In my blog I plan to chat about nature, crafts, baking, gardening, beekeeping, family, and whatever else seems appropriate at the time. Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

French Flea Market

On Friday, my 'sailing' friend, Teresa, said "Hey I know what we can do today, Tipton is having a french flea market." I look at her in amazement and said, "And you are just now telling me this?" It was noon and I had a house to clean. We had been sailing that morning. So, I quickly did a little bit of cleaning, she helped, and we headed to Tipton. I can clean any day, but this market was only Friday and Saturday. I enjoyed it so much, that I went back the next day with my Mom. Tipton, IN of all places folks. Let's go shopping........
This was the entrance area. Love the shutters and the pink chairs! Following are some booth displays.

My Mom enjoying some lavender lemonade while shopping. Thanks Mom for not complaining while I took so long talking and shopping in each booth.

Some of my purchases. I am addicted to this kind of stuff.

Now this....I don't know why but I had to have it. It's a tin, and it's full of paint. Love it. I can't believe there is still so much paint left.

This booth decided they wanted to get everyone in a creative mood, so they were having little make it take it workshops. Lucky me! They have a booth at the Logan Village Mall in Noblesville. They also have a blogspot

This is what I made. Easy peasy and so much fun!

After flea marketing, I went to a couple of garage sales and picked up this stuff for next to nothing. Yes folks, that is a SPOOL of lace.
I could post so many more pics of stuff I bought and fun I had, but in the interest of getting this post out there...I gotta stop. Next year, we all gotta go to the French Flea Market in Tipton!


  1. This looked like a ton of fun! I went to a couple of quilt shops on Saturday with some friends. I only bought enough fabric to cover a cushion for a iron bench sitting in my breakfast area. I would have loved this flea market. I love the kind of things you buy also.

  2. Brenda,

    I think I'm going to have to have a "french flea market type garage sale!" I think I might have too much of this stuff! Good for you for having the willpower to only buy what you "need" in fabric. My stash is outgrowing the basement! Cindy

  3. This makes me relax a little about participating this year. However I did get the application in the mail today (I am told I have a space regardless of the app) but the rules in there made me panic some all over again!!

  4. im going to this event myself. very excited. maybe ill see u there

  5. Hi what a unique and lovely market - wish i could visit. You are on our 'Beekeepers Blogs' page and you are quite individual amongst all the others who mainly journal about their beekeeping. Also we are having a July giveaway.
