I've been meaning to post this for awhile ~ just haven't had the time.
Last Sat. I went to my first flea market for the season. I've been itching to go after seeing every one's wonderful finds here in blogland.
I always seem to get scheduled to work on Sat. nights, so I have to stick close to home ~ and believe me there are not many flea markets close to home.
The flea market I went to only has them the first Sat. of every month. I jumped into the car as soon as I got up ~ and believe me that wasn't fast enough.
I wanted to enjoy it for as long as I could.
This is where the flea market was held ~ M. Schettl
This truly is an out of mall experience!
They have statue's and displays all through the grounds and their buildings are packed with unusual finds.
I thought these were cool ~ the bottle trees ~ even the gazebo had colorful bottles all over it.
This gazebo was filled with old wine barrels ~ can you see the pink flamingo in the background?
Some of the vendors had their wares displayed on old wagons that are around the property.
I was so excited to get this old wash tub for $5.00. I'm going to put potted geraniums in it, and when we have cookouts I can remove the plants and fill it with ice and beverages.
I got an old sewing rocker ~ I love the dark aged wood!
Just some small finds ~ the mirror is for my daughter she is a beautician and she loves old hand mirrors.
I love old tins and bottles!
This is a close-up of the pig jar I got, there is a slot in the top, and the lid says this is a piggy bank bottle.
I believe it had syrup in it at one time. I have another piggy bank bottle that is in the shape of a mans face and says Lucky Joe's Mustard. I don't see these to often and they are kinda pricey ~ If anyone knows anything about these bottles I sure would like to know any info they might have.
Oh I can't wait till the next flea market!
Today I went barn picking, I'll try to show you some pic's tomorrow.
It's getting late and I have to read the paper before I hit the hay, otherwise it will be old news!
Until next time!
