{ Cottage & Farmhouse Decor..What you should Buy at Flea Markets! }

Hey guys & welcome back to TQS!! I hope you all had a lovely weekend enjoying something fall-ish & doing something that made you happy! So a few days ago while running errands with my sister she spotted a Flea Market coming to one of our local parks/historical communities & of course we made plans to attend since these don't pop up around us very much! Well, today { Sunday } was the day & we threw some hats on, henleys & headed out to go pickin or junkin..It then dawned on me while visiting each booth, drinking the yummy lemonades & touring the historical homes that I've NEVER done a post on what to look for/ buy while out flea marketing etc.. For some people flea markets can be a bit overwhelming with all the goods & I can totally see why! I come from a long line of pickers, thrifters, DIY'ers & cottage goods, so why not share with you all some of the things I look for while "junkin". With the popularity of farmhouse & cottage decor at its peak it's time I share what to scope out & buy while marketing.. Come virtual junkin with me & read more below!!

There's something about the fall air that always has be loving junkin just that much more in the fall season..The crisp air, cozy drinks & of course you know my historical loving heart loves these homes hehe. This was just part of the market & food/ drink trucks etc.. I loves that the historical homes were open for touring as well..
