**Part Two** HoLiDay Weekend Road Trip...
The Burkhardt's decided to once again - REALLY PACK-IN as much as we could over our 2-1/2 day get away... ~ We heard there were "2" ANTIQUE SHOWS in Northern Wisconsin - MINOCWA & EAGLE RIVER... The drive to them, from Minnesota, was do able... We wandered along many a tree-lined road, coming upon just a few antique shops... The "2" upscale indoor shows turned out to be a "BROWN-OUT" with lots of Northwoods Cabin items... - We didn't buy a thing!!! HOWEVER - can you believe this ~ "We came across a FLEA MARKET"!!!
This caught my eye from the road in front of an antique store... YES - that best shabby coffee table got tossed in the car for sure!!!
FaBuLouS Piece of "Bling" ~ mixed in with "Beer Trays"- OMG!!!
A good way to display a salvaged "trunk lid"...
We enjoyed stopping every so often at little parks to read Historical Markers...
The Up-North woodsy fragrance was wonderful!!!
There it was... A very welcoming sight after hours of tree-lined roads...
AND - it was happening that day!!!
SHAWANO FLEA MARKET...
What will I find???
OMG!!! ~ A Flea Market I've never been to... As it turned-out, it was a total "junker" flea market... Tube socks... spices... many a dollar table... HOWEVER, I did come away with a few shabbies - of course!*!*!
I just LoVed this "ViNtaGe Paris Apartment" Chair!*!*! It's even more fabulous with lots of chippiness in the wood/gesso frame!!! I could just see this used as a prop with a bling-bling ChAnDeLieR hanging above!!!! - YES!*!*! I also loved this little table... Although it has no drawers, I loved it's form... What will I do with it???? ~ I'm "just thinking" at this point, but perhaps I'll have Jeff saw it in half, and I'll apply it to a board of sort - FOR A SHaBBy SaLe Sign????
