I swoon for chippy paint, a gorgeous patina and a great song!!! I love great music (read: Bruce Springsteen & Otis Redding), white lilacs, walking in freshly fallen snow, the Golden Girls, road trips and the fall!!!
Because of the Springsteen concert, I spent last weekend in Connecticut. While Saturday was all about Bruce, Sunday was all about shopping. And what better place to shop than a flea market? This stop: The Elephant’s Trunk Country Flea Market in New Milford, CT.
First stop on my road trip……breakfast!!!
About 90 minutes after leaving my hotel, I arrived at the flea market.
This is just one of at least 50 aisles for shoppers to walk down at the ET Flea.
I love the look of vintage metal signs.
Love these buckets!!!
What a blast from the past!!! This would look totally cool in a vintage kitchen!!!
Isn’t this adorable??? It would work inside or outside to hold books, plants, a bucket of flowers or as an extra seat!!! Too cute!!!
Some of the new items you can purchase at the ET Flea include plants.
And more plants with pretty flowers!!!
Don’t just take my word for it about how great the ET Flea is…..local cable shows were there to see what all the fuss is about, too!!!
My scores from the ET Flea: an old gym locker basket for $20.00 and a blue & white floral sugar bowl for $3.00. Add that to the $2.00 admission fee and all I spent at the sale was $25.00!!! I love thrifty days like this!!!
