flea market photos

I took a few days this week and went on a trip to visit my lovely friend and her gorgeous family. I am lucky to have a friend who knows me so well and took me to the most amazing secondhand warehouse - Limberlost in Laura, just a few hours north of Adelaide.

Picture loads of huge old rickety sheds in the middle of dried up paddocks, each piled high to the ceiling with old furniture in need of love and restoration, spiderwebs in every nook and cranny, paint peeling off doors making beautiful patterns, and piles of old farming tools knotted up together hanging from rafters. I was so blown away and fell for everything I laid my eyes on. However, I only bought one thing. One thing I have really hoped that I would find in a oppie one day, but have never found. Until now. It is so beautiful but needs a little tlc.  I will share my find next week :)

I took way too many photos but these are my favourites.
