When Chairish asked me to do a post on my best find, I was flattered and terrified all at once.* I am TERRIBLE at picking favorite anythings. 95% of my furnishings are vintage/previously loved, so how do you even qualify such a thing? Is it the piece that has the most value in relation to what I paid? Is it the most rare? It’s like asking a parent to pick their favorite kid, you can’t – you love them all equally, yet uniquely.
I have not posted a flea market trip in forever…I still post the pics on my Instagram when I go, but this is a long overdue post with some pics included that never made it to IG. I have not been able to go all Summer and it was making me sad and restless. So the day I finally get to go is a swampy, sweaty, humidity-fest with a heat index of over 100. But we did it. My girl LJ and I hit it like champs and suffered though with only our lemonades to soothe us.
Here’s what we saw. The photos aren’t great today – must be my sweaty hands slipping on the phone!
These crazy hanging side tables (with the red flower lamp to boot) had marble slabs that fit inside the brass frame-definitely craziest thing I saw today!
Have a great weekend!! It’s gonna be a hot one here!
Just a reminder that Brandy at Make + Model has a Spring Pop Up Shoppe coming up May 4th!
Those following on Instagram know I’ve been clearing out the house and making all sorts of things available to you! I will be joining 83 others in contributing items to a HUGE consignment sale in Franklin. Hope you can make it out during your lunch hour, or find some other time to see what good stuff will be there! Here’s the blurb from the organizer:

DON’T MISS THIS ONE!!!!!”
Friday was rainy and a lot of vendors didn’t want to play, so I waited until Saturday to hit the flea. Here’s a recap of what I saw…. You can see all my other trips to the flea HERE.
I picked up this $10 lamp for a friend whose new house is going to get the Modfrugal zhush treatment. We are excited to get started as soon as the boxes are unpacked!
I really, REALLY loved and wanted these elves, but not for $60…..
I would have loved to pick up another one of these to make mine a pair, but these felt like flimsy knock-offs. They were overpriced too.
So what did I get? Well, after the flea I also had a Craigslist appointment, so I added to my finds with a waterfall console. I know our Craigslist can be a tough one and after Emily Henderson’s Nashville CL review, this felt like a much needed win!
But I had to paint the kitchen ceiling instead or rearranging the house when I got home…boo!
But the switcheroos have started and the house is in crazy flux. Lots to do today. Until next month!
