What did I end up purchasing? I am afraid it is not overtly exciting.
I did find my petticoat. Of sorts. More like a tulle slip. This grey-green find was $8. I would never really wear it like this. But I wanted to show what it looked like. And it is sheer. Key in adding a dress underneath for this photo. I will wear it under dresses in the wintertime.
I also found this really cool army green table runner. I love the white design on it.
And I found this neat vintage fabric. It used to be a skirt of a woman in a village in Thailand.
I am going to combine them into one giant pillow. It will look something like this. Can you picture it?
I also purchased the coolest piece of furniture. At a fantastic price. The couple we purchased it from were some of the nicest people I have ever met. I am bummed, because I have forgotten the name of their shop. They were so sweet. They were dressed up in cool vintage clothes. The guy helped my husband wheel the piece of furniture all the way to our car. He would not accept a tip. Just really great, good people. I hope their shop does well.
We got it home. The piece of furniture would not fit anywhere. Bummer! But I know a family member who is going to have an awesome Christmas present!
This is just a sneak peak. I know they read this blog. I do not want them to see the whole thing.
And we ate burritos at the place near the vintage clothes. I know they do not look fantastic, but I had to share. Sorry, I took a bite of each before I remembered I was supposed to take a photo. The chicken one was very dry. But the bean burrito was so good. I have not stopped thinking about it. I am a bean burrito junkie. And this one was the best one I have ever had. It has been a month and I still cannot stop thinking about it. If you head to the flea market, I suggest you try a bean burrito! Yum!
So, that completes my day. It was very hot. Super fun. And exhausting.
What have been your best finds at the flea market? Do you like to dig through junk as much as I do?
