BUT the best treasure was meeting Linda of A La Carte.
We have similar tastes in junkin'.
We shared pet stories and the grief when one passes.
We shared family stories and the strength we need for caring for family.
We shared stories of great finds and the tales of the one that got away.
Linda and I were both mauled by a nasty ghoul at the Madison Flea.
We did not mind since the many well-stocked booths caught our attention.
Halfway down the first aisle, we abandoned our "no cart" rule and started filling the cart with vintage finds.
We had lunch at Madison Produce.
Followed lunch with trips to sister antique malls, Fleas An' Tiques and The Junque Korner.
Both being fans of Chip and Joanna Gaines, we browsed through High Cotton - a blend of new and old vintage-y decor items.
I know Joanna would have bought quite a few things for their latest project.
While upstairs in Fleas An'Tiques, I found this adorable birdhouse constructed from an old silver tea pot and tin ceiling tiles.
The spout is the perch!
See Linda's post on our trip here: Simplify #4 and More!!
So on tomorrow's Friday Finds I will show off the items I bought from Linda.
Her downsizing is my downfall.
