This past weekend was the local flea market in my area, McKinney Trade Days.
The pickin’s have been a little slim there the past few months, and it’s been HOT! But, this weekend the weather was really quite pleasant, and I found lots of wonderful things, and I thought I’d share!
What I found at McKinney Trade Days.
I was smitten with this floor lamp I found buried in the back of a dealer’s space. It is fully functional and has lots of patina.
My favorite part is its ornate finial.
From the large to the small . . . I spotted this great etched brass vase complete with a matching, removal frog.
It is so petite . . . perfect for a fall tablescape. I like to stock my booth also with unique vintage art, and this Sailboat oil painting was an incredible find. It has no signature on it, but is the REAL deal, not just a print.
The colors were rich, and look at the close up of those white capped waves:
Someone else must have liked it as much as I did because it sold the day I brought it in. I love when that happens! One of my last finds of the morning was this cute primitive green side table.
It’s hard to see in the picture, but it has a little railing on the back of the top, and the triangular base and bottom shelf is one-of-a-kind. I also bought this great weathered green screen to replace the old windows that displayed my vintage postcard banners. They sold quickly, and I thought this
screen would make a great display in their place.
And lastly, I’m super excited about a pair of cane chairs I bought from one of my favorite dealers. They have simple lines, but I think they will look perfect once updated with some paint and new fabric. I think I am going to try on them some milk paint I have leftover from another project; they would look great with a chippy finish.
I purchased another large piece over the weekend that will be my next major project, I’ll share more about that another time. For now, I’m going to enjoy a few minutes of quiet on this Sunday afternoon. Hope you all enjoyed some quiet this weekend as well.
