Bitten by the flea

Well, we had a pretty successful day at the flea market (Lake County Flea Market).  We sold lots of great stuff, some of which we were sad to see go.  However, that always make room for more!  Thank you to all the shoppers!  Also, we met so many great people today.  I wanted to share some pictures of our booth.

Vintage Trims.  I had so much  vintage seam binding and bias tape sitting around.  Liliana, my 2 yr old helped me make these the night before.  They turned out great.

Some of Anne's great stuff.  If this desk is still around after this weekend, it will take on a new life with a coat or two of white paint.

So, for years, I have had the idea of buying an old trailer, rehabbing it, enjoying it, and then selling it.  Well, look what I found today.  This is one of the vendors.  She was by the way, a very nice lady!  I have searched for about two years and have not bit the bullet yet and done it. She has inspired me.  I'm so excited to start looking again.  I would love to have a trailer like this.  It is fabulous!!  There are vintage rose curtains hanging in the window. Perfect!
