Happy Tuesday! I know most of us where lucky enough to have a 3 day weekend, but let me tell I’m still struggling this morning! So sleepy! I got hooked watchingThe Night Of on HBO and I may or may not have been up till 1:30 finishing it. So good! Highly recommend!
We didn’t have big plans for Labor Day weekend so we decided to go on a little adventure to Stormville Airport Flea Market. Jon and I love to flip flea market finds and have been itching to go to Stormville after seeing it featured on Flea Market Flip many, many times. It was an hour and 45 min drive from us, which wasn’t too bad. We did get asked a million times where we were going since we were in the car for so long, but the boys love treasure hunting so, they were excited to go.
The flea market is only opened certain weekends of the year so, it’s best to check their website before venturing out. It’s also only open from 8am-4pm, which means an early day for most.
Here is a peek into our day:
The flea market is broken up into two different sections. One side is almost like a street fair with booth after booth selling cosmetics, t-shirts, hats, puppets, etc. Basically in my opinion weird stuff that I would rather order online or go to the mall for. We did a little of this section to see if there was anything new and exciting, but really just wanted to find treasures so we quickly made our way to the antique market section. This is the area that you see on Flea Market Flip.
We saw a lot of the typical finds from Flea Market Flips. Lots of booths with old crates.
Lots of window panes and old doors:
Cool letters where sprinkled throughout this marque I was a favorite of mine.
Lots of vintage suitcases:
I loved these chairs. A perfect set of 4! I was a little too eager for them. I use to haggle like the best of them, but some reason I have gotten worse as the years go on and my poker face is totally gone.
Prices were all over the place. Some items were super expensive. Like the prices people try to resell the furniture on Flea Market Flip, but others were totally affordable. These bistro chairs were only 4 for $75 and they were in great condition.
Colorful chests were everywhere.
I loved this cute metal drawers. The painted caning detailing on the drawer faces were right up my alley, but I didn’t have room for it at home so, it got left behind.
Barn wood for sale!
Lots of vintage rugs!
Overall it was fun to go and check it out. I did wish they had more booths in the antique market section and less of the flea market section with the t-shirts, etc. Also I wish the prices could have been a little better. No one really wanted to haggle and some of the booth owners were straight out rude. One guy was so nasty with Hudson when he was trying to buy a toy from his booth.
If you are in the NY area it is a fun place to check out! I’ll be posting the one item I had to leave behind due to it’s crazy high price and what I did actually bring home via instagram today. Stay tuned!
