Hell's Kitchen Flea Market Adventure

Yesterday you saw a part of my trip to the Antiques Garage, but the other leg of this excursion was to the Hell's Kitchen Flea Market. This was equally as fun and we got some goodies here, too! Too bad it was raining because there would have been much more. I bought the green/brown bottle above and the vendor said it was from the 1800's! Depending on how the light hits it, it can be deep olive or a dark green.

Clearly a company with a sense of humor. Appropriate as we started out the day with Mimosas...

These oversized wrenches were very interesting. I can see these in some sort of antique tool collection or group of 3 or 5.

This graceful glass jug had "Italia" written on it. I had no choice but to fall in love.

They had so many fabulous suit cases. I wish I had room for them. A stack of them would make a really fun side table.


Antique filing cabinets. Sand these down and repaint them and you're in business!

Truly appropriate for my friend. She is a star client of mine now!

Amazing crockery.

How pretty is this collection of glass jars? I just love all the different shades of blues and greens.


I'm so glad you all enjoyed our trip to the Antiques Garage yesterday and I hope you enjoy this just as much. I think we'll take another trip to the Flea market in a few weeks when the weather is more favorable. We still have a bit more work to do on my friend's apartment--I can't wait to show you how it's coming together!

I am such a sucker for old glass bottles, too! I keep buying them and am running out of room... Great finds!

Thanks ya'll! I think it would be fun if we all went together sometime. Would be interesting to see what everyone ended up with.

I've never been to the Hell's Kitchen flea market. Looks like a neat place. You found some great items.
