DML Flea Market Trip

Mornin' ya'll! I thought I'd share a couple of photos of my "finds" to my trip to DML Flea Market.  My day started out with driving out to a couple of community yard sales, when I arrived there were only 2 garage/yard sales going on! And, nothing to really speak of to nab.  So I drove out to my favorite "flea market".  I put it in quotes because it's really not a normal flea market.  It's more of a huge warehouse garage sale type place.  LOTS of big and small goodies, including glass, lamps, craft supplies, wood, some furniture, knick knacks.. what-have-ya type store/warehouse. I LOVE it there.  I can usually get lost for at least 2 hours each time I visit..

Anyway, here's what I found on this trip:

Really HEAVY weaved basket, marked "Made in Italy", planter with the holes (I have a couple of plates and a cake stand with these holes.. and thread colored or white ribbon through them. I will do the same for the planter shown here.) 2 huge shells for my beach themed lanai, a holly hobby wall plate, 2 glass candle holders, an embroidered vintage towel and hanky, some cherub decorations (50 cents!) a sweet little white birdie and a really cute wire plant holder that looks like a tea cart to me.

I will be spray painting this little "cart" white, of course!

"Start Each Day in a Happy Way"

Total cost for this trip and my new little trinkets: $22!

  8. I just noticed you live in Kissimmee I live downtown Orlando, I am your newest follower, got to keep track of a local girl! Thanks for entering the apron giveaway, Annie gets a lot of her fabric at local California quilt shops, but also online at a website called 5 bucks a yard. Good luck, hope you win!


  9. Hi Carol, we actually just moved to the Mt. Dora area. Still pretty close to you! LOVE the aprons that Annie makes, they are sooo pretty!!
