My husband suggested we head to the Raleigh Flea Market this morning. I had to ask him to repeat it.
Really he’s the one suggesting a day browsing through other people’s stuff. And not just anyones stuff, like old people’s stuff.
I answered with a quick heck ya. Don’t question him, or else he’ll change his mind.
And what do you know, he actually had a good time.
Here are all the things I would have bought if I wasn’t running around like a crazy lady screaming at my kids to not touch anything.
I ended up not getting a single thing, but my boys somehow scored a bunch of cool vintage Star Wars toys. I hate when they get better stuff than me. It’s just not fair.
I really wanted to find a vintage toy truck to use as a planter, but I’m not willing to spend $25 on one. My goal is to find one for a buck, so basically I’ll never have a toy truck planter.
I thought this old blue newspaper stand would make great storage somewhere. Towel storage in a bathroom, or toy storage in a playroom or even a planter on your front porch. I’m totally kicking myself for not buying this one.
Of course like any good flea market they had bottle crates. I was running after the boys at this point, and didn’t even notice till I got home and looked at the picture that the bottom crate was Canada Dry. Darn, I’ve been looking for one forever.
