On the second Thursday of May and October, Canton, MS hosts a semi-annual flea market that attracts thousands of customers. I have been attending for the last 25 years. I sweet talked my hubby into going with me this year because I had a suspicion I would need him to tote a birdhouse.
This vendor was selling metal ware. The hub and I liked the lime green fish, but left him behind. The fish would be a good catch for someone else.
That’s me in the floppy hat looking at bottles. They were $1.00 each, but I didn’t buy any because they were more suited for bottle trees.
Residential streets were closed and booths were set up in people’s yards and around the courthouse square. I liked the window boxes with the pink flowers in it.
Birdhouses were the hot seller at this years market. These had all been sold and were waiting for their owners to come back and pick them up.
These colorful bottle tree chandeliers caught my eye.
Here I am again in my floppy hat leaving Charlotte’s Web antique store with package in hand.
I bought this Atlas Strong Shoulder Mason aqua colored jar there. The original zinc top has Atlas imprinted on it.
For now, it is on a shelf in my kitchen where I keep my cookbooks. The roosters approve.
After 3 hours in the 90 degree sun, we headed home. My sweet hubby has his hands full with the two birdhouses I bought.
I couldn’t resist this lime green birdhouse with its tin roof and fleur de lis topper.
St. Francis blessed it and welcomed it into the garden.
I fell madly in love with this rustic birdhouse also. Since I couldn’t decide which one I wanted the most, I came home with both birdhouses.
Note the perches made out of bent spoons.
The grapevine wreath has barbed wire in it to keep out the cows. HA! I don’t know why the barbed wire is in there other than to make it sturdy.
Thanks for stopping by. See ya soon!
