Social Saturday – Flea Market!

Caution! Picture heavy post!
But lots of yummy things to look at. 🙂
Its been a relatively quiet week around here. That’s actually kind of nice!
Today we decided to take our first trip to the Nashville flea market with both boys in tow. The weather was fairly pleasant temp wise, but that was because storms were rolling through. Luckily they were sporadic, and we were able to stay dry under various shelters.
The boys were a dream! Well, there was a lot of telling the Little Man to keep up and watch where he was going, but he was a trooper during our 3 hour jaunt. The baby was absolutely fantastic! He is definitely going to be my thrifting buddy. He loved being outside and riding in the chest carrier. He even took naps in it!

We’d been there about an hour and two thunderstorms by the time this photo was taken, and Little Man had already scored a Little People boat for $1 and free balloon sword.
You never know what you’ll find at the flea market, and I’m always amazed at the things I see!
So I thought I would share a few with you.

Vintage fans in pristine condition and for outragous prices!
Yes, that tag says $550!
And there was an entire booth full of these.

Door knobs. LOTS of door knobs. I love perusing these!

A lot of naked lampshades. New trend?

 Is that a W or an M?
You know how I feel about monograms!

Now that is definitely an M!
But I didn’t bring it home with me…

I’m a big fan of old letterpress stamps. Aren’t they fun?

Old amber milk jugs. I don’t think I’ve seen them in this color before!

Purple glass galore!

A giant stone alligator… big hit with the toddler! He could probably have ridden its back!

I spotted this little boy’s shirt as we were walking around.
I am SOOOO making one of these for my Little Man!
It says “keep back 300 feet.”
And that was our flea market trip in a nutshell.
I hope you enjoyed the photos!
We did walk away with a bit more than the boat and balloon. A couple of vintage puzzles, books, zinc jar lids, marbles, and 5 yds of lace that only cost me $1!
How is your weekend shaping up?

I'm new to your blog, but I love it so far. I don't know where you are but you have much, much, much nicer flea markets than we have around here. I quit going because I got tired of looking a Avon products, tube socks, carpet sample squares and cheap purses and/or jewelry.
