Arlington, Va Flea Market

It has been awhile since I have been on. There is so much to blog about. I will work my way backwards. This last weekend we took a quick road trip up to Arlington, VA and DC. When I say quick I mean quick. We went mainly because of this sale. I love her style. It was fun to talk with Jenny and her husband Mike. This flea market was great. There were a lot of great sales. By the way I love flea markets but I am usually afraid to purchase. So this time around I took a set amount of cash and was ready to purchase things that I knew would work great for our house.

Here is what I bought at Jenny's sale.
For the the kids' room.

The Pelmet Boxes I talk about all the time. I can use hers as my pattern.

I love this chair. I was so happy it was still available when I got to the sale.

I think the buttoned back is to die for.

These were our other purchases from the market.
I love New York City. Why not buy a large original painting to hang in our house.

I loved the colors in this painting.

I love old boxes. This is an old army box. I have placed blankets, books, and magazines in it.


I would consider this a successful flea market trip.


  1. I am soooo happy for you guys! I've been hearing about your trip but I had no idea that you were going for her sale! That is dreammmyy! I love everything you bought and I bet you made it work so perfectly in your house. Love, love, love.

  2. Oh man, I ADORE that 3rd pic you posted, the one of C girl turned to the side. She is such a sweet pea! Also, what great finds! Definitely worth your trip even if the touristy stuff didn't work out. I can't wait to see these great items on display in your home. Love the flower painting and the trunk!

  3. Such good finds! I'm totally envious of that chair. SO COOL!
