I think I need to do a better job sharing my purchases for our home. I always share videos on Instagram Stories of my flea market shopping trips but I always forget to share photos of everything I bought. So today I am going to start a new series called My Finds This Week so I can show what I bought this past weekend and where it was styled in our home.
*Please note. This is not a weekly series because I do not buy things for our house every week. (I had to put that in just in case my husband is reading this.)
I went to two places this weekend to find things for our home. The first was @vintagejunktionla. Judy Davis has a huge warehouse and outdoor area that holds fifty years of estate sale purchases. You can only imagine how many wonderful things she has. You can visit her on Instagram here. I also went to the Long Beach Flea Market which is held the third Sunday of every month. Their website can be found here. I also want to mention there was another sale that I wasn’t able to go to at Junk Style Design but I was able to buy something. More about that later!
My husband has commented a lot lately that the light in all of our rooms is inadequate. So I purchased this white wood and wicker table from @vintagejunktionla and moved the reading lamp from our piano to right next to the couch. I also bought some blue vintage books.
Lately, I have been slightly fixated with old clocks. Most of them don’t work but this one did and I just love it.
On Saturday my friend Judy from @vintagejunktionla went to the sale at Junk Style Design and found this cabinet for me.
It is now in our living room although I can’t seem to decide where to put it.
The corbel on top of the cabinet is one of a pair I bought at the Long Beach Flea Market on Sunday. The other one found a temporary home on top of my mom’s old sewing cabinet.
Eventually, I hope to use these to build an antique shelf.
I found this blue milk can at Long Beach and I love how the color fits in so well in my living room.
I also found a third antique mason jar for the top of the table. It’s the one with the grid pattern. It was $8.
I am always buying chenille bedspreads to use to make pillows. But I think I had better stop buying them. I own six now and I am yet to make a single pillow. My issue is that I am having a hard time cutting into such a beautiful bedspread!
I also bought two tin ceiling panels. These both need to be cleaned but eventually, they will find a place in our home. I could hang them on a wall, put them on a piece of furniture or who knows …
Aren’t they just fabulous?
Well, those are my finds for this week. I hope you enjoyed seeing the treasures I found.
