flea blue dresser

Saturday at the Flea

By

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.

By

Southern California continues to impress itself into my heart and as it is becoming more and more my home, it’s moments like these where I’m grateful we found one another. It’s not a rare occasion that one might hop over to Craigslist and be totally bowled over with awesomeness. My home is full to the brim and the dude and I just signed on for another two year lease, so we won’t be looking to fill any space soon. So, I have nothing else to do with my finds other than to share them with you, and plead that you please buy them and then tell me all about what it is like to live with the following. You probably don’t need me to tell you this, but this is two pieces of a dream. I can picture this swathed in pillows of textiles from all over the globe, starting…
