MAXWELL STREET FLEA - Cedarburg, WI

This past Memorial HoLiDay Weekend, I once again took a "Booth Space" Selling My ChiPPy!-SHaBBy! ViNtaGe F*I*N*D*S at our local CEDARBURG'S MAXWELL STREET FLEA MARKET...   With rain in the forecast, Saturday's Set-Up was a little bit "iffy"~ Sooo I opted for a 4 a.m. set up on Sunday Morning...   I LoVe starting off my day  with the BiRdies Sweetest Songs!*!*!  (Do click on pics to enlarge...)



This was my little *French Inspired Area*
 with lots of B*L*I*N*G...


 Metal Garden Containers with
 a time~worn PaTiNa...




BirdCage...
These look FaB Hung on your porch wall!*!*!



Metal-Top Garden Table...







 The weather held nicely ALL DAY SUNDAY...  
The Crowds were definitely there ~ but the many furniture pieces I brought - were just not selling, nor were my vintage chandeliers...  Years past they sold like "hot-cakes" in May...  **SMALL SHaBBies** and ViNtaGe Garden Container SaLes were strong...
I'll be back at MAXWELL STREET FLEA
 on September 2nd, - Cedarburg WI...

BARN SaLe - Granville, Ohio...

Way toooo many stops... Running Behind Schedule... There was NO WAY that we were going to make the French Hen Farm SaLe  in Marysville - this year...  HOWEVER,  changing our Hotel Reservation, enabled us to ShoP at yet another BARN SALE in the UpScale Town of Granville, Ohio...

 I LoVe not knowing what to expect...



 We pulled up just as it was opening...
How inviting is this!*!*!  I just LoVe experiencing
 a SaLe for the first time...  








The SaLe was very well organized
and MOSTLY INDUSTRIAL...  




The One Piece I soooooo wanted

SHaBBy ShoPPing INDIANA-OHIO Weekend!*!*!

OMG!*!*! Did Frog Husband & I ever put on the RoAd MiLeS in just a few short days!*!*!  
OVER ELEVEN HUNDRED MILES TO BE EXACT!!!
  I REALLY can't believe what we packed-in starting out VERY EARLY Thursday Morning and arriving HOME VERY LATE Saturday Nite...

Some SHaBBy-ShoPPing F*I*N*D*S from this
 past weekend's Indiana/Ohio Road Trip...




*** INDIANA***
As we're barreling down the highway in Indiana on Thursday Morning, I see the Exit Sign coming up ~ "Mishawaka"...  I remembered Anita, from the Iowa Junk Gypsies doing a  recent post on the MISHAWAKA ANTIQUE MALL & Joe & Sandy of RHUBARB REIGN - having a booth space in that Mall...  Soooooo - WE STOPPED & FOUND IT!*!*!

Biggest S*U*R*P*R*I*S*E
 We had to wait till it opened - AND when it did - to my surprise, as the owner unlocked the door with a big smile, I was greeted with **IT'S ChiPPy!-SHaBBy! - OMG!*!*!  As it turns out, GLENDA reads my Blog & when she had one - (Junkin In My Pink Cadillac) I read hers!!!  Unfortunately the shop keeps her sooooo busy - so there isn't much time for blogging these days... I would highly recommend stopping at this Antique Store!!!  FaB mix of Architectural SaLVage, SHaBBies, & Industrial to name a few...  AND it's not that far off the interstate...

 PeRfeCTLy ChiPPy 
White BirdBath...








I bought this PeRfeCTLy ChiPPy... Crusty... Rusty... White Metal Garden Table from Joyce's Booth in the Mishawaka Mall...    I sooooo would have loved meeting Joyce ~ her booth being filled with lots of "ChiPPy FiNdS"...

~ DO CHECK BACK ~
