A Fall Flea Market & A Giveaway Win!

The big selling day at our local Flea Market is Sunday, so today
we filled the back of the pick-up truck with some of the treasures
I've been hoarding collecting at sales, and rented a table to sell. 
I love hitting the thrifts, church & estate sales.  It really is one of my our
 favorite hobbies.  But eventually it's all too much and time to do some selling!
So here I am!  The table behind me and in front of me is ours.

Of course Mr. Retro did most of the lifting and I did most of the pricing.
Whoops, I was so busy trying to get the table I cut his head off. 

It was really chilly this morning, but also a gorgeous sunny day.
We sold a lot of stuff ~ not as much as we hoped ~ but we were satisfied.
Besides, it won't be our last sale.  Mr. Retro is already "talking up" having 
a fall yard sale, and I want to do a mostly "linens" sale sometime soon.
But someplace warm and indoors!
Do you have someplace local where you sell?
Would love to hear about it!
Now onto my giveaway win!  I'm so excited to show you the
great package I recently received from Chris at Perfectly Printed .
I'm a lucky woman to be the winner of Chris' generous giveaway .
You'll see why in the photos below.
She was giving away a sweet pillow she made, but when I looked into
the box I knew there was certainly more than a pillow in there.

& she's thanking me! 
All came wrapped up so pretty with fall colored ribbons.
The cutest set of placemats, a decoupage (hope I got that term right) Halloween décor block,
and a precious pumpkin made from canning jar lids.  So creative!!!
It has really added to my Fall-Halloween décor, as I only had a few decorations.
I have a house guest coming Thursday, guess what placemats will be on the table?

& of course, this perfect Halloween witchy pillow.  You can't look at it
without SMILING!  I LOVE IT! 
Well, I love it all.  I can't thank Chris enough for her
kind and generous spirit, and I so admire the "talent"!
If you don't already follow her, click on the link above to visit her blog.
You'll be glad you did! 
Have a healthy & happy Halloween week!
Thanks for the visit.


  1. Congratulations on a successful sale and your fantastic goodies from Chris. How nice that she also tucked in some other things along with your pillow.

  2. Is that pink Pyrex I see on your table?! Bet that got snatched up pretty quickly :-)


    1. Ha! You've got Pyrex eyes, lol! Yup, don't fault me... how many Pyrex casseroles can I keep? Besides, the pink was so not perfect. A dealer (that I like) snatched that up. A butter dish was gone before I got to take the photo. Did you spy the totally white Pyrex on the other table? It's unique, so I think I'll pull it and keep it.

  3. Yay for a successful sale and a fun giveaway. That pumpkin made of canning jar rings is wonderful. And the pillow...its adorable!

  4. I've been thinking of renting a table at the local flea market but haven't yet. Glad you had a good sale. Love your win and oh that pillow is just adorable!!

  5. Your sale looks like so much fun! I think that's part of the fun, collecting and loving some things for a while and then selling them(well only some things that you can part with, that is!) and getting more (new to you) treasures!!! Fun fun! Congrats on the sweet pillow from Chris, she sent such cute things along too!! :) :) Hugs! xo Holly

  6. Your pillow is adorable...The flea market looks like a blast..

  7. I'm so happy that you won Chris's giveaway! She's such a generous blogger friend. And the pillow is so darn cute! Your table at the flea market looks like one I would make a b-line for!
    Hope you did well,
    Erica :)

  8. Good for you, a successful sale and a lovely giveaway win. I would have loved to see your table!

  9. Fun, fun, fun! I wish I could have seen what you were selling! I think I spy a pink Pyrex bowl? I haven't tried to sell anything for years , but really should start!!
    Chris was very generous and filled it with lots of fun things! Love the pillow! Very cute!

  10. Congratulations on the giveaway win. It's sooo cute.

  11. I love everything retro.
    Your blog is beautiful!

  12. So fun you won Chris' giveaway!! Such a sweet pillow and cute goodies! Have a great week! xo Heather

  13. I have thought about renting a table at flea markets, but never have. I may have to take a stab at it.
    I am glad to have found your blog and have enjoyed looking around and reading your posts.

  14. I think you should have a clothesline sale !!!! I always love your banner.

  15. Oh I do miss my flea market days! That's a lot of work though! Glad your sale went well ;-)

  16. Bless you sellers who brave the cold to sell your treasures! It always surprises me how the sellers at our flea market are setting their stuff up these days in 32 degree weather. Gonna miss it when it closes for the season on Thanksgiving weekend. Hope you sold lots of stuff and didn't bring anything back home!

  17. Hi Pam, looks like you had lots of fun at the flea market, I'm glad it went well for you. I love that Witchy Pillow you won, congrats! Have a great week,


Your comments make me smile! Thanks.
