I picked up some really great items at the flea market on Sunday that I couldn't wait to share with you. One of them is this beautiful hand made linen purse that was only $5!
It is absolutely beautiful and so well made, I told the woman she should go into business!
Some other things I bought are a book of old songs and a small ironstone dish for a dollar each from a guy that had some really neat things.
But my favorite thing that I got was this old cutting board....it wasn't priced and when I asked the seller how much he wanted he said "offer me something fair". So I offered $3 and then bit my lip, and he said "that's more than fair"! Then he said "what are you going to paint on it?", in reply I said "Oh I would never paint this!". Can you imagine?! I mean look at the thickness on this beauty!
We unearthed the original siding and are going to remove it very carefully so as to be able to reuse as much of it as possible. Why on earth you would ever cover it up in the first place is beyond me.
I will try to show our progress as much as possible, time permitting:)
I see the beauty of your home that was hiding under that siding.ReplyDelete
Look forward to following along.
It's always such a treat to visit you!ReplyDelete
Great finds - that purse is beautiful and loving that cutting board - but most of all
I can't wait to see what you do with that room off the kitchen :)
Oh my gosh...I cant believe you got that cutting board for $3..what a steal...maybe now you can paint some ducks on it....NOT..can you imagine doing that..silly man!! I love that bag too...you did well! Have fun with your demo. x0ReplyDelete
You did really well at the flea market...the cutting board is awesome and a steal for $3.00! I know you will treasure it.ReplyDelete
What a lot of work you have going on! Just wondering, are you enlarging your kitchen or making a new room? I may have missed a post.
Congratulations on demo starting! How very exciting! I;m sure it is going to be so lovely when you are done with it!ReplyDelete
Love the siding. We are currently working on our exterior that has its original cedar siding and most everyone thinks we should put up vinyl...nah!!!ReplyDelete
Love your finds! Can't wait to see the progress on your reno :)ReplyDelete
You certainly can sniff out the good buys! Love that cutting board. Those original clapboards are amazing. You must be young if you love a good reno! :)ReplyDelete
I adore that new handmade tote you found! I agree that that lady could make and sell those for a lot more than $5. What a steal! Love the thick cutting board you found too. I would never paint it either. I don't think that guy knew what he really had! LOL! Looking forward to seeing the progress of your renovation.ReplyDelete
