Flea Mkt For Mother's Day

My hubby decided he would take me to a flea market for Mother's Day. It was on Saturday and I was so excited. On our way this is what we saw, as it had rained the night before. The clouds cleared and I was hopeful for some great deals.
I found this cute sign for my friend Kathy!.......50 cents

I found these things for my friend Kelli's new photo studio!............50 cents each

Kathy had called and said she found sets of drapes for $3.99. I had to check them out and here they are!!! Can we say steal??? It was 2 panels and tiebacks for $3.99. The valances were $1.99. I bought 2 different sets. All together $21.00 for new and not used! These were from Gabes later in the day.

Back to the flea market.........
My find of the day!!!
(insert happy music here)
I spotted these boxes from far away. Ya know one of those times you want to break and run but don't because you want a better deal!! So I strolled up and checked the tag. It said $12.00 for 5 boxes!!! Yes a very good deal but I wanted more!

So, I casually said "take any less?" He said "Oh what does she have on them? I'll take $8". Couldn't get the money out fast enough! I love them!

Well, after everything I brought home, having a yard sale today. Wish me luck!!!!


  1. Wow Crystal, you scored with those awesome finds! Don't you just love a successful hunt???

  2. what a fun way to spend MD! Love those toile boxes...I'd have snatched them too...isn't if fun to re-discover all of our forgotten treasures?!
    Thanks so much for coming by and your sweet words!

  3. Woho, I love a great bargain and you certainly have lots of them. Now I can't wait to see what you do with them, that is my favorite part. I want to thank you for your wonderful comments for receiving the award I sent you. It really is the interaction between bloggers like you that makes blogger even better. Have a wonderful week.

  4. I love the boxes!!! You got a great deal on everything. I wish we had a flea market where I live. Thanks for visiting my blog & leaving me a comment.

  5. I am so glad you love my old shop. Funny thing, my daughter was only 3 months old and her brother was 1 1/2 when I bought my first shop and they went to work with me 2 times a week. The shop I showed I posted about my youngest son was 6 months old and learned to walk there and I took all three kids to work. You may not believe it but I broke more china in my shop moving things around than my kids and they went to work with me all summer.
