Recently, on a perfect Fall day, we spent the day thrifting at the Golden Nugget Flea Market in Lambertville New Jersey. It was sunny and warm and Kiran’s first real thrifting expedition (not counting the countless trips when he was a baby in the stroller where he had been blissfully oblivious to the treasures around him). This time however, he enjoyed touching everything much to the dismay of the vendors. While Kiran didn’t find anything to buy I found tons of stuff but I limited myself to only a couple of things.
I found this fabulous vintage wood and plaster frame for $7:
The frame is not in great shape and the plaster is crumbling in places. I need to super glue the plaster back, cleaning it thoroughly and paint it a bright glossy red. Scott took that picture of me and Kiran in the Summer. I love the roughness of the concrete and the chain link fence against the ornate details of the frame.
I also found this amazing painting (it is not a print) for $15:
We left the flea market around noon and went to a picnic area by the lake for lunch. I can’t wait to go back to this flea market. There were lots of vendors and lots of great items at good prices.
