Funky Junk Sisters Vintage Flea Market

Thanks to a tip from my friend Laurie, Tessa and I and two friends headed out to the Funky Junk Sister’s “Junk Salvation” Vintage Flea Market at the Washington County Fairgrounds in Hillsboro on Saturday morning.

Such fun we had and such pretties we found.

Ever on the lookout for fun vintage pieces to add to her collection Tessa brought this cream colored wool vintage coat home for twenty dollars.  Of course she will give it the Totally Tessa style make over and I know it will be fabulous!

She also scored a great pair of cream colored leather high top boots.

And we had to take a picture of her with the sweet gal we bought them from.

I found lots of things I now want to go home and make.  My creative juices were churning!

Loving this fun banner!

I could use some fun new pillows for my windowseat.

I see some definite crafting time in my future.

I did manage to bring home a couple of things with me too.

A few new blue Mason jars for my collection.  These have some great metal and glass lids on them.

And I have a thing for old drawers.  I love to use them to store things in.

And then my favorite find of the day!  A yellow ironing board!!

Like my husband, you may be wondering what on earth I am going to do with it.  Well, wouldn’t it be perfect for a serving table at a tea party, a garden party, a baby or bridal shower?   I just see a pretty little pendant banner hanging from it or a vintage table cloth over the top!  Oh the possibilities.  I think I am going to have to plan a party just so I can use my new ironing board!!

Here’s the cute gal I bought it from.

So much fun and so many pretties!

After the flea market Tessa and I made a quick stop at Goodwill just to take a quick look and look what I found…

An Idaho plate!  It was actually the pretty blue color around the edge that caught my eye, the fact that my husband was raised in Idaho is a bonus.  I have no idea what on earth I am going to do with it but I love it.  I’m thinking maybe I need to collect plates from all the states we have lived in.  So I’ll be on the lookout for California, Wisconsin, Washington, Utah….

Got my pretty fix for the week!  Thanks for letting me share.

Next week I’ve got all kinds of fun sweet treats to share in preparation for Valentine’s Day!

    Do you know there are other funky junk sisters events elsewhere? I would love to attend one if they were a little closer to me. I live in the NW corner of Washington.

    What great finds–love Tessa’s boots and coat. The yellow ironing board has so many upcoming uses. Love the banners and jars too. Thanks for sharing!

    I, too, have a vintage wooden ironing board. And that’s exactly what I use it for… I used it as our bar for our Holiday Open House, then as our coffee bar at the end of the evening! I had mine decorated with white lights all around it.
    Just a tip though…make sure it is sturdy! When I first got it I had it set up with my apothecary jars and some other pieces as a “sideboard” in my dining room. Well, it was too heavy and caved in and, well, you know… everything crashed to the floor!! Enjoy!

    I LOVE your finds and you have such great ideas for them…enjoyed the photos of the day and the previous post on the cute- as -can- be campers! Hope you can get one, really!

    About 10 years ago I collected vintage plates from the 6 states that my husband and i have lived in. In the various homes we have lived in I have displayed them in either the dining room on plate shelves or in the kitchen over the pantry door. People comment on them frequently. They are inexpensive to find at antique/junk shops or flea markets.
