Hey All . . .
For those of you in or near by Charlotte. NC Metrolina Expo is a place to spend a sunny weekend day - the first of each month . . Ashley and I went by there this past weekend in search of a few things, of course, getting things not on our list. . but we couldn't resist.
I have heard "flea markets are exhausting, overwhelming, too much to look at, can't figure out what I would do with it . . ." and if that's you . . . and are seeing things like this . .
or maybe a pile of old jewelry like this . . .
or table after table like this . . .
I am with ya . . . it can all just look like a pile of junk.
But Flea Markets are great . . . go with something in mind to shop for. I wanted a chair . . something with an interesting shape, one not falling apart, and one I knew with a little TLC could be amazing.
I came across this one . . Ugly . . maybe . .
But when it's done - it could be that special piece in the room that calls attention to. .
Take a closer look . . . this is what I see when I look at this chair . . . all it needs is a little love.
Take a look at a few other jems . . .
Seeing this piece reminds me of a very expensive piece I saw in NYC
and these are just cool !
Love the letters . . . add some light bulbs and make them a focal point - art piece !
See . . . my find at Market
These earrings, at $15 a pair remind me of old typewriter keys and but also remind me of charm necklaces. . the expensive ones ! Add it to your Heather Moore for pennies !!!
See . . .
Love these baskets. . loaded up on the porch with gourds . . just that splash of color you need.
And these are great "broom" fixtures . .
believe he calls himself goodstuff..ltd...
Loving the "Mesh" fixture . .
We both wanted this chandelier . . solid antique brass . . .
And lastly . . . this was killing me . . . these are Mastercraft Chairs ! What a find . . .
Amazing . . . .
and take a look why . . .
Come home with me !!!
So hit the flea, go with an open mind and find something special !!
