Just a little browsing....

Ok...so maybe it was a little out of my way, but I happened to swing by one of my favorite "junk" flea markets  in Atlanta.  It is called "My Favorite Place".....really!  Seriously thought is really is a junk store.  I have taken a few friends in there and they were like "are you kidding me?"....this place is crappy!  But, I guess you have to be able to spot the "gems" cause I have scored in there many times.  Here are a few things I bought.
These, because I am going to do this for someone.....
Pretty huh???
This, because you can do this....
and this...
Love brown transfer-ware....
2 of these... for 3.00
Because you can frame and they look good!!!

And this
Cause it was only 20.00 WITH the cushion....
This because I loved the colors.....Not sure what I am going to do with it but Orange and Navy...2 great combinations agree???
Not these specifically, but some like them.  I forgot to take a picture of the ones I got.  Have to go do that......But you get the picture.  I need a store!!  Or maybe I have a sale and "deck" out my garage like I saw another blogger do.  It was SO cute.  Of course, who am I kidding???  I would have to get serious about cleaning out the garage and basement first.  That would require Ritalin....I am not sure I have it in me.
Pin It!

I have never heard of that store, but looks like my kind of place. I love those things you bought.

Hi Sherry!
My folks used to
live in Hotlanta,
but we never met
this store ~ I'd
remember, for sure!
I love all of your
purchases, because
they are exactly the
kind that I would
buy, too! Thank you
for stopping by P&H
and for your very sweet
comment about my friend's
journey with cancer.....
It starts tomorrow, with
surgery, and your words
mean more than you can
know. Big hugs, today!

I just LOVE your blog, and everything you chose. I'm still thinking about that chicken coup coffee table! I am in Michigan, but next time I visit my family in ATL, I'm heading to Scott's, and your magical junk store.

Sherry-- This store is right down the way from my house. I try to stop in periodically and spot the "gems". It definitely takes some work-- but there are good finds!

My SIL moved to Carrollton and every single time she comes to Marietta I have to take her to The Classy Flea. I scored big once with some 18th century French maps for $12/each, but otherwise to me it just looks like junk. I'm not a good shopper when it comes to stuff like that, although I got a ton of great stuff at Scott this fall and winter when I redecorated my house. I need accessories/lamps/chandeliers, etc. so I need to make another trip down there next month and hope for the best. Seems like they have a lot of good stuff in the fall.

Looks to me like you have a great eye for finds. Maybe an Etsy store would be worth looking into?
