items. I can't wait to show you the room, it is coming together so nicely.  There were also many plants that I am actually looking forward to putting in my yard, yay.  I am very excited that I got such great finds even though they were not all from the market.  Stay tuned for pictures of my finished room.


  1. I have to tell you that while walking through there I though of many of the ladies and the things they collect.

  2. Hi! Thanks for stopping by my blog. Will keep your mil in my thoughts and prayers.

    I would love to see pictures of your finished room. This is what I love about blogging! Seeing so many talented ladies and how they decorate.

    Take care!
