New Goodies From The Flea Market

I went to the Kane County, IL Flea Market this weekend and found a few great things for the house!

Sideboard/Cupboard for the dining area


 The doors have chippy paint tin tiles on them


Lots of storage space inside...now I have an excuse to buy more vintage dishes and linens!


This was a bargain in my eyes in that the price was very fair...er cheap...for a handmade piece
that I didn't have to do a thing to.  The kitchen cabinet painting is all the makeover I can 
handle right now, with little Miss Maggie around (who just turned 9 months)!

Red Chair


My husband spotted the red chair (a flea market find first for him), it was
only $8!  A red chair was on my list...SCORE!!  He also spotted and purchased a 
Chicago White Sox painting...STRIKE!!  ;)

White Trunk


I didn't get the trunk at the Flea Market, but it is new (old) and I thought I would 
show it to you anyway.  I love the chippy paint finish, but I will probably touch
up the black scuff marks...they're not so pretty.

Paintings


These Paint By Number farm paintings were a steal at $10 each!  
I'll whitewash the gold on the frames.

I was pretty lucky to find the things I did, since the market was pretty light on dealers this month.  Perhaps sellers are waiting for warmer weather next month...come on spring!!!

Hi Stacey. Thanks for your visit. Glad I found you. I love your new and old pieces. I know what it's like having a 9 month old around. My youngest is nearly 3 and I'm just coming out of the fog now, hence the new blog. Hard to get much done at all.
Best Carolyn

dogsmom said...

Kane is one of the best markets, but I think given the unpredictable weather we've has this spring no one looked forward to even moving things around not knowing for sure if they'd have to be carried back home.
However I think you found some treasures.
I remember those paint by numbers from my own youth!

Heaven's Walk said...

Wow - you DID score today! Love that cabinet and that white chest!!! You're going to have a ball placing them and floofing them in your home! :)
