My Flea Market Wish List…

14 Nov

I think we all have wish lists of things we hope to buy one day.

Mine always involve practical as well as fantasy items.  Like size zero AG jeans…even though I am not a size zero.

But none the less, I have dreamy items on my list.

Today I am headed to the monthly flea market and thought I’d share all the things I didn’t get to buy last time.

So here is my Flea Market Wish List.

Please don’t laugh because there are lots of non-sensible things on here.

And some items on my wish list require buying other things… before I can actually by them.  Makes no sense.  Am I crazy?

For example, these jars.  The pictures do not justify but they were HUGE.  Sold by Big Daddy’s antiques which has the best antiques by far at the Rose Bowl Flea Market.  I wanted these jars – bad!  But I had nowhere to put them?  So I must first buy more tables to accommodate these jars.  Oh, the insanity!

Ditto with this large wooden bowl.  Also sold by Big Daddy’s antiques. I know – they have the BEST stuff!  I love this wooden bowl but again…NOWHERE to put it.  I need to buy another table before I can justify buying this bowl.

Look at this trunk.  Gorgeous. I want 10 of these.  My dillema here is that we don’t have much room for these in our house.  Buying these might require buying a new house. I don’t think my husband would be too keen on that!

Another thing is that my dogs would pee on them.  They seem to think anything sitting on the floor is a fire hydrant.

Who doesn’t love all these old soda bottles?!?  The issue is that it may not be possible to use these as soap or lotion dispensers.  Wouldn’t they look so great as dispensers in the bathroom?  I have asked and asked and everyone says it’s not possible to convert these to functioning dispensers.

If you know any secrets, please let me know!

Now, I have no reason I shouldn’t have bought this! This would have been a perfect towel hanger!!  Geez! So mad I passed on this.  If I see this today, you can bet I’ll grab it!

Ug!  Again something I erroneously passed up on! Grrr…

I love chinese stools and had never before seen any printed like this.  Red and White! Usually they are solid colors.  I always find great things but walk passed them thinking I’ll come back (because I don’t want to carry them miles and miles around at the flea market).

And what happens? At the end of the flea market, I am too tired to go back or forget where they were. These would have been perfect outside on our patio!  Boo hoo!

I LOVED this table!  But it was too expensive.  Maybe I can make something like this one day?  Just put a piece of wood on a stand?  Something like this would also look great on our patio!

Later when I got home and was looking at my pictures, I realized I missed out on this great rug.  I was so obsessed with the table I never even noticed the rug at the flea market!  How fun is that!!?  That would have matched one of our bedrooms perfectly.  I’m not afraid of color!

Saved the most delusional for last.  I sew now maybe once a month.  Maybe even once every two months.  Life and work get in the way.

But somehow I fantasize I’m going to be this hip fashion designer and design blow your mind outfits everyday.  Here is where these mannequin come in.  Wouldn’t they look unbelievable in my fantasy modern so hip and cool fashion studio? Ubber Amazing! A girl can dream!

These vintage mannequins sold by Big Daddy’s antiques of course! I heart them so much!

Do you have Wish Lists like me? Help!

At least I wasn’t crazy enough to buy these things.

    No worries! I get accused of wanting nearly everything ever made ;) It’s a curse!

    I love those glass soda bottles & it sucks that they don’t work… is the opening too big for a bedbath&beyond soap pump nozzzle? Hmm… maybe there’s a way to make them at home? I was reading somewhere about a technique on frosting glass (i’ll have to hunt around for it and send it your way!) and Perrier bottles and even old beer bottles make fantastic soap/lotion dispensers. I’m actually working on an eco post that features my little homemade dish soap bottles so i’ll try to hurry up and get that out so you can see what i’m talking about <3


    PS: the trunk and table… ohmygosh! makes total sense that they're on you're list – awwwwsome!

    I can’t wait to see the frosting! Is frosting glass similar to etching? I am currently working on etching some wine glasses. I put initials on them and I’m waiting for it to dry. Woot! I’ll let you know how it turns out! I can’t wait to see your eco post on your dish soap bottles!! I need some so can’t wait to see what you have done!
