Flea Market Find Part 1

My friend Cynthia and I hit up the What Cheer flea market on Friday. What Cheer is about 40 minutes east of Iowa City and their fairgrounds are home to a large flea market they hold three times a year. I haven’t been in at least five years, so I was excited to get back and walk the rows at the fairgrounds searching for my ‘treasures.’ I did very well and stuck to my budget, only picking up a couple of items.

My first item was a bench for our entry. I cleaned it up with three coats of Polyurethane on Saturday and it’s in use today!

After:

                  

Cynthia scored the deal of the day though, with her $5 letterpress tray.

Stay tuned for my other two finds.
