What I Found At The Springfield Extravaganza

I finally got a chance to sit down and do this post from Friday’s trip to the Springfield Antique Show and Flea Market.  I made sure to bring my camera.  I’ve got lots of pictures!  The first booth I actually stopped at and went into was Chic Unique.  She had lots of stuff I just loved.

I loved the way she stacked these chairs.

Loved this potting bench but it was way too big for me.

This next booth belonged to A Royal Nest.  Loved their stuff, too.

This one is for LuLu!  I thought of her as soon as I saw these and took the picture just for her.  {You’re welcome!}.

This booth belonged to Sue’s friends, Terri and Kathy of Nostalgia’s Cottage.  I bought something from them that I’ll show you below.  They had a great looking booth, too.

Debby met up with both Sue and I.  Thank God for cell phones!  Here is a picture of the three of us at Sue’s friends’ booth.

A great fabric that I found over a year ago and used on a chair makeover I did has been all over blogland since then.  Well, this event was no exception.  I must have seen at least 20 pieces of furniture with this fabric on it in a matter of 10 minutes.  Take a look.

I’m not sure which I liked more ~ the chair or the pillow sitting on it!

Here are the goodies I got.  I bought these clock faces from Sue’s friends’ booth.

From the first booth I stopped in I got this cloche and this letter E for my granddaughter.  I’ve been looking for a cloche about this size for this cake/cookie stand.  This one fits it perfectly.

After looking at some of these wire egg baskets at various booths, I finally found one that was more reasonably priced at $20.00.

Isn’t the little tag with the chick on it cute?  This will be getting a coat of ASCP French Linen and will be holding toilet paper in the bathroom.

And just because I was blocking it in most of the pictures, here is the cute tank I wore.

I got this from Paris Rags online shop after Carol at The Polka Dot Closet blogged about her antique and flea market, and happened to share their booth.  It got hot so I can tell you I was glad I chose this to wear.  Once I get a foldable cart, I’m ready for the next one!

Once again, so jealous! Why don't they have those here?????? How did you not go crazy. I think I would have spent a small fortune. Love the clock faces! You'll have to fill me in on the prices and such when I see you.

Kelly said...

Thanks for the tour of the flea market. I saw so many great things there! I once had my hand on that black and white bread and pastry sign you showed in one of your pics. It was at a local antique shop. I didn't get it and now I'm sorry I didn't. Your pic reminded me of it. Love the french pillows too. Have fun playing with your new goodies too!

sissie said...

Hi Kathy,
Guess that's one of the many advantages of living in Ohio. I would love to have been there but after our trip to The Depot in Concord, NC we were both broke! LOL!

Love you in that top. Too cute you are!

hugs
Sissie

LuLu Kellogg said...

OMG Kathy....thank you for taking the pic of the skellies! You are such a doll to have taken those so I could see!!

Going back to look at your pics again...what a great flea this was!

Sue said...

Kathy, I'm already looking forward to the Sept. show! I need to show you the cart I need to sell. We had fun, didn't we? I think next trip we take, we should go to Columbus. Notice I only "suggested" it? LOL. Far be it from me to act bossy! :-)

Pam said...

Yay! Lot of pictures. You would think I would have remembered some of these booths, but they don't look familiar now. I was going to use that same written fabric to redo a chair in my bedroom too! Glad you had a good time.

Wow! Great pics of the booths and fabulous things you saw! I'm FULL of ideas now!
Blessings, Lorraine
