Flea Market Style Party

Do you ever get tired of me bragging about what I find at Goodwill? I know I don't get tired of finding great things each Saturday and Sunday. It's probably good that I work full time, or I would be at Goodwill all the time and my house would be really full of personality!

Yesterday,they had just brought out a big tub of things to set out and then walked away leaving everything just sitting there. So I started sorting through and found this wicker briefcase.

It was really dirty and I stuck it in the dishwasher for a couple of minutes and got all the grime off it. It looks like new now. (Yes, Jen - I still use my dishwasher for cleaning more than dishes! lol)

Check out the other flea market finds at "I'm a Flea Marketeer Party"!

What an interesting piece and it has such great texture. My kids and I love shopping at Goodwill and other thrift shops! That's where the best stuff is found, right?

I love Goodwill and the neat things you can find in there. Glad your briefcase came clean instead of falling apart in the dishwasher ;) I'm sure thats what would have happened to me, LOL

really, you put that in the dishwasher? I wouldn't have thought of that, but will be tempted to try it in the future!

I"m sure you could find some great pieces of small furniture that would look great covered in mosaic! Check out some great examples on my blog
