Sometimes the flea market is overflowing with great things, sometimes its a bit scant– we all know this. Here are a few notable things from our trip to the flea market at the NC Fair Grounds in Raleigh.
I’ve been to Carol Patterson’s booth at the Raleigh flea twice and both times I’ve been tempted. Carol has an eclectic mix and I like that. Carol has four spaces at the Granddaddy’s Antiques Mall in Burlington, NC if you’re ever around. Granddaddy’s says they are the “Largest in the Carolinas”, two acres of treasure. These are Carol’s pieces at the flea,
Oh, this color blue would draw anyone in to the booth, there was actually a low dresser available to match this one,
The rug is from 1960s Vietnam. The colors were vivid and it looked perfect displayed over the blue dresser.
The industrial look still rules and there were some good stools there but no mates in sight,
The only interesting pair I saw at the flea,
I went to the flea market in Raleigh this past weekend and thought I’d share,
This antique dresser makes an excellent bath vanity, marble already on top.
Set of three mid century upholstered chairs, with chrome and teak arms. Made in High Point, NC
Cool rope daybed, how about topped with a french cushion in a living room, library, bedroom
mod green swivel chairs,
shoulda bought this, my immediate instinct was in a little boys room, I’m thinking a striped duvet and mount this striking scene on dark walls
I met this guy in my stroll around. His name is Titus and he is enormous, two year old Great Pyrenees/lab mix. His Mom & Dad rescued him in Missouri but we have a Great Pyrenees rescue right here in NC. You probably have one in your state too.
a sea of chairs,
Again shoulda bought this little slice of folk art,
vintage shave kit, very smart on display in a bath
Seize the opportunity to do it up Tom Scheerer style,
