Short for two reasons.
One: we picked up a nail in a tire and had to drive 45 miles back home.
Two: the oppressive heat saps all my junkin' juice right out my pores.
Fell in lust with this round copper pot because of the verdigris.
You can tell it once had a base, but it would be great to string it by wire from the holes left in it.
You know you may find a bargain when -
When tables wobble but they don't fall down.
Small blue table in need of a makeover.
There is not ONE tight joint anywhere.
Major surgery may be necessary.
When the temps rise above 100F and no one bakes cookies.
A whole bag of copper cookie cutters.
When wire planters need new cocomats.
When someone paints who shouldn't.
(You have to admit the kitty is too cute to leave behind. Imagine a whole wall of bad art.)
When a craft is no longer popular.
I used to candlewick in the early 1980's.
Another kitty I could not pass by.
When a seller hates rust.
A double bike basket.
A rusty green tackle box.
When an old ladder is just an old, beat-up ladder.
This one has great patina and a couple of very clever make-do's.
When everyone yells, "That's the coolest thing at the flea market today!"
We love our state flag in South Carolina.
Everyone has palmetto tree/crescent moon clothing, shoes, decor, dishes, totes, ties, and on and on.
I spied this huge tree beside a truck.
I was surprised no one had purchased it.
So I did.
Then everyone wanted one.
Made by the artist from parts of her barn.
I plan to enjoy it for awhile and then sell it.
Because quite simply it IS the Coolest thing!!!
Next week I will try not to shop except in the attic and shed.
Both spaces are packed with treasures.
Of course if the perfect estate sale arises, I will be hoofing it down the road.
Be sure to get out of my way.
