Can we create a new term for a REALLY late blog post?  Reason being, I am writing about my market find from June!  Better late than never though, and when you see it you will agree that it was well worth the wait:) So once again, I attended my favorite market, the Randolph Street Market in Chicago.  As usual, there were booths filled with great things, but one piece  in particular caught my eye…a vintageRead More →

If you haven’t figured it out yet, I am a huge lover of all things antique and vintage!  I’ve done posts on flea markets before, but I’ve never shared an experience at Chicago’s Randolph Street Market!  I’m obsessed with this market mainly for the vintage fashion and accessories.  Incorporating vintage jewelry, a bag, or a hat into your wardrobe, gives it a certain uniqueness, that you just can’t get from a department store.  How aboutRead More →

I finally made it to the flea market this summer!  With life as hectic as it is, I don’t have the opportunity to frequent the markets nearly as much as I used to.  So when I do go, I must be efficient!  This trip was extremely spontaneous, so I pretty much thought about my plan of attack on the ride out there.  I knew I wanted little things to help finish off my living room,Read More →

So I mentioned that I stumbled across a fabulous find in my previous post and here it is!  A turquoise metal retro bar cart!  The moment I laid eyes on this piece, I knew it was meant to be, however, when I walked up to the vendor someone else was checkin it out.  So I patiently waited, pretending that I was looking at something else and wanted nothing to do with the cart. The momentRead More →

I love summer for many reasons, but I think my absolute favorite thing about summer are the flea markets!  I have been “junkin” for about 8 years now and just can’t get enough!  I’ve traveled all over for these markets, both in and out-of-state, and it’s an adrenaline rush every time.  I swear I’m actually giddy driving there!  Even if I’m not in looking for a particular item, I just love looking at all ofRead More →

So most of you that know me, know that I love to incorporate vintage items in my home.  I’ve been a flea marketer for years and finding that special and unique piece is part of the thrill of going to these markets.  Well now, I have found a new way to acquire these special pieces, the garbage! Haha!  The story behind this table goes like this…I’m driving my kids to school one very wet andRead More →

So I mentioned in one of my recent posts that I was working on a project with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, so here it is!  This isn’t the first time I’ve used this amazing paint, my first project was a pair of dressers that I put in my youngest son’s room, they turned out sooo cool, I’ll make sure to show you those soon.  Anyway, I can’t tell you how much I adore this paintRead More →

If any of you have read my ‘About’ page, you know that I love flea markets, so I wanted to start sharing some of the pieces that I have picked up from various flea markets and auction houses. When I walked in the door with this architectural element, I had mixed reviews from my critics.  First, my three-year old son asked me, “we climb on it Mommy?”  Then my husband asked me if I rippedRead More →
