Too Much Junk in the Trunk!

OK... So you can never have too much junk- I was just fishing for a good title to capture your attention! As any Antiqueaholic will tell you, there is always room in the trunk (or on top of the car, or in the floor boards - You get the picture)...
I thought I'd share some of the items I purchased on Saturday at the Raleigh Flea Market. This flea is open EVERY weekend (except a few weeks during the N.C. State Fair). It's a great market and I never leave empty handy (please refer to that Antiqueaholic prior comment). Every Saturday and Sunday from early light to 5 pm or so, vendors display their wares in hopes of ensnaring innocent bystanders:)Two of my favorite vendors were there - These specific dealers only come a couple times a year so they always have fresh, new stock to plunder in. The miniature soda cans, life savers, and chewing gum are going to be made into some funky jewelry and the N is for a little project - And because my last name is Newton. The case that all of this is displayed in was another fabulous purchase- The green velvet is to die for! I got the daguerreotype for a steal ($12) and it's also in a wonderful velvet case. If you look closely you can also see the small jewelry case that I just couldn't resist. The sparkly seed beads will be used for tiny crafty art work ... Last, but certainly not least, is the lovely cherub wall hanging... The piece is European but not terribly old - Nevertheless, it strikes a cord with me for its vintage patina and sweet expression.

So, I hope I've clued you in on one of the best flea markets in the South. It has a section JUST FOR OLD STUFF so no worry about wholesale tube socks or $1 junk boxes - Unless that's your thing... If so, there's plenty of that further along in the fairgrounds standard vendors.

Have a great week and don't forget to stop by sometime in N.C.! (or visit Flotsam & Jetsam for more antiquing and junking forays)...

I used to set up a both at the fairground years ago. It has lots of great vendors and great return customers. There's always something for everyone. I just love the treasures you found.
