FLEA MARKET FINDS....

Good Monday Morning darlings, sorry about not posting my outfits for the 30 for 30 but I will definitely get to Inspiration Monday at Two Birds today which will leave me only 5 outfits behind.  Anyway, I ended up going to the Berlin flea Mart yesterday with Rob and the pups.  We had a good time and left before the heat hit the black top we were walking on.  Berlin Mart is in a huge outdoor/indoor flea market that has a ton of goodies.  Here are my purchases inspired by yesterday's Country Living Magazine post.  This is my front porch...small but covered by an overhang so anything I put out there stays protected from the rain and snow. The green vintage table was a curbside pick, the dairy crate I snagged at GW for $1.99 and the plant from a yard sale 2 weeks ago $2.00. The the metal dress form in the corner was Berlin Mart for $10.00.  I have been looking for one of these for months...finally found her. 

I love how industrial she looks.  $10.00

She has tattered pieces of material hanging from her and a bunch of button snaps...

I found these hands from 1990 for 3 bucks.  I will use them to display and store jewelry...cute eh? They need a good cleanin...

I had to have this framed paint by numbers painting for $2.00.  Now I have 2.  Need 2 more to make a small wall gallery as shown in the Country living mag photo.

I found these 1940's Girls Magazines for $1.00 each and man are they filled with inspirational and frame able photos. 


1946 and only 10cents.  Almost 70 years later and it was only a $1.00. 


How fabulous is this Halloween hot dog add in the October issue.  Who doesn't love October and hot dogs...???

How about this vintage ice cream table for.....are you sitting down?   3 BUCKS.  SO EXCITED... I am going to leave this out front and add some mismatched colorful chairs to it.  If I can find an umbrella to match, I will add that too.  Maybe I will sell freeze pops  and hot dogs out there all summer if I don't get that job I interviewed for.   Fun....!!!  {yelling} Get your hot dogs here, Get your hot dogs here, just $1.00.  Freeze pops would be .25Cents. lol

I have never heard of this magazine before but it seems to be some type of college issued mag. for girls....

ok I am so going to be looking for a pair of vintage roller skates to post an in just like these....fun.!  Hope you found some inspiration.  I will post the porch when I finish making it adorable... lots of love, dawn xoxo
