The Junction Flea

Ain't nothin' like a good ol' flea market to get you up early on a Sunday morning. Armed with my camera and dressed in way too many layers, my Mom and I made our way towards our first flea market of the year - The Junction Flea. I scored an AMAZING find but you'll have to make it to the end to see what I found!

I LOVED the vendors! Despite the cold winds, rain and hail they were all super friendly and nice. I also loved the booth styling and little details. I'm talking custom trailers, pennant flags and some really pretty signage. Needless to say, I went a little camera happy so I hope you enjoy the photos!. If you're thinking of checking it out, the Junction Flea takes place on the second Sunday of every month, the next one being June 9th. You can also check out their website here.

Here are a few stores that were in attendance: Bright Brown Vintage, Reservoir Vintage, World Headquarters, Tattered and Torn and Manual Labour Coffee.

Oh, and here's the best part. My fab find: a beautiful and bright mosaic side table for the balcony. I spotted this right away because of the colours. I love the tapered legs as well. And for $35? C'mon!

This gorgeous table has really become the jumping off point for my balcony. I knew I wanted to incorporate bright colours and this will help pull everything together. I can't wait to get working on it! Have a great Monday all!

Happy Early Mother's Day!

Now you can put a face to the name. Meet Mamarazzi. She's my thrift-loving partner in crime, my sounding board, my Mama. She has helped shaped me into the woman I am today and I have to thank her for that because I think I turned out pretty darn good! (hehe) I also wouldn't have started this blog if it weren't for her. She exposed me to thrifting and decorating on a budget from such an early age that it's become part of who I am. So thanks Mamarazzi, because I know damn sure you are reading this.

So Sunday is Mother's Day, and guess where we'll be going?

Talk about the perfect Mother's Day outing! You should have heard the excitement and pure joy in Mamarazzi's voice. We'll be doing an early breakfast and heading over to the Junction Flea. I've always wanted to check this place out. So if you're in the area, meet us there!

I also want to say Happy Early Mother's Day to all the hardworking and beautiful Mama's out there! A lot of the important women in my life are Mama's and let me tell you, I don't know how you do it ladies. I realize all these women in my life have similar traits: they are hardworking, patient, kind and exude energy - lots of it. It's definitely inspiring and I hope I can handle motherhood just as gracefully as you ladies when my time comes.

Happy Weekend! xoxo
