A friend and I went to the January Flea in Nashville to see what we could find.   My friend Lisa had never been we and was pretty excited about going.   Climbing the "death hill" at the back entrance took the wind out of her sails but she wasn't down and out for long!  The weather was cool but sunny so not bad for huntin!
The months after the holiday aren't usually the best, a lot of the regular dealers don't come till it warms up a little but there's still plenty to see.   I didn't find a lot of bigger stuff, was looking for some small pieces of furniture but did come away with a few  things.  We had a lot of fun!

First, update for today,

Happy Valentines Day!

my vintage lock and heart planter

Before I show you what I got, here's a updated photo of my mantle without the garland, yep, finally put it away!  I'll leave it this way for a little bit longer, till I get the itch for change!

This moose was out on my front porch during Christmas but I've brought him in to sit in front of the fireplace.
He was hangin out at one of my favorite antiques malls, was marked $29, but was on sale for $20.00 and was begging to come home with me, what's a girl to do but bring the poor homeless thing home!

This chair I love,  got it for $35.00,  I love anything with cane!

I think the wood on this little stool is gorgeous!
It was  only $7.00!

This rusty tool box is one of my favorite things, it was $6.00

Isn't the inside fabulous, I was very excited when I opened  it and saw that it was turquoise!

This little enamel top table's top is painted to look like wood,  I haven't seen another one like it
It was on sale for $35.00

Love the worn paint on this child's chair, it was $5.00

This burlap coffee bag is huge and was $5.00

When I saw this part of a vintage gate,  I couldn't resist!  $3.00

For some reason I can't seem to leave these behind when I come accross them.  Have a small
collection,  this one was $3.00

This red and black chair was $8.00

I have a large collection of vintage tablecloths, got these 2 for $12.00 each

I think I did pretty good but am looking forward to the February Flea!

Happy Valentines Day

Till next time......

I'll be partying this week at

I love the barn door! That one is really neat! So what do you do with all of these things you buy? Do you keep them all, or do you end up reselling some?

Betsy said...

I think you did fantastic! Love all your awesome finds especially that tool box and the barn door. Thanks so much for sharing everything.

I will never forgive myself for not going to that flea market while my son was living in Nashville. You mantle looks great, and you made some fantastic finds. I love old toolboxes too, and enamel tables.

I think you had a good day of shopping bringing home some great items. I was puttering around in the attic the other day and saw one of my grandfather's metal tool boxes like yours except it didn't have a blue interior. I was wondering how to use it, so I will be interested to see what you do with yours. Thanks for coming to my party. Hope to see you next week! Happy Valentine's Day!
