Maybe some of you were wondering just what I brought home with me from the mega flea market that is Brimfield.
I swear, I didn't mean to bring home a little school house collection but that is exactly what happened. I guess my preferences are rather predictable.
I spent a totaly of $92 for these treasures. I mention that because I as a lover of flea markets, I often wonder what people pay for their finds. Certainly some sellers want major bank and I'm almost always floored. Are there that many shoppers who dig through junk piles to pay top dollar? As I mentioned, I wasn't overwelmed by the deals on offer at Brimfield but there were some items at reasonable prices and this was my little collection.
My favorite find is this great old P. Derby & Co. chair. It will replace the Ikea chair in my little room. Don't you think this is a much better fit? And for $25 I could not go wrong.
The globe is going to the basement where Mr. L's 'man cave' awaits some serious attention. All in due time.
I'm thinking the tray will make it down to the shore to live on the coffee table or maybe even our dining room table?
The metal sign is for the hubs' office. Can you believe this very same sign was going for $275 at another booth? HUH?
And the giant ruler (longer than a yard) is going to be used for - gasp!- measuring fabric. Hard to imagine using something old for its intended purpose but I like to live dangerously. $5 seemed like a little steep but I just liked how it looked and how it was oversized so it seemed okay to go crazy with a fiver.
So what do you think of my goodies? For those that attended, what did you bring home?
