Flea Market Finds

I am completely obsessed with Flea Markets.  Ever since I started blogging, I have come across so many fun places to go. I wanted to share some of my flea market finds and show how you can get hunt for inexpensive great pieces and repurpose them into something new.

I found this old milk crate for five dollars at a flea market in Orange, California. I decided to add mason jars, turn it on its side and use it for my makeup and hair products.

Old crates and boxes can be repainted and used to display collections or for storage.

Copy a Restoration Hardware look and collect old books.  Antique books are very easy to find and can at times literally cost pennies.

I found these old rusty horse shoes at a local flea market for two dollars apiece and turn them into a coat/hat rack.

I love the industrial look of these old metal card drawers.  I use them to store craft supplies.

Check out this old wooden basket turned upside down.  Add an inexpensive lamp kit from a hardware store and Voila!

Antique seltzer bottles are great to display in a bathroom or guestroom.  They can run anywhere from $10 to $50 a piece.

Window shutters are fairly easy to find.  Use them to prop behind a side table or place two or three side by side to create a headboard.

 

By the way, for all you SoCal locals, the Long Beach Antique Swap Meet is this weekend! Click here for a discount coupon.

    1. Aren’t they great? The last time I was their, they remembered me and said they had several if I needed anymore. They thought is was “original” that I used them as coat hangers. I don’t think it was their taste 😉 Thanks for stopping by!
