Flea Market Done Right

Last weekend, armed with a list of furniture we needed for our apartment, I headed out to Charlotte, NC with MB for the Metrolina Expo "Antiques Spectacular" Flea Market. Apparently, this Flea does an antique special show over the first weekend in November (maybe also April?). Well let me tell you peeps, I got three pieces I am so happy with. Please, step into our apartment and I will show you around...

This sweet little upholstered chair is exactly what I was looking for in the bedroom. Priced at $269, I got this little jobbie for $75.

This hall/entryway table is made from pieces of an old house: old Wainscotting boards (the top), parts of staircase banisters (the legs) and room molding (the trim). Cool, no?

And finally, this is possibly my favorite (unfortunately not my husband's, but I think it's growing on him) - an old shoe display rack with swivel wheels on the bottom that allow for 360 mobility! Doesn't it look cute next to that little side table with lamp? Hooray for the brown wood corner of this room!
