Flea Market and Etsy Finds and Where They Are Now

Hey guys!  Hope you are all great!!


I was able to go to the Nashville Flea Market this weekend and despite the rain and not many vendors, I still was able to find a few new treasures.


Several of the things I found will go into my etsy shop, but of course, some will make there home here in my house.






I know I am going a little crazy with the number 9, but I just can’t help myself when I find one.  I love the size of this one!  For now, it is tucked nicely under my kitchen cabinet.



box 5



Be still my heart…I found this beautiful blue/green chest that is perfect to hold our school books in the dining room.  All of our stuff just hides away in here so nicely. 



carrier 5



This great wooden carrier was a last minute find.  Love it holding my beautiful blue bottles.  But, alas, it is headed for my Etsy Shop.  I just really don’t need anymore totes. 



carrier 9



Last, but not least, I bought my beautiful new European Grain Sack table runner from a gorgeous etsy shop, Jamie Kay



carrier 7



I love this runner on my table and love the beautiful New Zealand shop I bought it from.


Speaking of shops…I am really trying to head in a new direction with my shop.  I would love to be able to show you how you might could use some of the items that will be for sale.   I know that presentation is huge and I want to present my items well.  I want to give you good ideas that you could use in your home.  


I have so much fun shopping with all of you in mind and setting things up that I think you might like.  I hope you will enjoy some of the new things I am doing.


Ok, friends, I am off to see who wins America’s Next Great Baker.  Can I just tell you how much I want one of those cakes?  I am such a dessert freak.


Have a great rest of your night, friends.

Hi Amy!

You found such amazing things at the Flea Market! That chest is gorgeous and I love the wooden carrier, too. And I personally think you should have as many "9's" as you like! The one you showed in your kitchen is SO cute! :)
{Oh, and I must add that }the runner looks so lovely on your dark wood table!}

I hope you have a good night!


Blondie's Journal said... really found some great things in Nashville! I just love the blue chest and the carrier. You can do so much with these two pieces. The table runner is beautiful!

We are going to Nashville this spring. Is the flea market year round?

Some "great finds" indeed. I just love it when I find something that appeals to me and has a your blue cabinet!!! I think showing people how to use the items from your shop in their own home is wonderful. Many people like something...but are clueless in how to work it into their own home decor.That's one reason I became interested in blogging...sharing ideas! Thanks for these lovely photos of your home!
P.S. That blue's a keeper!!!

First of all, I'm jealous that you can shop a flea market this time of year. I would have a hard time selling the items you found. Especially love that blue box!!

Tried to post this earlier, but poof.

I love your treasures. You have such a skilled eye for the score.

I mentioned to my mom recently that I wanted a wooden carrier like that or a tool box like the kind you use. She found one in her tool shed and gave it to me. Wooohooo!

Now, to use it like you would and not do something stupid with it.
