Flea Market Fun



This weekend we hit up a local flea market. We had a great time looking around at all the treasures being sold. You know what they say - "Someones junk is another ones treasure". Jimmy and I had a blast strolling the endless isles of various items.


This was the coolest blue bicycle. I never see banana seats anymore.


A rubber duck for everyone.


Old books make great decorative pieces.


This vintage tub is perfect for outdoor parties.


The sling shoulder strap of my new purse worked out perfectly.


I love this retro door that we spotted at an open house later that day.

  1. I love your purse!! Oh how I love flea markets. This looks like so much fun. I went to some last week. I wish I took pictures! It's amazing to see what people will get rid or and even more amazing to see what people will actually buy!
