Hello! I told you all in my last post about my “heavenly trip” to the Canton First Monday Flea Market recently, so now it’s time to show you a little more of what I found there.
Just about all of the market treasures have made their way up to my booth. I spent some time last week working on a major rearrangement and introducing some “back-to-school” themes into my space.
This cute little vintage child’s school desk and chair is actually from my Antique Alley trip back in April, I have just been holding onto it until now. It did get a little freshening up with some whitewashed paint on its base and mineral oil to the top and chairs. The ladder though is from Canton and makes for a fun display of a vintage childrens’ block banner I made.
The block images were some free graphics I found online, as well as these vintage ABC story flashcards.
The pictures of the little animals on these cards are just adorable. They would be great strung together for a baby shower banner, or framed in a child’s room. Here, I stuck them into this awesome old concrete broom head that came from Canton.
I’ve already showed you the bread cart . . . well here it is in my space stacked full of some vintage fabric scraps I have, as well as some photography of my hubby’s.
(For extra credit, can you find the little shot of me in this picture?)
I sold most of my fabric remnants last summer, but have this small bit still left. I’ve been waiting for a good way to display them, and the bread rack is the perfect fit.
I always find great figurines down in Canton, and they sell well in my space.
People always seem to quickly grab any porcelain dogs I find, and horse decor is always popular too. I found a pair of these hand-painted chalk horses that are now on display in my booth.
This lovely trinket box was a fun find! It’s metal, but made to look like needlepoint.
I love the faded colors and floral motif.
Another unique find from the market was a collection of old advertising fans. The artwork on these is just awesome, don’t you wish businesses still gave these out?
There were a few from the national parks system, like this one with an image of Yosemite.
And then some religious themed, with images of the Last Supper and Jesus praying in the Garden of Gethsemane.
Everything in my space got turned around and it’s packed full now!
I’m liking the new arrangement, but of course, it’s always nice to have things sell and leave the space too!
I hope you enjoyed the brief tour and all of my finds 🙂
