Flea Market Finds: April

26 Apr

The Nashville Flea Market swings into high gear this month…warmer temperatures and sunshine mean the return of lots of vendors, which means more great vintage stuff! I stopped by on Friday morning to try to beat the rainy weather…but it turned out to be nice all weekend.  There is nothing I like better than wandering around the fairgrounds and searching through tables of old junk, hunting for just the right thing.

So…what ended up in my little red cart this month? I actually hate hauling a cart because it’s so cumbersome but I always buy so much that it’s become a necessity.IMG_1861 This was a great month. I found a fantastic pink metal child’s stove, PINK Pyrex bowls, a nice length of barkcloth (only $5!), a chalkware fish and bubbles, a green train case in great condition, a small red and white striped Hazel Atlas bowl, aqua bowl dated 1956,  yellow Pyrex fridgie, a planter in the shape of a guy playing the accordion, green fridge dish with glass lid, tiny pink swan planter and a cashew tin.

There are so many great vendors each month but Mister and I are always impressed with the vintage clothes and accessories that Susan Moon of Hang the Moon consignment (located at the flea in the Wilson building) brings.

Susan offers an eclectic blend of on-trend vintage…everything from shoes to 1950’s dresses to jewelry. She’s going to be a vendor at the Nashville Boogie next week (I can’t wait!) so if you missed her this weekend, you can shop there.

Susan Moon, me, and an awesome dress that is slightly too tiny for my waist...too bad I'm not built like a 1950's girl!

The Nashville Flea Market is open on the third weekend of the month. There are vendors from over 30 states…so you never know what will be there!

How about you…are you a flea market shopper? If so, what’s your favorite flea market find? (I have so many, I’m not sure I could choose!)
Happy treasure hunting!
