What I Saw At Renninger's Mt. Dora

 52 FLEA

It's all my son Dan's fault.
He gave me an Iphone 5 for Christmas.
I have been hooked on Instagram.
Way too much fun!

In any case...here are some photos (a lot of photos)
 from last Friday at the
 Renninger's Extravaganza in Mt Dora, Florida.

Enjoy!




Above 3 photos taken in the booth of Anna Bugardi...
Direct Importer of European Antiques.






































The above 4 photos were taken in the booth of Americana Antiques from New Hampshire.
I have a lot of yellow ware...all collected...back in the day.
It is packed up and stored away now, as in recent years the ironstone collection has taken over.


It was a beautiful day to be outside in the sun.
You have to love Florida in February!


I loved this old Martin birdhouse.
It looks a lot like the ones my great grandfather made
 in the 1930's and put up in his gardens at the lake.






love.


A pretty booth by Brittany and her Mom.

And then there was Randy's booth...Jersey Picker.
Too much fun!




You can see more of his collections at jerseypicker.tumblr.com.
I also follow him on Instagram.
Tell him 52 FLEA sent you over! :)



I found a few of these sweet blue bird dishes
 last summer up at the lake.



...an armadillo purse...anyone?








...too cute.






This chair was in the booth of Chici's Cottage Style.







If you stayed with me through the end of this post...
after 76 photos...
you may want to sit and rest awhile on this funky blue love seat. 
We were there last Friday and had a ton of fun.
Did you see anything you want?
:)
If I happened to capture an image from your booth and did not identify you,
 please let me know and I will add a credit.

Thank you all for the comments on my last post...
the Webster walk through...
...since then...I have been back again so more photos to come!

I will be reopening my 52FLEA Etsy shop
 with a few finds real soon.

and lastly...Dad sailed through his first chemo treatment today.
We are optimistic for a positive outcome. Thank you for your prayers!
:)

Yummy, yummy. So much stuff that would have driven my husband mad if I'd been able to buy it! xx

Laura,
Wow Wow Wow!!!! What a great bunch of eye candy treasure. Thanks for sharing. My mom lives in Florida and I have always wanted to go to Mt.Dora it looks like a cute old fashion town. My hubby is a fire chief and would have loved that helmet. I also have a red and white basset hound just like in your pictures. So fun to look at all the treasures. Thanks for sharing.

martinisfor2 said...

We were unable to head up to the extravaganza this month... sigh.
Yes, yes I did see things I usually look for... now I'm really depressed. I even recognized photos of a few of my favorite dealer's booths. Isn't Jersey Picker a riot... love to shop his booth. All I can say is... can't wail 'til Friday, November 15th!!!

Gina at Vintage Junk in My Trunk said...

Um, wow! I love that cash register and the typewriters, of course! Great eye candy!

I love when you post and it never feels like 76 photos...I'll take your word for it. Just beautiful and sending my prayers to FL just for your Dad!!

Heaven's Walk said...

Oh Laura....I'm so jealous! I know that Tausha from Simply Me blog attends that flea market and always comes home with such beautiful treasures! Your photos truly show that this is one of the best flea markets I've ever seen! Just beautiful items!!!! Glad you had such a good time! I will be remembering your dad in my prayers tonight, too. :)

WolvesAtTheDoor said...

Thanks so much for these photos! I thoroughly enjoyed going to those markets via your iPhone!!! Interesting to see that a lot of what is popular over here in Australia is very similar, I'm kinda glad I wasn't physically there, I think my head would explode with all the possibilities and everything I wanted!:)

Vickie @ Ranger 911 said...

Not only did I make it through all the photos, I went back to take a second look. Today I'm loving the quilts, the crocheted lace, of course the leaded glass windows, and the cash register. What in the world I'd do with a cash register, I have no idea, but it's divine!

Thanks for taking us along, Laura!

Cassie Anne ~ stoneluv.blogspot.com said...

Oh I love what you found! I have been looking for an ice cream scoop for ages! And there you have a ton of them! And those buttons!? Oh. My. Goodness! I wish I could find such great things!

The blue and white floral porcelain orange juice squeezer is calling my name!

Evi said...

keeping my fingers crossed and saying prayers for your dad!
Ok, I'll take the white and black boots, the box with the millenery flowers, and could find a spot for the chair from Chici's Cottage Style.
It was nice talking the other night!!!
Enjoy your time with sis and dad.
Lots of love and hugs,
Evi

The Blue Farmhouse said...

Man oh man...I would buy the birdhouse, a mannequin,
the canoe for my husband, the seed box, should I continue...lots of nice stuff. By the way what did you buy?:)

Renee said...

wow! So many goodies. I love that you shared this!

lala said...

OH, thank you ever so much for posting so many gorgeous photos!!! I love seeing all of the different displays - especially that suitcase filled with old millinery - would have snatched that up in a heartbeat!! Your phone takes fantastic photos. Can't wait for your Etsy shop to open!

brudeblogg said...

Love it all! :)
Wish I was there!

Andy's Attic said...

Happy your dad did well. I wish we had markets like that around here. All the variety is stunning. Ours all start to look the same...little color, still the shabby look, more vintage vs. antique.

JunkStuffTreasures said...

Thanks for sharing the pics! I've never been- would you consider this a high-end market or are there reasonably-priced treasures?

Good news about your dad!

okcamp said...

Too much fun. Love the fabric and the fireman's helmet. I saw the price on that one....wow! We're buried under three feet of snow. Thanks for the reminder that summer will return at some point.

Maison Beldecor said...

Rustique Gal said...

Laura, Did I find anything I liked??? Well...about 50 of these pictures had something that caused my BP to jump. I can't wait to get out fleaing myself!
Thanks for sharing these great shots and getting me all excited for Spring!
Hugs,
Sherry

Michelle Palmer said...

Did you bring the puppies home!?! I would have found the perfect size quilt chest, packed them in there with water bottles... linens, corn dogs! Perhaps this is why hubby doesn't encourage me to visit markets! (giggle)
Thank you for sharing, Sweet Friend~ what treasures!

PURA VIDA said...

Amazing from the windows on

Lisa said...


Yes I stayed thru all 76 photos! what eye candy. I have the shakes now & need a flea market fix. Laces, millinery,typewriters, those spectator boots...swoon, but my most wanted pick from the market? Those pups!
What fun you had Laura!
Lisa

Thilda said...

SO lovely again! I love those windows, and many other things...

Marilyn said...

Oh sigh! Love it all. I have never seen so many different styles of reamers. How I wish I could reach out and touch the linens and quilts. Everything is lovely.

Regina said...

Your pictures are beautifull, wish I could have been there. I saw lots I would love to have...lol Maybe another time. My prayers are with your Dad and your family.

Heart Vintage Design said...

Great photos. Although I'm a vendor at the Extravaganzas, I hardly ever get to explore. Love the white buttons, the chippy wood, the imported linen fabric… I could go on and on. Thanks for sharing : )

I've been there many, many times,however since my car accident in 05, I've not been able, and I miss it. My wife and I just spent Easter there today, my Moms home is very close to Rennigers, whenever we come up here I get a little sentimental, we have bought many lovely piece there over the years! Keep posting, thanks! Danny
