Flea Market Fun!

Recently my mom and I spent the day at the Nashville Flea Market. We used to go quite often but this was our first trip in over three years! Life is crazy when you have triplets and it's oftentimes hard to make time and arrangements to do things with just the two of us. So, we were super excited about spending the day together!

I absolutely love going to the Flea Market! So many fun finds, but also complete and total randomness! Like, bins and bins of expired medicines, lotions and candy. So weird!?!?! Here are some of my favorite finds:

I absolutely fell in lurve with this guy's letters. He carves out the letters from wood and then covers them with antique ceiling tiles. Gorge! I'm dying for this "M" to hang amongst framed photos in my gallery wall that I'm going to of these days.

More randomness. A wig booth. Just for giggles, I couldn't resist trying on this long blonde wig. I mean, could it be more opposite from my "real" look? The sales lady kept insisting that I looked "more beautiful" with the wig. My mom and I got a good laugh out of that! So funny!!!

I just had to scoop up this old canning jar for $3. It is so Southern and I can't wait to fill it up with sunflowers or fresh cut hydrangeas.

I also purchased this antique compote bowl for $15. The green color is fab! I had hoped to leave it out on the counter and use it as a fruit bowl and add a little funkiness and color to the kitchen, but it's a bit small for that. So, not sure what I'm going to do with it. It may only come out when we're entertaining to hold a dip or salsa, but I'm still happy with it!

And, of course, I couldn't leave the flea market without a complete random purchase! I saw this mirror sitting out on one of the tables and picked it up and looked at myself and I could literally see every single pore on my face 10x bigger! Whoa! And for a buck I couldn't resist! I've already had fun plucking my eyebrows with this little guy.
After the flea market we hit up a few more antique stores and had lunch at a local "Meat and Three". All in all, it was a perfect mother/daughter day!!!

  1. I NEED one of those letters! Seriously. Need. It. And, I love the glass bowl. I have a bunch of green Depression glass that I know I can’t get enough of that color!
