My friend Marilyn and I got there early and yes it is true at flea markets - the early bird gets the worm. The first thing I saw was this wonderful old metal cart with the flowers sign. The vendor, Ruffles and Lace, had some fabulous rusty garden items and I did not hesitate to make an offer as I knew the charming cart would sell quickly.
This delightful sign set the tone for the marketplace and we were off and running after my first purchase of the day.
This sign kind of sums up how I feel about using old treasurers in my garden. Marilyn found a fabulous old metal plant stand for her garden at a great price. She is a photographer and was looking for props for her photography and with so many treasures we kept forgetting what we originally came to buy!
Far Away Hood was a fun shop run by a charming Mother and Daughter team who were using power tools like pros making charming signs to order.
You could buy already made signs or pick out an old piece of painted barn wood in all sizes along with cuts outs made out of old metal and these talented ladies would make your custom sign on the spot.
Just a few of the many metal cut outs available - really something for everyone!
Marilyn had them make a custom Jardin sign with a dragon fly - by now she was beginning to get hooked on this "junking" thing.
Some of the cute custom signs. I could not resist buying one of the metal bicycles, a dragon fly, heart, and oh - did I say a flower - I love rusty metal and could not resist even though I had to budget my money since I spent most of it on the metal cart first thing in the morning!
Another adorable shop in a vintage travel trailer.
Petticoats and Parasols - how adorable!
Lots of vintage items. The tricycle would be fun in a garden.
Marilyn found a wonderful old wood box with chippy yellow patina to us as a light box for her photography and I forgot to take a photo of it for you. With so much eye candy we were in junk heaven!
