Green Acres Flea Market

Ok girls you asked for pictures from our flea market.....
Here are a few I took this past weekend!
Most of the other pictures I took were blurry!

It was very windy...... and hot!

These are the signs I painted.......
I am NOT a sign painter but these will do for now!

Don't you love this old gate!
I want to bring it home with me!

This old potting shed is on the property!
Hubby wanted to tear it down!

I said WAIT.....
I think we can fix it up and make it into a cute primitive building for someone that sells garden or primitive country items!

Some sellers set their things on the back of their truck and sell from there!

Some pictures from my booth! I love this cute lil nest box!

More of my cherry goodies!

Don't you think these vintage tins would be cute in our kitchen?

This lady does handmade jewelry!

She had some very pretty pieces!

Look toys for boys! Yes alot of guys stopped to look at these toys!

Ohhhh ..... Look at this drop leaf table? It came home with me! I told hubby I liked it and he surprised me and bought it! I have it in the frontroom... waiting to be painted!

The bead ladies booth was so colorful! Especially when the sun hit all the beads!

I almost bought this bean pot home with me! It intriques me! Is'nt it great? I just don't have any room for it! Would'nt it be a cute cookie jar, treat jar for pets, or to hide those medicine or vitamin bottles!

Paper Mache people! Very unique!

Misc stuff

Cute key chains and baubles

The Avon lady always has something you can't live without!

Like Great smelling lotions, bubble baths oh and pretty nail polish, bug guard and sun screen!

Disney memorabelia

Old glass Insulators!
I think I need some of these!
They would be cute with candles in them, hanging from a branch
or sitting in my window box in the winter time when its empty!

That concludes our flea market tour!
Ya'll come back now!

Dolly, Dolly, Dolly. . . I'm coming up to our cottage this weekend and I want to try to get to your market. I'll mapquest directions from Forest Lake/Alger. I don't think you're too far at all :) !!!

Not sure if it will be Saturday, or Sunday. We have the lawn to cut, boats to put into the lake, etc. Hubby normally likes to get our work done first before we "play!" I'm going to try to talk him into getting to your market by 8:00 AM on Saturday, then coming back to our cottage to get all the work done. We'll see how that goes!!

I'll look for you!!!
