A Walk Through The Fleamarket


































A few weeks ago Mr. Flea took me to the Webster flea market.
 I snapped these random photos with my point and shoot
 as I walked the aisles.

Don't know what those little figures are, the pile with the bunny on top, but I'll take a bucket full, please! How fun would it be to craft with those? And I've never, ever, ever seen that many hose nozzles in one place. Ever!

I'm having a give-away over on my blog this month. Hop on over and check it out!

What a fun market!! I sometimes wonder, with all the antique stores and fleamarkets, where does all the stuff come from??? Think about how many people must have held on to things....back before we had a throw away society.

Amazingly clear photos. What is your secret? I have a point and shoot, but don't get this quality. Thanks for taking us along. Looks like a wonderful flea. ~ Sarah

Everything! I want to come!

Rummet för välbefinnande said...

Ohhh yeas! I see many things that I like.
Especially old linen, buttons, laces......

I´m so happy because the other day I visited a friend of mine, and he is the owner of the most fantastic little shop! I know that you would like it very much :)
I bought some things there and when I went home in the evening I was smiling all the way home. I was sitting there in the silence - no radio - and just enjoyed that wonderful feeling of happiness.
Wish you a nice weekend!
Mia

Kikka said...

Your pictures are so fantastic! But I think the Flemarket is also fantastic!

What a trip around the market! Fantastic photos, and I'll haggle for the grape bowl and the decanters with glasses...

Zita - Mlle Magpie said...

So many things to like, Laura! The dollies caught my eye and since I've got gardening on my mind, I was really liking those trugs...

Faithful Crafter said...

Oh Lauria, I can't breath, these images are too wonderful and all in one place too. The hat pins struck my eye. Thank you for sharing.

Carol said...

Robyn said...

Well HOLY COW! That is SOME flea market! My heart actually sped up looking at these great photos! I love so many things! The bright green glass ware, so FUN! I wonder what those cream colored molded items were (like the little bunny)? So cool! ...and those buttons...SWOON! Thank you so much for sharing, you brightened my day!

Robyn said...

BTW, where is this webster flea?

Nancy said...

Hello Laura,
I am a new follower of your blog and loving it every time I stop for a visit. Today you took me along with you and Mr. Flea to this wonderful flea market. I had a great time and was sorry to not be able to virtually spend any money there. However, your photos looked so enticing.....the way the sun hit the crystal, the colorful stacks of vintage lines, the antique and vintage buttons just wanting to be touched.

It will be hard to get back to today's "to do" list as I would rather go out and scope out my own treasures. Your blog will have to do until this awful job market in Michigan improves.

Thanks for your wonderful blog. My blog is almost ready to be released into the blogging world but not quite yet. I'll continue to enjoy yours for as long as you put it out there.

Thanks,

Nancy H.

Carole said...

Hi Laura,

AIR KISS said...

Wow Laura, you have captured some great things on photo! I am esp. drawn to the grain sacks and the plaster (?) bunnies! I just love flea marketing so much & can't wait for flea market season to be in full swing here in the Chicago area! :) I can get so lost in one in a good way.. total therapy for me! Happy weekend!
Lara

kris said...

My heart actually skipped a beat looking at all the rolls-actual ROLLS-of the vintage red striped fabric and linen!! How fast can I book a flight to Webster?! Enjoy!!

Roseanna said...

I could definitely use those fantastic buckles! How did Mr. Flea ever drag you out of there?
P.S. I hope you received your giveaway package!

Ann said...

Loved the rolls of red striped fabric! And was happy to see the clear glass salt dishes. We found about two dozen in my husband's childhood home. I stacked them up on the open shelves in the kitchen where we store our vintage glassware.

Junker Newbie Stephanie said...

That flea market is unbelievable! I wish our markets were like that. What fun! :-)

Cristie said...

I saw a ton of stuff I would have snagged up,depending on the price of coarse !loved the Baby Dolls and green buttons and best of all the Fabric !

Barb said...

OMG, I soooo luv your blog and all the wonderful pictures on your sidebar too!

Wishing you an enjoyable week-end,

Judi D. said...

Wow, now THAT's a flea market I would love to go to! I want everything. Well, almost. I'm missing my usual flea this Sunday because I have to work. Darn.

Ange said...

In the beginning - I thought you had bought ALL of that! I was going to say 'WOW!'
:) Love the lavendar bottles

Evi said...

I love the little things that look like wood with the bunny laying on top. What are these things?
Oh, Laura I could not have walked away from the wonderful linens...not that I need any more!
Cleaning out the garage right now...so what am I thinking...
Lots and lots of love, miss you so much,
Evi

Jen said...

Hi, Laura! I checked out your blog this evening after seeing it featured in Artful Blogging. So many of your gorgeous photos caught my eye--but as a recent convert to the world of altered art, the handmade book pictured under the heading "Journal on My Journey" was definitely my favorite! Was it a flea market find, or did you use some vintage pieces from your collection in creating it? So very inspirational!:-)

it's the little things... said...

I wish I could come to this flea market! Iove the salt dishes! I want all of them!

Dressedtothe9s said...

Boy would I love to get my hands on those buttons!!!

Brenda said...

LOVE your blog. I've spent the morning looking at it instead of working to finish a piece for Etsy. Your photographs draw me right into them. I want to be there. Where is this wonderful Flea Market? There's nothing like that near where I live. I invite you to stop by my blog and leave me a note http://atimeforpaper.blogspot.com/

spopod said...

I want to go to your flea market!

~Robin~ said...

Ooooh don't you just love the "back" section at Webster?! I live here in Orlando and only get to go a couple of times a year (read that as Monday holidays - stupid job!) The last time I went I left empty handed...so sad. Especially since I practically have to pack breakfast, lunch and dinner for the drive to and from. Usually it's totally worth it! They had some good stuff for you trip - i'm jealous!

Laura Twiford said...

I have just found your blog and couldn't believe when i read the post about Webster! I just posted about it myself this past week! On another note I am so sorry to read of your Mother's passing. I can only imagine the heartache you are feeling as my Mom and I are so very close as well. We just recently bought a vacation home in my parents' community down in Florida in the hopes of sharing precious time together although i think there's never enough time with loved ones. My heart goes out to you!
