Getting lost in an old part of town on Sunday took us past a flea market I have wanted to visit for forever now! Mostly overpriced antiques and a truckload of vintage Barbies (anyone have $200 for an original 1970's barbie??) inside but a few cheaper (read: junkier) vendors outside. An old fan caught my eye but wasn't the right color. Another one, smaller, the perfect color was found a few moments later...hallelujah! I had to drudge up every coin in my wallet to pay for it since my husband, conveniently, had no money. One $5 purchase was forgivable in his eyes but the hundreds of vintage books and jewels I wanted to bring home later was in-con-thieve-able (sorry, that's my best Princess Bride impersonation!:}.
Since beginning my search for vintage inspired pieces to re-do our master bedroom in a modern/vintage theme, this is my second purchase and so far each was serendipitously made in St. Louis, MO...the same place I was made! ;) Now that I'm gaining momentum in the design of the room, I'm just waiting for the hubs to find inspiration to paint the room!
Honey, I found an extra $5 in my wallet...nothing like cold, hard cash for a kick in the pants, eh?! ;)
