Junk in the Trunk Vintage Flea Market

 Saturday my friend Sandie and I went to the "Junk in the Trunk" Vintage Flea Market at Westworld. I gotta admit, I felt like a dummy when I found out they have been happening just 15 minutes from my house for over a year!!! There were lots of vendors and all had something wonderful to buy.

Can you image the amount of time it took to make these wings??? I wish I had gotten the name of this vendor. If you know, shoot me an email and I'll put her link up!


 This is Judy's booth from Vintage Street Designs. She takes great old pieces of furniture and gives them new life with a paintbrush and her creative talents.

I loved this stenciled burlap pin board.

 There's Sandie buying vintage ephemera while I checked out this old milk can. It was cool, but a little out of my budget for the day. :)
 I did however find some adorable headbands made by Eve of Chic Headband.
Eve was so sweet, and I loved her headbands. I wanted something that was cute, and dressed up my hair when I didn't feel like doing anything with it. These fit the bill perfectly!!!

Well, I didn't come home with very much on this little trip, but I sure had a good time!
I'll be at the next show for sure!

LOL sometimes there is much more on "your doorstep" than you're aware off. It just happened to me to.
But the one you visited really rocks.
Flea markets are truely a great MECCA to visit. Especially when you find things cheap.
And those headbands look fabulous. You do not find them over here.

I bet you booked the next market in your agenda!!! :o)

Warmest wishes from Holland, Thea x
