On Sunday my friend Pam and I went to the Todd Farm Flea Market in Rowley, Mass. It's lots of fun. Hundreds of outdoor booths and a huge barn filled with dusty treasures. Whether you go with a little money or a lot there's lots for everyone to see and buy. My son Ronan loves it. I throw a $10 spot at him and tell him he can buy whatever he wants. Keeps him plenty occupied so I can poke around at the things I like.
I was thinking of stretching this coffee bean bag over a canvas, tacking it down and putting on the wall in the kitchen. Kind of funky. Got it for a buck!
Not vintage, but you know how you need a bungie cord and can never find one? Or they are at least $5.99 in the stores? I scored them for two and three dollars each and 10ft. of rope for $1.00. Hey, good to leave in the car, I figure.
and for another two and three bucks, a book of houseplans. I was drawn to the handpainted touches and plantings and walkways full of curb appeal. The decorative painting book is a few years old and some of the techniques are a little dated, but many others are classics. A good library addition!
I can never seem to leave a flea market without a little bit of sparkly something. It's fairly new costume jewelry but for $15 I thought it would be a pretty way to dress up an outfit. I love the ruby red color and the nod to the royal jewels. 'Cause that's me, after all ; )
