Weekly Thrifting

I brake for flea markets and yard sales.  Seriously.  If you ever are driving behind a yellow jeep beware, I will slam on my brakes for any sign that insinuates a sale may be near.  It's a disease.  

Lately I've been having so much fun visiting all of my old favorite flea markets and antique stores with my mom and on my own, as well as finding so many new ones.  If you're in the market for old stuff, Missouri is the place to be!  Here's a few of the things I picked up this week...

*I am completely obsessed with colorful Bakelite kitchen containers.  I'm trying to decide if these are going to go in my etsy shop or my future kitchen!  Also see the fabric behind?  I scored on these pretty 3 panel flower power curtains, they're going to look so pretty in my room!

* Remember my birthday goal of starting a new collection?  Well I think that vintage thermoses have officially become one of my new ones, they're all SO pretty! I found these three little guys at various flea markets in the same day...kismet?  

* I think these little crossstitched pictures are so sweet, and I couldn't pass up this pretty flower tin tray.  It's going to be a perfect place to throw my keys.  

*I have been looking for a vintage drink cart from the 50's for ages when I stumbled upon this one.  It needs a little work, but with a little paint and a little WD-40 it's going to be SUCH a great piece.  

*The one that got away.... I spotted this tin top desk at the STD flea market (I know, ridic name right?)  but the price wasn't perfect.  I'm really pondering going back and trying to haggle again though, it's too great.  

What haven't y'all been finding lately? xoxo Fearsy

  2. I'm looking for a bar cart also! Saw one I liked awhile back but the price wasn't right and it is really hard trying to convince your bf that it's a necessary investment. Best find recently: 1950s tin flour and sugar containers that perfectly match my kitchen. Jealous of your bakelite ones!
