I love flea markets! We have a wonderful indoor flea market just a few minutes away. We go there somewhat often and always end up leaving with something awesome. Recently, we went furniture shopping for a counter height kitchen table. Our other table was perfectly fine, except for…
Our dog, Sparkle, just decided one day that our dining room table looked like a comfy spot to lay. Eeewww! We got her to stop jumping up on the table….while we were home anyway. I would sometimes come home to see little doggy prints on the table. Sneaky pup!
Enough was enough, so we set out on a mission for a new counter height table because it would be too high up for her to jump up on. First, we tried different furniture stores and such, but the ones we saw were all way out of our price range. We gave the flea market a try and ended up finding a beautiful table at the flea market for just a little over $100!
Do you shop flea markets? If so, what’s your favorite item you’ve found?
Great buy! Love the table and the dog!!!!!
Thanks! Happy Wednesday! 🙂
I remember we got our dog to stop jumping up on my bed when we were home but as soon as we went to work or school – bang – she was on my bed – tearing sheets, comforters, etc. (no door on my bedroom at the time because of a broken door frame)
I love your solution – and such a beautiful table.

Beautiful table. Our kitchen table is the one my sister and I got when we moved out of the house. I got it when we split our house goods when we stopped living together and I still have it all these years later. You can get some great buys second hand.
Definitely! I rarely buy things new anymore.
I’ve never been to a flea market and not sure where they are around here but you got one great deal. I can’t believe a German shepherd is jumping on the table like that, wow. I thought I had problems keeping the cat off the counters.

I couldn’t believe it either. I had never seen a dog do that before!

Looks like you made a great find! I don’t like shopping but I have to buy groceries and when I need to buy anything else that requires me to go to a physical store then it’s because I have no other choice. I think flea markets are wonderful for finding excellent bargins. You should came away with a fabulous buy! Thanks for visiting & linking up!

I like that it’s square. A table like that would actually fit in our space. It’s so cute!
