  1. My favourite flea market find is a lamp that was constructed from various pieces of vintage brass, it looks sort of like a waterfall piece. It is very different and one of a kind.

  2. My favourite flea market find was a vintage steamer trunk. I love that it does double duty as storage and a table top.

  3. Shared on twitter here:!/ennsee/status/187323758585982976

  4. So many choices - perhaps my living room lamps which were an ugly greenish gold and are now a lovely matte black - thanks the the Giant Glebe garage sale - amazing sale!!
    My other choice is my repurposed 100 year old doors - all reused in my recent reno in the basement - great against modern polished concrete floors!

  5. My fave flea market find of the moment is this sweet bud vase with gold stripes around the neck. It looks beautiful with spring blooms in it.

    I retweeted your tweet about this fabulous giveaway!

  6. I love finding milk glass and clear vintage glassware at flea markets! I also love the old handwoven floor runner I found a few years ago.

  7. Yay the winner of Flea Market Finds is Colleen (comment #5) picked randomly from a vintage mason jar. Thanks everyone for entering :)

  8. Thank you vintage paper parade - I LOVE Matthew Mead's Flea Market Finds!
