Whenever we drive to see my mom in Oklahoma, we plan a few pit stops at flea markets and antique stores along the way. I typically find an item or two but nothing to brag about. This trip however was different. I lucked upon lots of unique pieces at great prices. Most of what I found will go in my Etsy shop but I am keeping a couple of items for myself.
Staffordshire dogs are really popular right now and I found a couple of different dog pieces. The first was this single dalmatian figurine. I know these were originally sold in a set as bookends but as a single it makes a great decor pieces for a bookshelf.
The other dog pieces I found was this set of dalmatian bookends. I’m tempted to keep these but into the Etsy shop they’ll go.
This blue and white lidded jar is so cute. If it wasn’t for its petite size you’d think it was a garden stool. I snapped this piece up for $5.00 and I’m going to keep it for myself.
I’m also on the look out for brass trays and this one had beautiful details. It’s pretty large in size and would make a great bar tray.
I love milk glass and see these bowls quite often but have never purchased one. The embossed fruit motif on the bottom is so intricate and pretty and the bowl is super heavy.
I don’t know how long the brass pineapple trend is going to last but I keep buying them if I can find them at a good price. I already own two so I’m going to be listing this lidded piece in the shop after I clean it up a bit.
This pretty brass letter holder has me in a quandary…sell or keep? The design is really pretty and you can tell its a great quality piece. Since I have good luck selling letter holders in my shop I’ll probably sell this one.
I also found a silver-plated one that needs some TLC. It was less than $3.00 so if it doesn’t clean up well I’ll just keep it.
My favorite find of the trip was this ceramic elephant stool. It’s in great condition and I practically stool it from the dealer with the price they had on it.
Don’t you just love my latest flea market finds?
For those of you living in Memphis, you might want to check out the Antique Mall Warehouse. I found most of the chinoiserie and brass pieces there.
