Meet the beautiful Christie Connelly whose booth was located North of Zapp Hall. Theresa of Garden Antqs Vintage took the time to take me all the way over to introduce me to her and her beautiful booth - what a sweetheart!
Of course that birdcage outside her booth caught my eye. Christie's style is definitely "Romantic Country".
Christie still had about 15 boxes to unload when I saw her on the first day, but believe me there was no shortage of treasures in her booth. And she was so warm and friendly, that I enjoyed hanging out in her booth several times over my two days there, taking my time to peruse all of the wonderful things that she hass collected over the years.
This little cabinet below filled with ironstone was my favourite display in Christie's booth. The little ivory baby shoe on the upper right shelf was one of the things that I lovingly chose to take home with me.
The excitement while looking around in Christie's booth was meeting fellow blogger "The Flying Bee"! Adrienne, who came all the way from Louisiana was so sweet and lovely, and also had the same ruffle tote from Jeanne at A Bushel and A Peck. I really enjoyed meeting her and hope to run into her again, maybe in the springtime! And she doesn't look all ratty and wilted like I did in that Texas heat and humidity - isn't she adorable?!!
Did I tell you how hot and humid it was during my two days at the flea market? I don't do well in that kind of weather, so it was fantastic to go to Cole's Flea Market to escape the mid-afternoon heat. The BEST part of the air-conditioned Cole's was meeting Janet of Sweet Talk whose booth is called Rubbish.
Isn't that pink podium perfect? Janet was an absolute DOLL! And speaking of dolls...
Look at those fabulous big doll heads. I wonder who ended up buying them... could it be the infamous Lauri of 2Chippys? I really liked them myself, but my friend Isabelle who was accompanying me was completely creeped out by them :) It's one of those love them or hate them kind of things, isn't it? Oh, and I really liked that chippy pink child's cabinet in the display as well. Janet thought it would look wonderful in our farmhouse - I agreed. If it didn't sell, Janet, I want it!
Janet's style I would characterize as "Word Chic" with a dash of "Schoolhouse Chic" perhaps. She is THE source for flashcards, both vintage and customized, as well as all sorts of letters. Very cool.
She had all kinds of quirky collections scattered about in her wonderful displays. Loved those wooden drumsticks!
Mlle Magpie couldn't leave the flea market without adding another birdcage to her collection - it just wouldn't be right. Fortunately for me, that little shabby white one peeking out behind the travel case in the photo below fit into my suitcase without a problem.
