Who loves shopping flea markets?

I’ve got a new book from BHG to share with you today and one of my lucky readers gets a chance to own one too. I have always enjoyed bringing home the vintage pieces to use at my house and you’ll always find older treasures in my decorating arsenal.

It always gives you a chance to discover a new treasure and bring it home to fill in the spots around a house.

Flea Markets are the bomb– love visiting
I love the uniqueness of vintage to decorate with. Imagining the family that used it and had it brand new! I love a good treasure hunt!
Anyone can fill a home with store bought items but when you add a vintage item that makes a statement it changes the room completely.
I love the way that vintage items add some interest and quirkiness to decor. Often they have unusual shapes and patinas that add to a room. Thank YOU!!!
I love using old pieces in my home. It’s always fun wondering who used it and even
where they lived. New pieces just don’t have the character and warmth. Another fun thing is your home never looks exactly like someone else’s.
I love giving new life to something that was once cherished by another. And the pieces are always unique.
Vintage finds make my home unique and add character. It is like a treasure hunt to find special items.

I like using Flea Market finds because of the style and colors. Most of the time the pieces are not perfect, kinda rustic looking. I have many things in my home from flea markets and it is really hard to find a favorite. Thanks for sharing the book Rhoda.
Love spending the day shopping at flea markets and finding just the right item to add to a room or collection. Pam

The thrill of the hunt, and that my house looks unique and not “cookie-cutter.”

The thing I enjoy most about decorating with vintage finds is that our home doesn’t end up looking like anyone else’s–it looks just like us!
Thank you for the opportunity!

I love that they are well made and I tend to always score them at a great price.
Its fun to add vintage pieces & add your own different style in each room of your home, the thrill of the hunt makes memories daily.
