Sunday Morning at the Ventura Flea Market!

As we awoke this Sunday morning, it was dark, gray and very foggy!!
If you remember last month, it was warm, windy, and we were having horrific fires here in Southern California.
What a difference a month makes.

Here are a few shots from the Sunday, Ventura Flea Market. Now the booth with the guitars is what my husband Mark likes to look at.
Me, not so much. I of course like all things girly.

This is why we get along so well, he has his stuff and I have mine.


The booth with all of the Christmas ornaments was so great!! I got some vintage lights in the original boxes. I will never plug them in, but they will look really cute just sitting in a Christmas vignette. (Can't wait to start that)






Love all the vintage light fixtures, and this iron bed was so pretty.

Besides the Christmas lights, I managed to buy 2 boxes of vintage ornaments for only $10. I bought a beautiful iron wash stand from Jennifer Gray (www.theoldpaintedcottage.com) I think I will be using it for Thanksgiving as a champagne bucket next to the table.
I also got a great shabby window frame, yet to be determined what to do with it.

I think I will post my finds for you tomorrow, along with some shots I took at Garden Memories.
I thought you might like to see some of my signs hanging in the shop. www.gardenmemoriesgifts.com.

I am leaving on my morning walk, but I will be back tomorrow with the goods.
Have a great Monday!!!

What fun. I've banned myself from all flea market/antique malls until January. I could spend my entire Xmas budget in one stop!

It was so foggy and grey yesterday and I just love days like that since we don't get them very often. I'll bet it was nice and cool in Ventura. I can't wait to see all of your finds :)

Hugs,

I'm sure you'll take gray and foggy over warm & fires! I always love it when you take use with you to the flea market. I haven't been to a good flea market in about a year! I live vicariously through you!!
