FleaMarket Fave!

Let me just say this was my first favorite find at last weekends Wildhare Vintage Flea Market.
I saw it during a quick once-thru on Friday.  Lucky for me I had some gals in my booth as Friday closed down, and the vendor with this sweet soap dish had closed up for the night.  

Saturday morning, I brought in a few new items to put in my booth, and got busy re-displaying some items.  Next thing you know, the doors opened and my booth was busy - yay!

Sometime, mid-morning, there was a lull in the crowd.  Lucky for me, no other vintage lover had spotted this creamy soap dish!  It is molded in the back where it hung on a wall.  It must have not seen much use, though.  It doesn't show much age, and the finish doesn't have a chip!

Yeah, I don't imagine moss holding my soap will be very effective for keeping the soap or my hands clean … but I couldn't resist, that Spring Fever is strong!
What did you find at the Wildhare Vintage FleaMarket, last weekend?! 
I'd love to see!!

Share a photo of your favorite find from last weekend, either by email or post on my Facebook page, and I'll choose some of them to share with all of you next week.  Sounds fun … don't you think?

What a weekend!!!

The Wildhare Vintage Flea Market was a hoot!

A sincere thank you to everyone who came!  I saw faces I knew that were newcomers to the market, fabulous gals & guys that have shopped my booth before, and friends.  I chatted about junk with people I just met, and had a huge smile when some said,  "I follow you on your blog" - I was soaring!

You may have imagined my Sunday to be like this…

along with Sunday services...understanding that prepping, loading, hauling, pricing, displaying, then re-loading and hauling what was left may have left a gal tired. ( uh, not to mention shopping other booths!)

Instead, I was doing this…

 cheering, feeding, and concessionstand volunteering during  my son's school basketball tournament.  Thank goodness I was not playing, I have a terrible lay-up!  I knew it would be a busy weekend, but it worked out like a dream! I have lovely junkin' friends who are also vendors who were so kind to cover my booth~I didn't miss a game~ and had a successful Fleamarket!

Later this week I'll plan to share some of my finds, work on sorting some Fleamarket 'leftovers' to post for sale plus re-organize what I have, and get my house back in order.  You know when you group dirty laundry by order of importance and run 1 load?  That's where I am tonight, and so thankful for it all!

Guess Who {Wildhare Vintage Flea 3/2014}

Guess who...
 -planned to take photos with my nice camera, just to share with you tonight...

but apparently, left the camera on yesterday while grabbing some 'sneak' shots, and drained the battery.

But Guess Who's Mom snapped some pics with her phone, after helping her daughter load, unload, and display 3 trucks worth of finds.  (A big thank you to my dad,  husband, and mother-in-law;  I couldn't do it without your help!)

Guess who...
 did get drawer pulls put on that sweet dresser...
 and then left the mall, drove to pick up a great kiddo from soccer, and arrived home...

to realize I still had a pencil I had been using for pricing stuck thru my messy bun.  
And Guess Who's pretty excited about tomorrow?!

Painted top vs. wood top

I asked followers on  Facebook  for input:

stained wood top or painted top?

I'm glad I took the advice!

(P.S.  Have you entered my giveaway on Facebook yet?)
