Happy Monday!

24 January 2011

How were all of your weekends? I went to the flea market with my buddy M and finally bit the bullet on the chair I’ve been wanting to take home for months (see: no. 24 on my 101 list!). Yay! It’s in great condition (though a bit dusty), and at just $60 stacks up well to these lovelies on the Pottery Barn site (which retail for $400!!).

Here it is after I dragged it up three flights of stairs to our apartment:

Stay tuned for my plans for it!

We also stopped into an adorable tea room filled with delightful things. I had to restrain myself. A few pieces that caught my eye:

Pineapple tea bag holder (which I would use as a spoon rest and found here online)

A white-on-white pineapple planter

Distressed trophy cups

Adorable vintage-reproduction hankies. M snatched up a few of these for her bridesmaids’ bouquets. I love this idea! See how cute?

    What flea market do you go to? I love going to Eastern Market in DC but I've never seen such a great find like your chair.

    Hi Cassie! I go to the Saturday/Sunday market at the NC State Fairgrounds in Raleigh. Here's the website: http://www.ncstatefair.org/fleamarket/index.htm

    For DC area markets, I have a few suggestions. I've heard the Big Flea is really good. It's not every weekend, just once or twice a year, but it could be worth checking out. (I think it's March 5-6 this year).

    Also, it's not a flea market, but I've heard good things about Old Lucketts Store in Leesburg, VA. Kind of a drive, but it looks awesome! Here's the website: http://luckettstore.com/index.php

    Hope that helps!

    Hankies are such a sweet idea, love it! Very jealous of that flea market too.
