|Isn't my itoning board awesome?|
|My old scale and mason jars look too cool!|
|I love this table even though the top is in tatters. Love the detail work.|
|I have at least 3 basketfuls of frames at home that still need tagged/|
|I added nails to my door to hang stuff from it. It is taking up space, so it needs to be useful, not just vintage cool.|
|Don't quite know what to do with this end table and rack on top of it.|

Today I had a few hours to acutally get some stuff to the new booth. My husband watched Miss Willow for a couple of hours while I drug the big stuff up there to put stuff on. The owner was out fighting a fire since he is a volunteer firefighter so my shelves will hve to wait to be hung til tomorrow. I did manage to buy some from a nice man that is getting rid of some of his and got a good deal on an old tall white shelf. He has another one I may get also that is metal for just 10 bucks. What a deal!
My husband doesn't know it yet, but I drug home a door that I found propped up against someone's mailbox. Not just any ole door..... a nice old chippy paint and old wood kinda door. I saw it this morning then went back to get it this evening on the way to Wal-Mart. Willow is in tow and had no idea what her crazy mommy was up to. The old man that lived there (very nice house by the way) was just dropping off his trash can when I stopped and yelled at him asking him about the door. He was very nice and told me sure I could have it. He didn't think I was crazy at all. He said he saw them used as dividers in the old flea market stores in the next town up. I think it will make the best prop in my new booth. Boy! What luck!! I have been looking for a door too. Of all the places to find one --- on a curb. I drive by there everyday since the babysitter moved. Would have never found it if that hadn't have happened. Anyway, that was my find of the month so far! I have a booth to put stuff in tomorrow too!!! WOOHOO!

Started out late, but made it to a decent auction with a few garage sale stops along the way. Willow was in a good mood and the babysitter's daughter came along for the fun of it. She is such a doll. In the 4th grade and is so helpful and too funny. I think the auction bug is rubbing off on her. She was even helping me tag this evening. We ended up with a car load for less than twenty bucks. LOTS OF PICTURE FRAMES!!!WHAT WAS I THINKING?? CHEAP! I am a sucker for a dollar a box. Gotta be able to make some money off of them in my booth. Shine em up and set em out! My booth is gonna look like a Hallmark display. Got a really ugly chair to redo and a really ugly end table to use to sit things on in my booth. Doubt anyone will buy it. Only was 2 bucks so when I get better display stuff, I can just put a free sign on it. ha ha

Can't even tell you how cheap I got this for. In rotten shape on top, but it is beautiful to me. Going to redo the top . Can't decide if I want to keep it or sell it. Will look good in a display.isn't this just gorgeous? 75 cents!
Cool old sewing box and funky corner candle holder that something must be done to in order to bring it back to modern society.
My spare room is starting to look like Sanford and Son. What a mess!!!!!! I don't get my booth til june 1st, so I am just piling stuff in here. There is a stack of hubby's clothes that don't fit and a clean mattress cover and a desk that has a top somewhere under all the clutter.
Punch bowl and beautiful little candy dish. Got that for a quarter I think. Bowl for 3 bucks.

We did end up at a cool flea market in a town about 20 minutes away and I got some great deals. I hit the 75% off booth and I got a load for less than 20 bucks again. I think 18 is my lucky number. That is always what my finds add up to each time. Anyways, it turned out to be a fun day after all. This will definitely be a market to go back to again. Hopefully on a sunnier day.
Will have pics up tomorrow.
