My Vintage Finds.

This weekend, Ty had a Charity Bike Ride with his MC club. So we made the trip back to Massachusetts, again. 
While he was riding his motorcycle around all day, Scarlett and I packed up 
our things and went on an all day flea market trip. We also stopped at a town tag sale and antique shop. 
As we are cleaning out our house and getting rid of old things, Ty is ever so happy that I am filling it
back up with new finds. Haha. I found some great stuff! I have a wee bit of an addiction to flea markets, antiques & thrifting.  
We came home with a trunk packed with goodies! Proof that not everything good is expensive.
 Vintage Plates & mugs:
I have been looking around the web & Etsy. A set of 4 vintage plates goes 
for as much as $30.00!! I found all 20 of these plates & 3 vintage mugs for
$6.00 at a tag sale. Ohhh la la. 

 I searched the web to find out what kind of vintage mugs these were. I 
picked these two mugs up simply because they were too cute & I thought Scarlett would 
love to play with them. They are plastic, but must be worth more than $5.00,
 (which is what I got them both for). If anyone knows anything about them, let me know.

 I saw this very Vintage Magic Krispy Kan Tin on Etsy for almost $30. I 
thrifted this at a town tag sale for $5.00! How cute?!

 These ottomans can be pretty expensive whether they are vintage or new.
I'd say if I bought this mid-century stool at a antique shop, I'd pay over $50.00.
What did I find this for? For free!! At the end of flea markets, you'd be surprised 
what you can find for free. A little baking soda and it shines like new.

 Green & Tan Leather Tote: 
Great for a carry on or just to pack. I bought for 50 cents!

 Vintage Step stool Chairs can range from $70.00 up. 
Although it had a bit of a rip in it, I thought this turquoise one, had character.
 I grabbed it for $5.00. Great to put plants on. 

 Vintage Napkins:
50 cents.

Vintage oval wooden Bowl:
Look at the price of these Large Wooden Vintage Bowls HERE.
I paid $3.00 for mine at an antique sale. 

Bookcase:
I needed a bookcase for Scarlett's growing collection of books. 
I bought this wooden shelf at the flea market for $15.00. 

Suede moccasins in Scarlett's Size:
Free!


I also bought 2 purses, 3 pairs of vintage shoes, vintage linens, & a large bunny rocker
all for $30.00. (Photos of those in future posts) I found all of my wedding centerpieces for 
$25.00. I'd say it was a very successful trip.

PS. This Wednesday, My first ever Group Giveaway with some great prizes!!

  4. I can't believe that turquoise step stool was $5. That color is one of the hardest ones to find.

  13. The plates with the white flowers look eerily familiar. I think my mom had those or something similar when I was a kid. Also, my grandmother had a step stool like that one. I have a pic of me sitting on it in her kitchen.
