I held back at Waldo Flea Market but came home with some gorgeous finds. I went back and forth on the radio above but eventually purchased it for $25- one of my more if not most expensive flea market purchases. It makes an impact in a space and makes a great conversation piece. It's on Etsy and in my Southern Crossing booth.
And continuing with the uncomfortable trend of paying more than I wanted to for the "good stuff" that continued until today, boo! Anyway, he's a beau, gorgeous to illuminate a home bar. See him on Etsy and locally in my booth. On Etsy.
on Etsy, get it away!
I've decided to dub this piece "Serendipity Willie". So lucky that he was languishing in Waldo in such beautiful condition and by the time we got there around 10ish after the early birds made their rounds. I handed over one dollar and he was mine. While totting him around in my market cart there were coos of admiration and sighs of want for Willie, in his rugged neck-beard and fabulous jacket-hat combo. He may be the tackiest thing I've ever bought, that's saying something as a person who makes a living buying/selling/branding kitsch with a display of giant Power Ranger Megazord robots in her kitchen. Willie sold to blog reader Eric (thank you!) when he randomly asked if I happened to have an Elvis velvet paintings in stock right after Willie came into my life. Enjoy him Eric, he's glorious.
These two were free! There's so water damage so I'm selling these for $5.00 each. These were in the bedroom of nearly anyone who was a little girl in the sixties, so I'm told. My mom had these exact ones. Very nostalgic. On Etsy or E-mail me if you'd like either one.
Sold for $45 on Etsy.)
And I finally got me this tray! I've been admiring an identical one locally for years. YEARS coveting it at $45 or something crazy and I got my own from the Willie Nelson-seller for another $1.00! I didn't even see it until my second time circling her stall on the way out. On Etsy.
And I love these little glass tray guys. I use them to hold memory cards, little digital parts, keys and little extras around the house. On Etsy.
My strategy to be very selective and only buy what I thought would sell paid off with this trip. Already made $119 from three of the items, hell yeah! And with that I escape to force myself to accomplish EVERYTHING on the to-do list today, or else! What did you find this weekend? Do share in the comments.
