we walked in and headed to the atm since we both had no cash. what were we thinking? let’s blame it on the wine hangovers. at the atm we both looked at each other and fretted about how much money to take out – there was just too much great stuff we passed by, and we had only walked to the atm. uh oh.
the flea market had so much stuff, from the weird…
to the artistic…
to the diy-inspiring…
to the rustic industrial…
to the expensive.
(this booth had awesome stuff. and they knew it. i believe the rustic industrial shelving unit was almost $900?)
these huge mirrors were awesome. i wanted one for over my couch, but i didn’t take out $500 from the atm. annnd i wasn’t about to, boo.
i loved this bag. maybe because my favorite thing about lake michigan is that it’s not salty? i dislike salty ocean water. i’m bummed i didn’t pick one up.
holly bought this purdy mirrored tray for $17.
i almost bought this mirror on sale for $25. i stared at it for a good 5 minutes but ended up walking away. it was hard.
but i did buy this stool to serve as a side table next to the chair in my living room. i haven’t decided what i will do to the top yet (it’s a dirty, discolored white leather now). will let you know!
i also bought this little piano bench to use as a side table next to the couch. on sale for $10! this little lady will be given a makeover to turn into the beauty i know she is.
this was the third flea market i’ve been too, and i’m hooked! they can be hit or miss, but this one had more hits than misses. the next one i want to get to is the kane county flea market, i’ve heard it’s amazing. the only “problem” with flea markets are their low prices – it’s so hard to not buy everything!
i highly recommend going to the randolph street market the next time around – the next one is august 27 & 28. will you go? have you gone before? any others i should make it to? would you have bought that crazy fake grass and flower filled ottoman?
