It was a hot time at the Flea Market in Flowood!

I talked Bob into taking me the the Mississippi Flea Market in Flowood on Sunday afternoon. It is a fun place, but it was extremely hot. We must have gone in the winter the first time, I did not remember the heat being a problem. 

There were lots of vintage things. 

I just loved this homemade cabinet. Would be great for the cabin!
 Notice the old Pyrex bowls on top.....we have several of these in different colors at the river. I just love them!

Have no clue what this was! Kinda creepy.

I saw several display shelves from liquor stores. The wood was great and the lettering on the side was really cool, but I just couldn't figure out what you could do with it.

Saw this little dude. I believe he is from the Ed Sullivan show.  According to Wikipedia his name was Topo Gigio (to learn more Wiki link)

There were several pieces of already painted furniture. Most I liked but did not think any were painted with chalk paint. The prices of the painted pieces were very high. I was looking for some small unpainted chests or end tables to paint.

I did love this rustic farm table and bench. Loved the red top!

My sentiments exactly!

In one section they had some Architectural salvage items. Some were really huge. I just loved this piece, but like I say , it was huge.

  After walking through the whole place, I just had to buy something. I found some cute wooden benches made from salvaged wood. I'm not showing you until I figure out how I am going to paint them! I hope you enjoyed our tour of the flea market..... without the sweat!

Glad you are enjoying my projects. Right now the heat is a problem, you just can't paint outside when it is 99 degrees! Thanks for the comment!!
