Antiquing around Louisville

One of my favorite things about summer, is going to outdoor flea markets. Jason and I recently attended the Fleur De Flea Vintage Urban Market down on the Louisville Waterfront. It was filled with lots of great vendors, and we were able to score some great vintage pieces.
 We actually purchased this gray dresser, and it's available at Lulubelles Boutique in Norton Commons. 
 Jason and I found this old set of plans from 1915. It was really neat to look through all the details that were incorporated on this English style home.
 Loved this piece, and could see it being used in a mudroom, or a craft room.
 I'm always looking for interesting architectural pieces to incorporate into our homes that we are building and designing together. These would be great to incorporate on the end of an island, or possibly make a kitchen table using these.
 This color combination really spoke to me. I was super tempted to pick up both pieces.
 I love this gold gilded vintage mirror. How great would it be over a buffet in a dining room? Or maybe a focal piece over your mantel?
 This particular market also had a great selection of potted plants, and unique ways to display them.

 Succulent plants are really on trend right now, and I love the way this particular artist displayed her potted plants.
 Loved this brass horse hook. Such a fun unique piece, and also on trend, since it was vintage brass.
 After all that antiquing we stopped at one of the food vendors and got a snack. We love Steel City Pops, they are so refreshing and yummy.
It was a great morning to be down by the river. We saw some really cool stuff, met some really great people, and even caught a glimpse or the beautiful new bridge. It was nice to get out of our comfort zone and neighborhood, and explore other parts of our lovely city. The next Fleur De Flea Vintage Market is scheduled for July 2. I would highly recommend it. Two thumbs up from Jason and I.
Thanks for stopping by, 
Until next time,
