I am ready to relax! I was up oh so early, of course for the Stormville Flea Market in NY. It's always a good day when your going to a 600 vendor market! My In-laws came over this afternoon for a quiet barbecue which was nice. So now I'm winding down ready to share and spill!

My sister and I have been going to Stormville for the past three years. It is such an enjoyable day starting with a back road adventure from Connecticut into New York. Its such a beautiful ride passing through the street sign Looking Glass Hill Rd, quaint little town of New Preston and the beautiful farms and sweet homes. It's a little bit of a longer drive but oh so worth it.

Unfortunately I didn't have the best of luck for purchases. I think I'm finding that I really don't like paying flea market prices even with a haggle, because I know that tag sales, estate sales and thrift stores have much better prices! ;) How bad is that? I did so enjoy spending the day with my lil sister! Well I am going to post a pic of us at the market!

P.S.We both love to sleep in so we usally don't arrive till 10 or so but today we arrived at 9am, the earliest ever! It's very very hard to pass by all the tag sales on the way.

Happy Resting!

Amazing find!

Last summer, my sister and I are on our way to my favorite Flea Market in New York "Stormville" and of course we see tons of signs for tag sales on our way, so we decided to stop at this particular one. Were we ever happy! It was packed with amazing vintage items including furniture! Yeah!!
We're loving the beautiful pieces that had belong to this womens great aunt. We were very interested, my sister ended up buying 2 bureaus, 1 with a mirror and a vanity and mirror. I bought 2 dining pieces. The women gave the 5 pieces for $300.00! Such a steal, she could see our love for them and was so happy they were'nt going to dealers.( no offence to dealers) So here are pics of my purchases!
The Stormville Flea Market is this weekend Sat.&Sun., Me and my sister are leaving my house 7am Sunday morning!

This is me, I'm Carly

Hello! I'm excited to be making my first post for my blog!
I was introduced to blogs my a good friend about 8 months ago. I followed her blog for a while and slowly a became curious to finding other blogs. Untill then I did'nt realize the world of blogging, its amazing! There are blogs for everything! The first few blogs I began to follow were Garage Sale Gal , SaturdayFinds and Apron Thrift Girl. I enjoyed reading them and looking for others so much, I figured I could do this. So here I am trying. Its not an easy task to start out, its alot of work and time! I am enjoying it though. I've got lots of ideas going through my head. I like the journal part of it too. Well I am going to figure out how to post pics and so on.
