Weekend of Thrifting

Nicer weather means it’s flea market time! I stumbled across my new favorite store in Maryville called Vintage 159. They were having a flea market outside the other day and I stopped by. There’s something so fun about looking through a bunch of old things and trying to think of a use for them. The first thing I noticed was this funky looking shelf. It’s the long, brown wooden shelf in the photo. The guy selling it was not even sure it was a shelf. He said he had never brought it out before because he didn’t think anyone would buy it. I plan to pain it and them decorate it with some old bottles and flowers on every other opening.

I picked up a few flour sacks, too, finally. I see them everywhere and I finally got a good deal on some nicer ones. I have no idea what I am going to do with them yet, I have just always wanted some. The windows are going to be added to my growing collection. I hoard old windows and slowly, but surely, will start to finish painting them for decoration. I have a done a few before and they turned out really pretty!

I saw the old, rusty, wheel on my way into the shop and had to buy it. It was so cheap! Only like $10. I figured I can do something with that, too, and get an Anthropologie look for way less. I found the fabulous suitcases inside Vintage 159. I could spend hours in that little store. They had the coolest items. Old, new, refurbished, redone, painted, destroyed, vintage, EVERYTHING. The prices were unbelieveable. I plan to turn the suitcases into displays for jewelry and accessories.

Now I just need to get to painting and selling! But I always end up wanting to keep everything for myself πŸ™‚
