Flea markets have become one of my favorite places to find unique and fun things to fill our home! I'm not that great at it, but I love being able to bargain with the vendors and find affordable furniture and decor items within our budget. Yesterday I went with my mom, Kelli and good friends- Katie and Amanda to the Long Beach Flea Market to find some treasures- here's what I found!
Top left- a pretty blue and gold frame! ($6!)
Lower left- a shelf I will use for necklaces, earrings, perfume, etc! ($5!)
Right- A red shelf table thing! It's in the second bed room to add some color to the room. ($20!)
Here are some of my other favorite finds I have found over the past couple of years-
This is a pie safe they used back in the day to store pies. The punched tin allowed air to come through and cool the pies. I got it at the Long Beach flea market and use it as a dresser in our bedroom. Eventually I want to sew some fabric curtains to put behind the glass.
I love these teal end tables! I also got them at the LB flea market for only $25 each!
I got this trunk at the LB flea market ($30!) and have put some knick-knacks in our living room.
Since Greg has started working for the fire department I have found a love for all things fire related- fire helmets, fire engines, etc etc. The lower left picture is a fire extinguisher I got at the Irvine flea market. One day I would like to turn it into a lamp but for now it sits next to the trunk. The middle picture is a fire helmet. I loved this helmet because the front shield has SDFD- San Diego Fire Department - on it. And the right picture is a just a fun chicken wire cage with a cute bird on the top :)
This is the yellow life saver I got earlier this month! It's hung up on a small wall space above the stairs.
If you're in southern California check out your local flea market to find some of your own treasures!
