Flea Market Finds: October Edition

The Nashville Flea Market is notoriously big each October. I waited until the last minute on Sunday and wound up with some great deals since vendors were ready to haggle! AND, I am pleased to report I am getting better at haggling! I got a record player table (it's just a little stand with some metal record holder thingies underneath it) for half price and managed to get dollars shaved off everything else I found.

Here's my finds from this weekend (minus the record table which is hanging out in the garage until I can clean it up). On Friday, I stopped by a new thrift store on my way home from work and bought 6 adorable vintage dresses! After I got home from the flea market, Melissa brought me a lamp I almost bought at her yard sale awhile back but I hemmed and hawed and later regretted not getting it. It will need re-wiring for sure (mom?) but I'm really excited about it. It's way more feminine in shape than I usually like but I feel like the roughness of the brass balances out the feminine detailing.

Dresses, japanese (?) vase (it's kinda orla kiely, don't you think?), fancy decanter with 2 small glasses, cute glass/turquoise glass, flour and sugar glass jars, and a wooden kitchen rack with small hooks.

Some close-ups:

Not too shabby, huh?

More on the dresses later... I am keeping one of them for myself but I'm not 100% sure on how I want to sell the others. They will most likely end up in my booth but I am not certain yet!
