FLEA MARKET WHITES

I was a lucky girl last Friday! Mr. OTM gave me the DAY OFF and he tended the shop while I went junk huntin. The weather was wonderful. We got a much need break from this volcanic heat we've been having and I couldn't wait to get outside and enjoy the day.
After a hanging a load of laundry on the line~ I headed out to the flea market !
Here's what I found....

I stood there and kept trying to figure out how many of these old finials I wanted. Go with odd numbers they always say...okay 3, 5 how bout 9?
I just bought um all...12. Turns out "they" aren't always right! lol!


This lamp base needed a new cord...desperatly~ BUT I loved the chippy look! I put it in my booth Friday night and it's already sold. I had a feeling about that one.


This old clock face was my SUPER MOST BESTEST FAVORITE FIND of the day. It's an old Elgin face and it's GLASS! And are you ready for the price??? I really shouldn't say. I mean it's just not proper really is it? Too brag and such?
FIVE BUCKS!!!
I know!!
I am not kidding!
I gave the guy a hug.
He called security.

These old ceiling tin panels were another great find and in super condition.
I have a feeling we'll see these around town alot because the price was right and alot of dealers grabbed these up.
A side note~ the guy that I bought the $5.00 clock face from (there it is in your face again...how rude...somebody stop me) bought up the rest of um.






And finally~ if there is a chippy little old primitive shabby table I will stop dead in my tracks and scoop it up. I can't pass um up. They go right along with old scales, things with drawers, wire baskets, stools.........!
Hop on over to Faded Charm for White Wednesday and take a peek at all the GREAT WHITE stuff on display!
Cheers!

I do love that little chippy table. I have a weakness for tables. Maybe I should just start staking them atop of each other for neat displays...

Happy WW!

A cat fight for sure Beth, you have great taste too. When my girlfriend went shopping together we had to be good and try not to beat each other to the best finds, although I told her, her pillows just might come home with me.

Rebecca said...
