My "Was It Worth It?" question involves driving 18 miles to go to a small flea market on a farm in the middle of corn fields and then driving 30 miles back to town and past it to go to a couple of thrift stores. The flea market was at a beautiful location but were the finds worth the drives?
These antique door plates are copper and iron (I think). I'm going to get some pretty doorknobs and make some coat hangers for the wall by my front door.
This quilt was found at a garage sale that I stopped at on my way to the flea market. It's not quilted, just tied. But I love the worn edges and bright colors. And at 50 cents - let me repeat that, 50 CENTS! - it was a super find!
I also found these collapsible baskets at the thrift stores. I think they are probably for collecting eggs (having never actually collected eggs I can't be sure), but I'm going to use them to collect veggies from my garden this summer!
So, was the 40+ miles of driving worth it? (I think so!)
