Yay! Flea market time!
This weekend we headed down to the monthly Collectibles & Antiques Show held at the Metrolina Tradeshow Expo in Charlotte. I haven't been to a flea market in a while, and I had a few things to get on my list:
1) Floor lamp
2) Sewing supplies
and anything else that may tickle our fancy.
We are FOREVER searching for the right floor lamp for our living room. Given that our furniture is more old-world charm, we refused to get one of those utilitarian ones from IKEA and the likes.
There were lamps aplenty at the expo, but none caught my eye. But i did luck out on these fabulous binding strips and decorative ribbon, and a sizeable stack of gingham fabric! I think I might make a gingham quilt with them!
And then we found some lovely whiskey glasses and beer mugs at a dollar apiece! Fun!
The next one is at the end of the month. If you're in the area, swing by the Metrolina Tradeshow Expo at:
