I loveeeeeeee a good ole flea market, antique show, and especially yard sales. One of my favorite places to go is Metrolina Antique and Trade Show. Right before i walk into Metrolina’s gates, my heart beats faster, I get a little flushed, and I find myself pushing people out of the way (not really…. but I think about it)!! I live for finding great deals and cast offs that nobody else wants. Thanks to my buddy, The Nester, and her encouraging words, next show (June 3,4,5) I am going to have my own outdoor space to sell my stuff! I will be selling lots of painted and distressed furniture, things I have created, and things I have found and spruced up. Here are some examples……..
I love to find things that just need a little paint and a lot of love. Most of the things I buy come from yard sales, Goodwill, The Habitat Store, Salvation Army and cost next to nothing. I did splurge on the cow, and spent a whole quarter (no wait…. the Nester had to let me borrow a quarter, so she actually spent the big bucks and owns the cow)!
I use either spray paint or regular craft paint depending on the piece and the color I want. I even use whatever paint I am using at the moment to paint furniture.
