Ack! New houses are a major time-and-energy drain! I want to be writing, sewing, reading...but instead I am mowing, staining, picking paints, unpacking...You KNOW my inspiration has been compromised when I title a post "flea market fun."
Anyway, a few pictures I've been meaning to share from my flea market trip to Raleigh a few weeks back:
Aren't these drawers cool? If only I could have taken them home all stacked up like this.
Bins from a textile mill of some sort (I can't remember what the booth owner told me they were for exactly - cotton or yarn or something?).
Next to dressers, trunks are a favorite to admire. I love the red scripty-scrolly motif on the front (scripty-scrolly is a technical term).
Big fan of graphics and old paper. When you open the scripty-scrolly trunk, a pretty surprise under the lid!
Aren't they gorgeous? I was tempted, seriously tempted. But I kept going. This is what a recent move and four huge boxes stacked with fabric awith no where to go will do for you: it will finally give you the restraint you need to admire these treasures and just keep walking.
I was pretty proud after that trip. I walked away with two storage pieces I needed (and a small chair for E. that I couldn't resist because it was inexpensive and it twirls) and went home.
