i hope there are no fleas here.


This past Saturday, I went to the flea market Mile High Marketplace with some dear friends, Megan & Ari. Megan claims that they changed the title from flea market to class it up a bit. Good effort. 

Here are some fun finds & photos from the day! The only purchases of the day were my bag of vintage thread spools and Megan's vintage pyrex. Not too shabby :)


Have you found any fun things at any garage sales, flea markets, estate sales, etc lately?

love.

  1. Love these pics! Oh wow, ViewMaster... takes me back.

    Wish we had a fun "marketplace" like that here! I bought two vintage Midcentury modern chairs off craigslist this week-- so excited about them. Can't wait to find the perfect fabric to recover them in!

    happy to know that you're having fun there!

  4. I'm visitng my hometown this week and am having a blast hitting up all of my favorite thirfting spots and flea markets. I'm always on the lookout for vintage blue mason jars and vintage cmaeras for my husbands's collection. Hopefully I'll hit the jackpot this week.

  5. Oh how I love flea markets, yard sales, etc.! Sadly, I've done very little so far this year. Mostly thanks to the Saturday morning brunch kick we've been on. Kinda runs into prime 'saling time! Hopefully soon though...hopefully soon...

  6. Hey Im from Denver, too! I have been to Mile High once but it was a couple years ago and kind of in the off season. I wasn't impressed at all really. There were only a couple vintage booths and most of the stuff was overpriced. But it looks like maybe I should give it another shot. It sure looks great in the commercials haha : )

  8. Yes, I'm in love with that typewriter!!! I found a bunch of stuff at the Pasadena flea market for my kids bathroom. Can't wait to go back! I've vowed not to by anything "new" to decorate my bedroom and my girls bedroom ;)

  10. I was shooting my cousins senior pics a few saturday mornings ago. We were talking prom talk and how she had found a dress for $400 and knew her mother couldn't afford it. I was on the road to take her back home and we passed a garage sale that had a rack of prom dresses..... we turned the truck around and went. She found a prom dress that was worn once at last years prom. $75. I had just done a show the night before and still had the cash on hand. Bingo!

    Last summer I stopped at a garage sale of whom I was familiar with. To my surprise as I walked up the long drive (we live in the country) there was a serger machine in the wide open space! It wasn't hiding or stuck in the corner. $40. I had nothing to loose for that price. I was just starting to save for one too.

    Works like a charm. I taught myself how to use it and thread it with the thin manual that came with it. I couldn't watch the video that came with it, it was VHS and I don't own a VCR player anymore......

    I don't garage sale often. One. we live in the country and the drive ways are long and it takes a lot of time. Two. I have two boys that are 8 and 11 and most boy clothes at that age have holes, so I don't bother.

    But when I do go, I find awesome finds.....
