Design | My Flea Market Finds

Aren’t these COOL?

One of my ongoing projects is building my collection of vintage and mid-century pieces. I’ve found so many cool things at flea markets, garage sales, auctions… you name it. They really weren’t kidding when they said one man’s trash is another’s treasure! There’s so many ways to refurbish used items so that you’d never know they were thrifted. Easy, creative AND truly unique.

Anyways, I thought it might be cool to share some of my favorite flea market finds and encourage you to do the same. Take a look below:

Need to make a call? Try this classic rotary…


This is an original Vera scarf I framed as artwork. Keeps your neck (and home) nice and cozy.


Danish modern Teak magazine table equipped with some compelling reads.


Ice bucket by Norwegian artist Grete Prytz Kittelsen. Bonus points for being my favorite color.


This cat might not have 9 lives, but it is Bitossi – famous Italian ceramics.


1062 Needle point art.


Okay, now it’s your turn to show me what you’ve got.

What amazing finds have you spotted?
