Fancy Flea 2012

This morning I got up and got all ready for the Fancy Flea. Everyone that was supposed to come cancelled except one person. So it was just Valerie  and I. But we were not deterred....

Isn't this chandelier gorgeous?

I loved this booth! Cracked Up Jewelry. She takes broken china and makes it into jewelry.

A lot of you know the Polka Dot Closet Blog... Well here is Carol at the Fancy Flea.

She is so sweet in person... I bought several things from her. I could have taken it all home. Lovely booth.

The day was fabulous. After we left we decided to drive around the historic part of town. We spotted this beautiful swan. She never left her nest as she continued to reach for nesting material. It was so pretty in Lakeland.
I got a few goodies. You didn't think I came home empty handed did you? I got this hat stand from the Polka Dot Closet.

Another hat stand I got from the Polka Dot Closet.

This little car was so cute. So I drove it home with me..

I got this table for my dining room.

This dress is from Paris Rags. I love all of her stuff. 

This is what I bought from Cracked Up Jewelry.

Two pillows I couldn't pass up.... We had a fab time! We walked and talked with vendors. I recognized a few from when my Mom and I had an antique booth. It was FUN... I wish you could have came.... But, since you couldn't... I brought you back a little something!
This is what I brought back for one of you.... You get an adorable little Boyd's Bear, a vintage sachet filled with lavender and vanilla (from the Polka Dot Closet), two amazing smelling soaps, and my personal favorite... 

 A vintage inspired bottle cap necklace.... All you have to do is leave a comment in the comment section and I will draw a name. That's it easy peasy. The give away will close Wednesday. Soooo I hope you win.  

Love to you all,
Amy Jo

    I will be having a Mother's Day giveaway this next Friday with glimpses of whats up for grabs all this week. :)

  5. OMG! It was so great to meet you! Wow, I love everything you bought,the dress form Paris Rags is fabulous! The next show is in November and that is when my son is getting married so I will just be a shopper and not a vendor, that will be fun too!

  8. I started looking for pictures of the fancy flea on Saturday. I found a face book page to get an idea of all the wonderful stuff. Wish I could have gone, but I live to far away.

  9. The Fancy Flea seems like a blast! I am so happy that you posted about it. I have been hearing so much from Carol over on her blog! You sure did get some really neat things. I like them all.
