Oh my heavens! I had heard that the What Cheer Flea Market was amazing but I had NO IDEA! WOW! Over 700 vendors and 20 acres of almost anything that you could possibly want or need! And I mean AN-Y-THING! We went on Saturday and every booth still had a lot of stuff! I was afraid that by going 3 days into it that we’d have missed out on a bunch of stuff but nope, there was still plenty there for us to check out! My mom and I both found a lot of things that we thought were cool but I don’t think we bought too much. For some reason, my mom has this thing right now about salt and pepper shakers so she picked up a few and I ended up grabbing one on my way out the door.
We picked up a lot of miscellaneous little things that I’ve already sorted out and put to good use. I got a great deal on an old coffee can. And we found some amazinggg…. things! My mom found this bench for her front yard that was soooo cool and super affordable. It had some slats on it and was going to be perfect to hold her birdhouse that she found at the flea market too. I didn’t get a picture of the bench but I did of the birdhouse!! How cool is this!?!
Ok, enough about my mom’s treasures! The 2 things I picked up that I want to share with you today are my new desk and this really cool old mailbox! But I can’t show you what I’m going to do with them quite yet. This is the here and now of my treasures. I’ll post something a little later after I get done what I have in mind for them.
My new desk! I can’t wait to get my hands on it! I’m super, super excited about it!
And here is my old wooden mailbox! I have big plans for it! Next time you see it, you may not recognize it!
If you’re interested, the next What Cheer Flea Market is the first part of October. It’s on my calendar already and I will be there fo’ sure!
Enjoy the last few days of summer! School is right around the corner for us here in Iowa!
