Flea Finds February

Can you say that title three times fast?!  So, yes...I know that it is March, and I know that I possibly forgot to even share my flea finds from January too...but friends, I always operate under the mantra Better Late Than Never!  So, here goes!

It's no secret...I'm a sucker for aqua and turquoise...and mid-century...this fan is yummy.



I'm also a sucker for collections or groupings:



Speaking of groupings, this spoon collection captivated me:


Spoon detail:


Next up, handmade gets me every time:

Mod hexalicious quilt and it was only $40!!!  Why didn't I buy this?!


This quilt had some great color combos and a mix of mod fabrics and silhouettes:



I passed this up, but bought the deer mixer cover below.



Next, on to the mid-century furniture that always makes me weak in the knees:

I actually purchased this, it was only $25!!

These barstools had already sold, I wanted them too!


This baby bed/ toddler bed could be great once cleaned up:

Ignore the scary stripper art behind it!! haha

I had a hard time leaving this little side table behind, all I would have to do was paint it and change out that orange fabric that was backing it, to make it amazing.



I went with patio furniture on my shopping list for our backyard patio that is in the works, but at $300, this wasn't going to fit the bill:

ModFruGal, if you see some homecrest and you have enough- send it my way!!

I'm actually most upset about not purchasing this worktable- it is EXACTLY what I need for my newest hobby/project that I've been working on, but I didn't even ask how much it was based on the vendor selling it is always out of control on pricing.

Seriously kicking myself for missing this.

This was a nice combo, but too rustic for my taste:



The vendor that was selling these vintage pull down maps usually has things priced right, but I didn't have a need for yet another map:



There was no shortage of taxidermy and horns:

This poor guy was HUGE, like 5 ft tall HUGE.



Also, on my shopping list was an extra large vintage cast iron sink for our upstairs bathroom renovation soon to be underway.  I found this one, but a drainboard in a bathroom is weird even for me:


I saved the my favorite score of the day for it's own post, coming up later!

The dealer wanted $300 for all three, I wasn't prepared to pay that much. But if you come across ANY white metal outdoor patio sets (Chairs, tables, etc.) that you don't want...send them my way!!
