I know this is a few days late, but I just had to share my finds from the day of shopping last week on my birthday. Since husband had work and daughter school, I decided to go to Burnet, about 40 miles west of Georgetown, on the edge of Hill Country.
I was told Burnet’s town square was the place to go if I wanted antique or flea market shopping, so I started there. I only found a couple places open, but I scored at Carolee’s on the Square. There I found the beautiful blue and purple wine glasses you see in the photo above. I love the thick glass that’s full of air bubbles. And even better, they go perfectly with the plate set we bought recently at Ikea.I also got the pretty Spring picture/hanging. Haven’t decided where to hang it yet.
My favorite find of the day, however, was the bluebonnet/Texas wildflower salt and pepper shakers and napkin holder, also seen in the above photo. Since we moved to Texas nine months ago, I’ve been looking for a unique set to replace the one I gave up when we moved. And I hit the jackpot at an indoor flea market called The Knot Hole. This place is huge! I think I spent three hours just wandering from booth to booth.
There was a fair amount of junk, but then there were the treasures (for me anyway), too. I also found this planter.
I haven’t decided yet whether to keep it indoors or outside. It really will look cute wherever it ends up.
Almost as cute as the permanent bluebonnet display I now have on my kitchen table.
