So my treasure hunting obsession continues... I have been watching out for Tole trays, I see them at antique and sometimes thrift stores, and they are usually much more than I want to spend. I spotted this one at "A Classy Flea" in Marietta GA. On my trip up to Chattanooga I decided to stop in Marietta, outside of Atlanta, cause I had found a GW not far from 1-75 on my GPS, well the GW was not that great but in the same shopping strip there was this wonderful little treasure of a place, "A Classy Flea" what a gem of a place. This tole tray was marked down to $9.99. It is a very large size too and the colors are perfect for my home. Yay!
Also at the same place I found this painted bunny box for $9. It is a heavy wooden box with hinges on the lid, which happen to be broken, but I don't care I love the art work and the bunnies.
Also at Classy flea, this birdie candle holder. Love it! it was $9 too I think. This is a sweet cherub I found at a Garage sale a few weeks ago, 50 cents. I don't know I have thought of painting it an off white? and distressing with a glaze, what do you think?
Ok in the same general area of the GW and Classy Flea, in Marietta, was this other thrift store, I think it is Union Missions sponsored or something like that, anyway within 2 minutes of walking in the door I found this little beauty, yes she is Southern Living, she is in new condition and I didn't care that she was $8. She flew right into my basket.
This candle pillar was an easy decision too, only $3. It is heavy and very nice, will look fantastic on the side of my soaker tub. It is very nicely detailed.
Here all my Classy Flea finds and the red tapestry type table cover with tassels on the corners is one thing I found at the GW in Marietta, also found a hammock. I will show later when hubby gets it up for us.
Oh yes this shelf was waiting for me too at the thrift store, it was $5. I chopped off the top but it is made of iron and has a frenchy look at the top, it is hard to find shelves that don't look all countryfied. This is either going in the bathroom or near the pantry in the kitchen, hmm not sure yet.
Oh yes the white wire basket for $4 also from the thrift store. The books are from the GW in my home town, except the recipe book found it at the GW near my mom's in TN. Hardbacks are $1 and softsides are $50, although I paid $2.99 for some reason for the cookbook.
