Fancy Flea Finds


One of my favorite booths at The Fancy Flea was Gray Branches...



I get weak in the knees just looking at this gorgeous
 blue velvet frame.



















Wonderful collection of old watch faces...



And here she is!
I was so happy to meet the lovely Sue (Sue Bee)
 and her partner Kathy
 in their booth Chic and Shabby.
Sorry I did not get your photo Kathy!


They had so many pretty things...















House of Envy


Why oh why did I pass up on this beautiful old tin?
I love this pastoral scene...





Sweet violets.
I bought the same little round paper box
 at a Paris flea market many years ago.


Something for everyone.
The Fancy Flea ...
in Lakeland, Florida

I'll be here again next year!


Denise @The Rusty Gate and Vintage Chic has let me know that the next Fancy Flea is tentatively set for April 28th!!!
Thanks Denise!

See anything you would have wanted to bring home?

Hello Laura,

I´m a reader of your blog from germany. I have a passion for old beautiful things and fleamarkets too and I see a lot of wonderful things at your pictures. Especially the little salt and pepper shakers with forgetmenots - so lovely. I love such sweet china. I would wish we would have such beautiful and interesting fleamarkets in germany too. I live near france and go soemtimes there to fleas and found many nice things but mostly expensive. But I bring home one or two goodies from every flea.

Have a nice week,
Tanja

What a lovely way to spend an afternoon. I think I would have had to leave my belongings behind so that I would have room to bring back some of those beautiful pieces.

Smiles,

Carol

LOVE LOVE LOVE this post, I love all the great treasures you photographed, especially the clock faces! I would have been dead broke if I had been there!

ceparie said...

Have really enjoyed your recent posts. The chandelier was a great finale! I have my eye on the small silver teapot, the white wicker basket (with ladies gloves sitting on top), the watch faces, and the stack of white frames (underneath the white table).

Yes! I love the wire cloche that Sue is holding. I am going to check out her site now. Thanks for sharing

Sara's Sweet Surprise said...

Hello Laura~I've just strolled in for my first visit...I've enjoyed taking a peek at your posts. You've got so many wonderful treasures. Your blog is so beautifully inviting.
We share similar taste for so many of the same design elements. I would have left skid marks on my credit card had I gone to that flea market. It reminds me of the one held in the Pasedena Bowl in southern CA...which I'd love to attend as well.

As fall comes to a close I look forward to winter that's fast approaching. Bringing a festive inspiration for trimming my home and filling the air with the aromas of the season.

The evergreen decor is much appreciated by the cat who enjoys an occasional game of ping pong with my ornaments...


I look forward to coming by your charming blog again.
Come by for a visit. I'll put the kettle on... your company would be nice.

Sweet holiday wishes,
Sara
