Flea Market Finds

Hi Friends! I was able to sneak a hot Saturday to do some summer Flea Marketing recently with my "older" sister ;) and boy did we have fun!  We have at a great Flea Market not too far from home that happens once a month; Kane County in lovely St Charles, Illinois. As we were driving and planning our fun filled day, I realized we didn't have a camera to snap pictures of all the unique, beautiful  junk  antiques!  We met all kinds of people and can I say how refreshing it is to still meet some truly kind, nice , honest people! One dealer in particular, Burt was a joy to talk with! My big sis bought a terrific mirror from Burt at a great price too! (Hope his wife was not too angry with him for giving it away selling it so cheaply ! Anyway, even though I couldn't take pictures during our fun flea market day laughing, searching, talking, I took some after of a few of my treasures!

Blue Mason Jars with zinc lids

A pretty white lace pillow slip looks perfect on our bed!
What do you think? 
 Until next time..... savor summer and stay cool!

                I'm linking up to Nifty Thrify Tuesdays @ Coastal Charm take a look at all the great finds!


  1. Loving those huge corbels! I would have scooped those up too. One can never have too many blue ball jars. I have them too. Love them. The pillow case is really pretty.

    By the way, I'm the 4th sister!

  2. Great finds!! LOVE the architectural pieces! Those are my favorites!!!

    Love your blog! I am a follower and I will be back!

  3. I LOVE your finds - my fave is the corabels (sp?)
    Also love your Chicago pics! snuck up there too a few weeks ago.

  4. Looks like you and your sister had a great day with some really nice finds. Any day spent with a sister is a great day and finding treausres is just a bonus!

  5. I love the while lace pillowcase. You don't find many anymore. I am new visitor to your blog. I'm the oldest or should I say second
