Flea Market Finds & Another Snow Day!

Hey there friends...
A new indoor flea market opened up literally 5 minutes away from me...thank goodness they're only open on Saturday and Sunday!! I made my first trip there this past weekend and came home with some great finds...let's have a look...
This antique chair was the first thing I spotted. I will NOT be taking a paint brush to this piece...I love the finish on it and the pretty cane seat. It's new home is in my bedroom.

Next up I spied this demijohn and you'll never guess what I paid for it....are you ready $10!! At the same booth I also spied this pretty little tole tray...paid $10 for that too.
This little tray will be getting hung on my new gallery wall here
Now this last piece is the largest of my finds but you're only going to get a little peek of it...I know I'm mean;)
This beauty is in the process of getting a makeover... I can't wait to show you!!
Not bad for my first time there...right!?!

This is what I saw this morning when I opened the garage door to let Neena out! 
Another foot of snow fell during the night.
After I made us all french toast for breakfast... the kids went outside to go tubing.

It's still snowing here... our fingers are crossed for a two-hour delay in the morning:)

You found some great things, Martina! I love that tole tray. I can't wait to see it added into your gallery wall. We didn't get as much snow as those further north from us because we had some sleet thrown in. It's getting a bit tiresome now and I heard there may be more Sunday!

Ron said...

Wow, Martina! You did great! The snow is so pretty but I bet y'all are over it all. I cannot wait to see your new piece of furniture. xo

Love that chair and what a great buy on the demi john! Looking forward to seeing your makeover.

The snow is so pretty.

You scored big on your first visit there. I really like the little tray. We were off from school today for a bit of ice, so there was no school, but also no snow for sledding. They've already announced a 2-hour delay for tomorrow.

Brandi said...

Love your finds! The chair is gorgeous. Glad your kids had fun playing in the snow.

Deserae said...

Gosh, I can't decide which of your new finds I love the most since they are all soooooo fabulous :o) We got a foot of snow yesterday too but it is so cold today none of the kids are out enjoying it. Can't wait to see what you are working on!

Love your new finds! Your chair is so pretty. I can't believe how much snow you got. It sure has been an interesting winter, even here in Texas we have had the coldest temperatures in years. Enjoy tubing! :)

Michele said...

Great finds! You children are beautiful! Wish my grandchildren were closer to play in all this snow...

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Great chair and good deal on the demijohn. Those are called a tole tray and that is pretty too and will look good with your others. Stay warm!

Dawn said...

Looks like you hit the jackpot at the flea market. I can't believe what great condition the chair is in. We are buried in snow here also, it is piled high.

Stacey said...

Wow you found some beautiful things for great prices. Your snow is beautiful too. It's snowing here in the Dallas area right now. Of course, it won't do the same as you have but it's fun to look out and see it. :)

Bliss said...

Unlike everyone else, I can't seem to get enough of seeing the snow at other peoples houses. I think it just makes me feel better living in Minnesota.

marty (A Stroll Thru Life) said...

Wow, you hit the jackpot, I love all of your new treasures. Hugs, Marty

Tammy @ A Walk in the Countryside said...

White Weathered Hutch said...

Great finds Martina! Yuk!! More snow here and we have already 5' of it.

Dee @ A Lapin Life said...

Wow you really did score Martina!!! I love the pictures of your children. So cute! I can't wait for spring. I heard more snow is coming this weekend.

The French Hutch said...

Hi Martina, Oh boy, a flea market only a five minute walk and I would be in big trouble. Love the chair and bargains to boot. Don’t kids just love snow days?!!!!

Scribbler said...

My dear I think you might be in trouble with that market opening so close! ;>))

You found some great things --

That snow is beautiful, but I have to tell you, I am so glad it is not us!

I really love all your new finds! You hit the jackpot that day, didn't you? That big piece of furniture is very nice. Looking forward to seeing it's full reveal. Enjoy the pretty snow! Tubing sounds like a blast. I've never done that before.

Sue said...

beautiful chair...but dangerous that the shop is so close to your house :)
looking forward to seeing what the makeover looks like.....you also have adorable children!

Shenita @ Embellishments by SLR said...

Wow, what great finds, Martina! What I would give for that demijohn! That was an awesome price! Can't wait to see that last piece. You're such a tease...lol!

Art and Sand said...

I can't imagine keeping kids inside all day on snow days. Are they going crazy yet?

That chair is wonderful and makes me wonder whatever happened to some similar chairs my mother-in-law owned.

You must have wiped them out! What a deal on the demijohn. I could never be so lucky to find one at that price around here. Just wanted to let you know I'm new at blogging and have discovered your blog. Love what I see!

Olive said...

I love the demijohn and what a price.
