On the third weekend of every month Nashville hosts one of my favorite events, the flea market. I wait all month for this glorious weekend of shopping. Normally, I come home empty handed. But because this time I went with my parents (they are experts at catching fleas) and had two extra sets of eyes, I cleaned up. Here are my spoils!
I've been collecting animal skulls and antlers for a bit. My plan is to have the entire wall behind my TV filled with them. I was lucky enough to find a large cow head and a full deer skull with antlers that were in my price range (i.e. Cheap). The guy who sold me the deer also threw in those set of antlers. Bonus.
I recently decided that I would collect those kitschy travel plates to hang in my kitchen. I already had a few from previous yardsales but didn't know exactly what to do with them. Enter the idea of collecting more and making a wall out of it. At the flea I picked up two state plates, Pennsylvania and West Virginia and one Amish country plate. That one makes me giggle.
And finally I got some more fiesta for my kitchen. I added four small bowls, one pink mug, and one large blue plate. These are the modern fiesta, but I actually use these daily and needed some more so I wasn't running the dishwasher every other day. I think these little bowls are the perfect size for a scoop of ice cream. Thats what I'll be putting in those.
Did anyone go flea marketing or thrifting this weekend? Find anything good? Share!
