Four Flea Finds That Made Us Smile

This past weekend, we went to the last Elkhorn Flea Market of the season, also known as our first flea trip of the season.

Three Things from the Warehouse, Take 2

Last December, we scored the infamous Milo chair at a big warehouse sale (by the way, we finally ordered fabric for the chair, and we veered completely off course; go figure!), and over the weekend, the sale was back! It was being held in the same warehouse, but it was even bigger – if that’s even possible. The warehouse was stuffedKEEP READING >
