Flea Market & Garage Sale Finds

Hello everyone! Today I thought I would show you some great finds that I found over the Memorial Day weekend. We went to a few Garage sales on Sunday, and on Monday we went to a HUGE Flea market just north of Howard City, MI, at Burlee Park. They host this flea market about 4 times during the warmer months, the first being on Memorial Day, and the last one the first Saturday in October. We usually go to the first one, as it has the most vendors, and there are literally thousands of people who come to it!

These first 5 photos are the items that I purchased at the Flea Market on Monday...
This is a fabulous header, and quite large and heavy...though it is newer, I still love it, and will be painting it white....just don't know yet as to where I will place it in the house.

This is a fabulous vintage lamp holder, made of a very heavy metal. I don't think I need to really do any painting on this, as I really love the off white, creamy color that it is. Now I need to also figure out where to place it in my home (preferably somewhere, where no one will hit their head on it, lol) ~ need to also find a nice larger candle to place on it.

These next 2 photos are of some pretty vintage favorite is the one with the pink in it. And the last photo is a lovely vintage tea the 4 hankies and the tea towel for just 50 cents each !

Next up are the items that I found on Sunday....2 lovely vintage hankies, which I am always on the hunt for, as I love to use them in my creations.

3 Vintage Rhinestone pins....these will be perfect to use on Christmas Stockings I will make in a few months for the Holiday season..

And lastly, a sweet little lamp, which as you can see, I have already painted just need to find the right small shade for it...either one that I can transform, or one that is already perfect.

I hope you enjoyed seeing some of the treasures that I found ~ I'm still thinking and deciding on what to do for my next a couple of ideas, now just need to get busy and get to work on it!

Wishing you all a wonderful rest of this week & upcoming weekend!

Until next time sweet friends!

Those are all treasures! I really like the soft look to the embroidery on your tea towel and the delicate pink crocheted flowers on the handkerchief. Lots of great finds!

Hi Brenda,
When I first saw your blog picture my first thought was...."that doesn't look like Brenda, she would paint it white!" And, I see that you are planning to do so.
Love all your finds.

Oh you found some great things Brenda! Love the lamp. I collect vintage hankies too. I have way too many. I take the pretty white ones, and make ornaments for my tree.
