My apologies for two local-based posts in a row, but I wanted to share another neat place we visited this weekend! Market Imports is located at the State Farmer’s Market in Raleigh, and it’s full of treasures. Mostly too-expensive-for-Emily’s-budget treasures, but fun to browse, regardless. Here are some of the items that caught my eye…
I think this metal cabinet would be perfect in a craft room! ($395)
There were so many jars! They kind of looked like these ones from Pottery Barn, and at $26-$44 a pop depending on size, not too bad of a price. I’m sad I didn’t leave with one.
I liked the number tags on these little galvanized pails. ($9.50 each)
This would be the perfect stool for beside a bed or sofa. ($95)
The Coast Guard daughter in me loved this life preserver ring. I don’t have a great feel for what these typically go for, but I thought the price of $45 was pretty reasonable.
This bottle dryer, on the other hand, definitely seemed overpriced at $255, but I liked it anyway.
This guy would be cute next to a sofa, as well, or on a patio. ($265)
This teal lantern was missing a pane of glass and so was marked 40% off from its original price of $59. I was dissuaded from bringing it home, but one of you Carolina gals should go snatch it up!!
Favorite find of the day? These copper lanterns, $89 each.
