Nashville Flea Market

A couple of years ago, I stumbled onto something called a “blog” written by this lovely lady

I discovered one written by this gorgeous gal that very same day…

I remember feeling so inspired as I read through what they referred to as their posts.

And I was extra-ecstatic to find out that they both lived just a little ways up I-65 from me! (Rhoda was in Birmingham and Kim in Nashville.)

Fast forward to yesterday.
The three of us got together for a little fun in the sun at the
Nashville Flea Market, and I thought I’d share some photos of the stuff we saw, here on our blog today.

I had PLANNED on shooting lots of video footage- but because I forgot to put a memory card in my new point-and-shoot camera (Kodak EasyShare M580 from Office Depot), I was only able to take a handful of pics…

Rhoda posted lots more photos over at her blog.
Here are a few that feature some of my favorite finds of the day…

I fell in love with so many things!

But since I’m on a MAJOR simplification kick, I really didn’t plan on buying much.

I did, however, find an irresistible old ladder marked at $15- and ended up snaggin’ it from the vendor it belonged to for just ten bucks.

It just barely fit in my rental car…

We couldn’t figure out how to get the back seats to fold down, so we had to get creative.

(And, yes, I did make a blonde joke as Rhoda and I struggled to wedge it into place.)

I was instantly drawn to its unique shape…

And, of course, I totally dug the writing on the side of it too…

And all the little metal bits…

Not sure where it’ll live yet.

Maybe in the guest bathroom, up against the wall as a towel rack. (?)

Who knows!

For now, it’s hanging out in our dining room.

Along with our bed…


Gotta love life in a fixer!
