Flea Market/ Antique Store Finds

In my last post I talk about being a hoarder right? By the way the show Hoarders Buried Alive is on TLC not A&E. I watched last nights episode AND... one of those ladies was a fabric hoarder too. How ironic... LOL. Anyway, Steve and I were going to go to the Home and Garden show in Wooster, but instead decided since it was rainy we would go to the indoor flea market and antique store here in town. We go quite frequently because you never know what you might find. Most times we don't find anything, but yesterday we made a haul!!!!

Where am I gonna put all this stuff???? LOL

First of all I LOVE wooden spoons and some day Steve is going to make me a spoon rack... LOL The most expensive one was $3.00 but most were $1.00.

I need to make a few small repairs but I really liked how it was printed on paper and burnt around the edges. Sure I could've done it myself, but I would have never thought of it. LOL. $4.00

LOVE my boxes too. I like setting lights on top of boxes just to get them a little higher. $1.00 and $1.50.

Don't ask me what I'm going to do with another candle holder... LOL Steve wanted it because he liked it and wants to make some like it. On the bottom it says it was made in the historic town of Zoar here in Ohio. See the little dowel rod on the top you pull on it and it raises the candle holder up so you candle light and blow out your candle since the sides are all glass. Not sure if I'm going to paint this one or not.

Next is my pride and joy bargain of the day... Looks like a Betty lamp ( I think that's what it is called)... $1.00

Last but not least of the flea market and candle snuffer and candle holder $1.00 and $2.00.

Next we went around to the front of the building where the antique store is. Of course prices are much higher as compared to the flea market. LOL. I did find two things.

First ANOTHER candle holder. I think I'm gonna need some more candles. LOL I know it's not old but I liked the patina on it.

Then I found this cutter coverlet for $25.00. Not so sure I'm gonna be able to cut it though. Maybe if I fold it just right I can hide some of the holes and ripped edges.

So yep many of you are right. It is the thrill of the hunt. Now I just need to purge out some other stuff so I have room for this new stuff. LOL. Easier said than done.

What a load of great finds. I love the spoons, and that coverlet. I think it would be beautiful just folded on one of your blanket cranes-the edge with the houses is gorgeous.

I so love the coverlet you found, not sure I could cut it either. And I completely know what you mean about hoarding. I visit 3 different thrift shops several times a week one is within walking distance of my work, dangerous, I know. I always buy things with the intention of reselling them but most seem to stay home with me. Lol! No worries, our great finds make our homes beautiful!

Hubby and I did not go to the home and garden show here in Wooster
because of the rain.

Is the indoor flea market in
Orrvile or out on RT 30?

Great finds.

We went to the one in Orrville... though I did see the one on Route 30 is open on Saturdays. I'm thinking I need to check that one out too.

Hey Mary! Love all of your new goodies!
I have watched both of those hoarders shows. I think A&E had their show first and I have seen more of those. I tend to forget about teh one on TLC lately.
I can see some awesome pillows for you sofa made out of the coverlet. I adore coverlets and wish I had more of them. I have one complete and several small pillows and some repro dish towels that I would never use as a dish towel. LOL!
Have a happy week!
