Deals and Steals

This past weekend my sister-in-law Christie and I took a trip to Midland Arts & Antiques Market.  If you live in Indy and have never been- go! It's a great, huge antique mall with all sorts of treasures.  I do think many of their booths are a bit more expensive than other antique malls out there, but they have a lot of quality pieces, including a lot of beautiful furniture.


We went to Midland with no particular purpose in mind, other than the fact that I've been itching for a new furniture-painting project.  (Ignore the fact that I have multiple unfinished projects at home.  I certainly am). Unfortunately a lot of the things I loved were outside my price range, but I did come home with this mirror for only $30.

My plan is to paint it either creamy white or gray, distress it a bit, and hang in on this wall in the dining room.

And of course I couldn't leave Midland without adding another Ball jar to my collection.

I loved the little size, intense bluish green color, and the bicentennial eagle on the side.  (See Bobby, it is different than the others I own!) For $7 I couldn't resist.  I believe my exact quote was "Oh yeah, this little guy's coming home with me".

But the most exciting purchase of the day was actually a Craigslist find.  I've been looking for some dressers and other pieces of furniture that are in good shape but just need a paint job.  This one definitely fit the bill for $35, including  a matching mirror! 

For now this picture from Migonis Home is serving as my inspiration, but I may change my mind between now and then.


There you go- my weekend deals and steals! Anyone else finding anything good from Craigslist or a thrift shop recently?  Anyone in Indy have suggestions of "must visit" thrift shops?


  1. i've never been there but with indy only a solid hour away maybe sometime i will make the trip to shop there! I love that little jar too.

  2. You should definitely check it out next time you're in Indy! It's worth it. And then make a day of it and get lunch at Cafe Patachou- the perfect afternoon!


I love comments!
