Fancy $15 Tables and Fleaing

It happened so fast.  We made it to our local flea market today.  I didn't think about taking photos until we were on our way home.  Sorry.  I can however share a pair of tables we had with us.  My husband picked these up yesterday for $15 at a garage sale.  Yes, fifteen dollars for both.

They SOLD very quickly after the crowd rolled in.  Marble tops with ornate metal bases.

I have to be honest.  I wasn't crazy about the marble.  I prefer marble with white and grey tones.  However, the lady who purchased them loved the color.  So, that's all that matters.

The pair of weathered green chairs I shared before sold as well, as did quite a few other things.

My inspirational plaques, and brocante signs sold well.  People at this particular market don't see a lot of repurposed and handmade items.

Frames, pottery, this and that, sold.

It was nice to get out.  The weather was pleasant, and this flea market is only a 15-20 minute drive.  Many years ago we sold at this market almost every week.  The crowd comes in at 7:00am.  We were pretty light by 9:30, and left around 10:00.  We didn't bring a huge load, but, for a few hours work, we were very pleased with the results.

I'm still taking it easy.  Thanks again for all your prayers and well wishes.  I'm making a great recovery. Feeling like my old self again.  I'll have more to share during the week.

See ya soon.


  1. What a deal on those marble tables. It's no surprise they sold along with those green chairs. Glad to hear your feeling like your old self again. Don't do too much too soon!!

  2. Yeah!!! That's the way it should go.. start at 7 leave at 10 with almost all gone. Glad you had a great turnout.
    Make the rest of the day a sweet lazy family day!
    Happy today.
    Hugs, Gee

  3. Your hubby did great getting those tables for $15!!! I'm glad you're taking it easy and feeling better:)

  4. I always wonder why they don't have more flea markets like that here?! I just don't get it. I would definitely get up early to see what I could snag at your booth!


  5. OMG - I can't believe he paid less than a fast food meal for each of those incredible tables.

    My entire world is brown/beige/ivory - I loooove those tables, what a lucky gal (and lucky you two) for finding those tables.

    Glad the sale went well and that you are feeling better each day.

    Come sit a spell in my garden room with me.

  6. Happy you had a good morning of sales. This sounds like a great place to sell, too. The tables will be loved by who ever bought them.

  7. Rosemary, it sounds like you had a great morning. I am so glad you are doing well. Don't over do it yet. The tables are very pretty and prefer the gray marble also. Love the bases.


  8. Great tables, Rosemary! I love the base on them. I'm more of a grey and white marble girl myself. : )

  9. Glad you had a good and successful time...thanks for your sweet comment on Gage's post. :)

  10. Sounds like you had just the right mixture of sales and time out of the house. Healing Energy Continues...

  11. $15 for the pair! That's worth buying for the price alone! The bases of them are so lovely and articulately detailed. I'm so happy to know that you are feeling better and pray you continued good health.

  12. So glad you're feeling better! Those tables are awesome. I think I would have to bring them home, too:) Way to go Mr. Villabarnes!

  13. Sounds like the perfect way to spend a morning Rosemary. Glad to hear you are still taking it easy.
    Sending you healing hugs xx
