As the Yankee and I are traveling around, participating in various markets and antiques and collectibles shows, I'm finding that there are some venues I like more than others.
The Raleigh Flea Market has become one of my favorite locations to sell–and buy–from.
You just can't beat the diversity of goods–and the creativity of some of the vendors–that you'll find there.
Meet Connie–an occasional vendor at this flea market. Her creations are sure to delight the eye.
That's her peeking from behind one of her terrific garden structures made from old windows.
I've seen this idea in magazines for a couple of years, but Connie has come up with a few of her own sweet flourishes to add to the concept.
Isn't that miniature chandelier the cutest thing!
And how clever is this? A ceiling light cover transformed into a cloche.
Green is one of my very favorite colors, and this particular shade looks fabulous on this bead-board-vintage-door bench.
Look how chic these wooden candle holders have become with a fresh coat of paint and bobeches and crystals.
This old window sash makes an adorable display shelf.
I wonder if the Yankee and I can find time between shows, and the multitudes of projects we're in the midst of, to build a display case like the one below–a marvelous mix of vintage ceiling tins and a chippy old door frame.
You just know we're bound to have an old door frame or two–or ten–in our stash of salvage in one of the barns.
Sooo many ideas; so little time!
Did you notice that Connie's specialty happens to be the creative reuse of old window sashes, doors, and salvage materials?
Here at the Brambleberry Cottage, savvy salvage reuse happens to be our passion.
Whether we're creating lamps from chippy balusters or rusty gears, or using vintage window sashes and salvaged beaded board, our goal is to create unique, one-of-a-kind items that exude character and charm.
How have we done so far?
