Flea Market Finds & Auction Goodies


OMG! I've been so happy with items I've won at local auctions lately, that I've decided to start a regular running post here about them now and then, along with my crafts. I hope you don't mind!

I buy all kinds of items for re-purposing and resell in my Peddlers Mall. But my last find isn't going any farther than my master bedroom.

Here's a quick pic of it from when I won it. It's a solid wood, oak cabinet. (Oh, btw, I love oak furniture the most- it's so country.)



All is intact. The doors are perfect and the two drawers. I'm 5'4" and this is just a little bit taller than me.There is very minimal scratches on it towards the trim at the bottom. All and all I'm super happy with it. I like a little wear on my items because our home is so country and "lived in" look. lol. It's going in my bedroom and house all my old quilts. And the drawers are gonna hold my sheets and such.

What did I have to pay for this? Well, I had the winning bid of only $30.00! I could not believe it it. I was loving it before the auction and I told my husband that I wanted to go up to about $80.00 on it. In no way ever, did I expect to get it for only $30.00!!!!


Do you attend flea markets or auctions?

PRIMITIVE Antique Sewing Machine

PRIMITIVE ANTIQUE SEWING MACHINE

Here's my favorite (WAS-read last paragraph) antique sewing machine I won at auction for only $5.00, after I painted it up:
I loved this antique sewing machine and it works perfect.
When I first saw it at the auction, it was a rough, scuffed up, light brown color then. 
 
BEFORE:
 
 AFTER:
 

So I bought it and painted it a flat black. 
Then stenciled on a cute saying with stencils I bought from eBay. 

And on the inside I stenciled on an Old Crow. 
And this is it:


I loved it and was gonna keep it. 
That is until I opened it up and realized the model number was three 6's...  
Well, I'm a tad bit superstitious so it had to go.  
And off it went for sale in my Peddlers Mall Booth #555


Price: $49.99 SOLD in my Booth#555
Thank You!
