Flea Market Style Magazine

Check out the list of Readers' Favorite Antique Malls in the just released Flea Market Style Magazine.  Right on page 131, you will find Columbus Antique Mall in Columbus, Wisconsin.  

This mall is just north of Madison, Wisconsin.  I had a booth there for a number of years, until I started selling on Etsy.  I thought I would share some pictures of just a few of the offerings available at the mall.  You can find a variety of treasures ranging from $1.00 on up to $1,000 plus.

Neutrals in Metal, Wood, Glass, etc.

Kitchen Collections and More...
Industrial to Shabby Chic

Nostalgic Toys

So if you are in the neighborhood, be sure to check out the mall.  You might want to plan on spending as much time as possible since there are three floors. I can guarantee that you will not leave empty handed.

I love to collect colorful books and little bits and pieces of this and that. These collections are so much fun that I like to display them in my home for inspiration.  Collections are a wonderful way to decorate your home and surround yourself with the things you love.

Elkhorn Shopping

I spent a good part of yesterday shopping at the Elkhorn Flea Market. It was a beautiful day, so the vendors were out in full force - as well as the shoppers.  I managed to find some items for our Etsy shop.  Here is a preview of a few...

Fun vintage signs and a cute magazine holder.

A vintage bingo cage, hangers, sweet green bowls
 and an instant collection of skate keys.

And two shabby red stools for my collection.
More to come later...

Taking Time to Smell the Flowers

I decided to take a break from the Etsy shop and enjoy my flowers - before autumn is upon us.  It is hard to believe that it is August already.

 Time flies...go out and smell the flowers today.
