Tuesday’s Trends: Flea Market Finds
via PinterestVintage photos are always a great find, too. I love buying these in bulk at estate sales because they’re great for accents and just so interesting! Frame a few and add them to empty spots in a gallery wall for a little something extra.
via PinterestDress Forms My background in fashion draws me to antique dress forms. Aren’t they gorgeous? If you have a little extra space in your dressing area, they make a great necklace display for costume jewelry that’s a little less precious but well worth showing off! Some people love to leave antique and vintage object as they find them. It’s definitely easier to let them tell their stories that way. This group of Parisian dress forms could probably tell all sorts of tales! You know I love anything French!
via PinterestI love this refurbished dress form! I think this is the way to go if you want to display your jewelry on it. It’s just a lovely pattern, too.
via TumblrCard Catalogs No fear! Non-book worms can find a need for these storage devices of yonder! The move to digital record keeping has forced a lot of these beauties into flea markets. In other words, your interior style will benefit! I’ve seen these on both small and large scales. This small-scale one that Emily Henderson from Secrets of a Stylist used is simply divine! It brings even more interest than a regular old end table. Plus, those hairpin legs are retro without being stuffy! DIY on the Cheap might be your style! Just think of all the rings and baubles those drawer could hold! (Did I mention that I love jewelry?!)
via DIY on the CheapDrawer Pulls and Knobs Adding an interesting accent knob to a piece of regular old furniture can really take it to the next level! There’s just something so FAB about detail on such a small scale. They’re like jewelry for cabinets and drawers! Full door knobs are a rare find, but oh, are they worth it! This fab Victorian one is on Etsy, but I’d love to hear from anyone who’s been able to track down one at a flea market! I’ve been on the look out for one like this for years.
