Great stuff...old wooden boxes, a farm table, and beautiful sideboard...
This vanity is one-of-a-kind - with our fun, handpainted flowers!  Id like to keep this one!
This old box is so cool.  (and we didnt even have to paint it!)
Some great old feeders (I think!)...
An old smoking stand - its smoke-free now!  And a great limey green!

Well...we're hitting the road to the great state of Kentucky - Burlington, to be exact.  It's our first flea market of the season, and we're ready to set it up and sell it!!!  We've got some great stuff and wanted to share a few pieces with y'all!

We've been fixing, painting, and pricing our fingers off the last few weeks - and now we're all packed up and ready to go.  Praying for nice weather and lots of new customers!  If anyone is in the area, we're at the Boone County Fairgrounds this Sunday, April 19th - here's the link...  http://www.burlingtonantiqueshow.com/  Would love to meet some of our junkmarketstyle members! 

P.S.  You can see more pics on my blog:  www.sylviasdaughter.blogspot.com

shabbychick writes: Thanks for all the comments everybody. Unfortunately...Mother Nature won this one...we had a few hours of clear skies in the morning on Sunday (started selling at 6:00 a.m.), but rained out by noon. There were still those diehard shoppers trudging around, and there were some sales - we covered our expenses - but, that's the fleamarket business...

HOWEVER, it was a girls' weekend and we had our two friends with us - we had a blast on our travels, made a couple new friends - found some really great junk (will post later) and wore ourselves out laughing (that's a good thing!!). After we got back, I left my friend's house - and on the way home found a "gift" by the side of the road - a "free" sign sitting in front of an old wooden hand plow "thingie", so I had to turn around (as it was screaming at me to put it in my garden), and threw it in the back of my (already pretty full) van! So...all is well!!! :)

Also, we were invited to be vendors at an Antique Festival in Waynesville, Ohio - it'll be awesome - Waynesville is called the "Antique Capital of the Midwest"...it'll be huge fun and a great show!

Thanks again, everyone! Posted: 2:00 pm on April 20th

I hadn't checked my page in forever and saw that I had a ton of comments...and I thought I had no love! I just started a blog also, check it out when you get time. It's still under construction but I am excited about it! www.menmyhouseblog.blogspot.com. Much love to you and have an awesome week! Posted: 5:01 am on April 16th

piecesofthepast - if you go to the link for the show you can get a map - hoping you're nearby...it's a really nice show - beautiful country setting - good vendors & good food! Would love to meet you!

Jenny, I really like the box too. I put pics on my blog and one of my friends posted a request to buy it - wish we had 6 more to sell!!

Janis, the color of the table is awesome - and I distressed the heck out of it to get back some of the original (gray) paint too - it's a nice mix.

Take care, Kathy Posted: 10:57 pm on April 15th

You have some great stuff. I feel you will do great. The 1st market is always the best! I love the vanity with round mirror. The paint job is great. Good luck & be safe on the trip.
