One of the things I try to do when I'm traveling is to buy stock for the booths (along with a few things for myself, of course!). My goal is to buy enough that my profits on the items will cover the cost of the trip. I usually manage to make this goal, but not always. Larry isn't as willing as I am to stop and browse, and sometimes the pickings are just lean. I have found some good stuff recently, though. Here's a few of them:
I found two of these multicolor crackled glass vases or candle holders. I know they're new but the colors just glow in the light. These will be on my table this fall for sure.
We found two old, solid coat trees at ReStore. Larry stripped and restained them because they were water-stained. I think they're really nice.
Don't you love this handle? Someone was upcycling a long time ago!
The little folding rocker is mine to keep, I think. I'd like to take it storytelling with me.
I never can resist a crystal decanter. I know crystal is out of fashion now, but it is so beautiful and I don't understand why it's low on the decorating radar these days, especially with he popularity of Downton Abbey.
This West Bend bean pot is mine to keep! I had one without the heater base and had been looking for the base. I'll sell my other pot.
Gorgeous pale aqua centerpiece bowl was a flea market find in western North Carolina.
Cookie jars--who can resist them?
Mugs and more mugs, and
nifty navy and white polka dot salad plates, another flea market find in North Carolina.
