Flea Market Finds

I cruised past Vinnies a week or two ago and could not get a park, I always just keep driving and try again next time, lucky I did as the next day I spotted these Bentwood chairs that were apparently delivered on closing time the night before. I was about to purchase new Bentwood chairs in white but at $365 each I figured these $20 ones will do just fine. I wont need to get all stressed when the kids knock them over and scratch them as I know they will. Now, all I needed to do was find 4 more and give them a lick of white paint.

Then, my good friend and I happened across these beauties at this wonderful place. They had 6 for $400, I offered him $350 (plus their standard 20%) and walked out one happy chappy. Some new shots of my new dining room to come soon.

 This little wooden box wasn't a flea market find as such but I did find it in our shed. The kiwi in the family likes in on display even if it is in the bathroom. I teamed it with some glass jars found at oppys and garage sales.

These little vintage books were found in Wagga last school holidays. They are lovely and the kids love them.

Some retro canisters for the kitchen cupboard were found at a garage sale for $5. Loving those colours, a bit different to all the brights you usually see.

And some Fowler jars for $1 each....gotta love that. 

As always linking up with Sophie.

Have a happy start to the week everyone!
