My Top Ten List Of Flea Market Finds For 2012

My Top Ten List of Flea Market Finds for 2012.
Today, I will be sharing just two, check back with me later for more!

Y'all know me...I would much rather head to a flea market than to a mall so I thought I would give you the list I take with me

when I head out to hunt and gather.

Let's see what's on my list....

1. Architectural Pieces. Things like garden gates, mantels, old doors and windows. These things never get boring...I always find new uses for anything unique. I sold this garden gate for wedding...what a charming item to use for displaying black and white pics of the couple.

2. Anything Galvanized. Buckets, bins and old oil cans take on new life as light fixtures, planters and shelves. It a great way to add a touch of industrial to your home.

Oh, Yes! I love a shabby gate and the galvanized....well who can go wrong there, either?

What I really want is the sign in your shop that says, "Because Nice Matters." I'm living with a teenager...

Happy Friday!

I am new blogger and "treasure hunter" so I REALLY appreciate the tips you are giving!!! Because I still don't have the "eye" and the vision people like you have!
I love the gate, what a great idea, to use it for a wedding!

Linda, I love the rust and galvanized too. My girlfriend that is doing the Flea with me is bringing all old rusty buckets, garden tools, kerosene and oil cans, It will make for a nice mix of shabby and rusty!

Hi just popping over from Sherry's Back 2 Vintage. I love that you called us (women) hunters and gatherers. It's what we do best. Woman are naturals at it. Your post caught my eye. I like your two top picks for 2012. I've actually been looking for a gate. I wanted to use it for growing string beans. I'm your newest follower and I'll stop by again for the rest of your 2012 picks soon.~Ames
