Some Marketplace Shopping

IMG_2382
I looked yesterday for some wooden yardsticks for a project I am working on…never found a single one, but I did find some great pops of color in my favorite antique marketplace.  Its called The Marketplace and it has a mix of old and new together so it is easy to see how things might mix in your home.   This yellow desk was awesome!  Love how deep it is and the paint color is great.  And the knobs are a cobalt ceramic print!  And it was only $99.

I loved this berry basket carrier…very practical.

This chest was a good size and plain design, just my style.

And this blue chair…I am sure I head it calling my name.

These cute little chairs hung on the wall to hold treasures were wonderful.  I did this probably 25 years ago in my home with a child’s chair.

I love this simple solid background with pieces of doily spread out in three corners.

And this corkboard…covered with burlap!  And the thumbtacks are vintage buttons!

Love this one with the fancy frame!

This booth is full of new things but I couldn’t resist the salmon pink candle sticks/pedestals…and look at those green and yellow chairs in the background.

Oh, what great treasures at that place! I love the bright colors. I am not into pale or pastel much. But my fav color is yellow and that desk was gorgeous! I could see that blue chair next your glider and also those coral candle stands. Did you get out of there without buying anything? How? LOL!

It's so much fun to go to places like that. I'll take the desk, the berry basket carrier, and the fancy-framed corkboard.
