I finally managed to drag myself to the flea market last weekend! Got there late, but still did some damage! You know it's a good day at the flea when you leave with stuff tied to the roof! Let's take a closer look...
Not one, but TWO old factory carts! Great sizes and shapes! I love the weathered color of the smaller one, though I'm tempted to see how it looks with a coat of dark wax.
Look at the color on these old machine pulleys! Can't you see them in an old textile mill with a long leather belt around them? Not sure of my plan for these yet. I may stack them up and use them as a lamp base. But I also love the look of them as is, sitting on a bookshelf. Hmmm...
Another block pulley to add to my collection...this is a BIG one!
My boyfriend, Doug, spotted this great scale. The arm is missing, but all else is intact. Look a the enamel dial! I love the shape, as well. I've never seen one like this before. I'm guessing it is a kitchen scale, but...
Doug also spotted these great andirons. A dealer friend of his said they probably date back to 1910. They are now residing in Doug's fireplace stacked high with white birch logs.
Last, but not least, I grabbed this pair of gooseneck lamps. Check out the ornate details on the base. New wiring and a quick polish and these will be gorgeous!
Thanks, Doug, for helping me drag all this stuff home. You're the best!
Happy hunting everyone!
