Paris Flea Market, Antiques, and Garden Memories

Happy Saturday!!
Here are a couple of views of the Paris Flea Market in Carpinteria.
It was a lovely morning. Very warm for this time of year.
It was so much fun, I got to see my friends Karen, and Jennifer Grey. Karen was selling and Jennifer was shopping. You all know Jennifer, from

I bought this pretty old box made in Italy. It just called to me. I know you love to know the prices at flea markets. The lady had it marked at $19, but let me have it for $10.

I got this great old frame for $10 as well.
Not sure what I will do with it yet, but I see future project. We also stopped into one of my favorite little antique shops while we were in Carpinteria, and I picked up these cute Victorian Valentines.
Love these!!!

Next stop of the day, Garden Memories in Ventura, where I dropped off more goodies I made for Barbara. Mark and I went to have lunch, and when I came back Barbara had set up my pretties so cute, I just had to take pictures to show you. By the way, Barbara just had her first grand baby. Congrats Barbara!!! He is adorable.

Some of my boxes.
Some banners and a cupid pick.Some glittery initials.More boxes.

One of my signs, and banner/flags.

My Valentine banner/flags.
My boxes right next to a Cody Foster box.

Now Mark and I are off to a neighbor's get together.

I hope you are having a fun weekend!

Just loved everything! What a fun way to spend a weekend! I will love to have an awesome flea market like that here. Yesterday our local paper was advertising our annual FLEA MARKET at the Western Fairgrounds, my husband and I headed that way immediately after our morning coffee escapade, but I was very disappointed to find out the “flea market” was actually just a “gun flea market"... Nothing interesting. What a fake!

Have a lovely day, dear Rosemary!


Cindy ~ My Romantic Home said...

Your boxes are beautiful! I love the blue and white ottoman in the first picture!

Not everyone can look at an empty picture frame and see potential. What a beautiful world!

Love all the boxes! The one you bought and the ones you created! All gorgeous.

Linda said...

Hi Rosemary, great finds and all your pretties look wonderful in Barbara's shop. I like the way they are sprinkled among her other items.
Sunday was our faire day...foggy and cold. Still had fun and found some treasures too. Linda
