Join the "I'm a Flea Marketeer Party"!

Woohoo! It's our first ever blog party and we are all really hoping our invited guests show up! For those who haven't been following along, today is the day you can share your favourite flea market/thrift shop/yard sale treasure with us and give us all a peek!


If you have a favourite treasure to share with us on your blog, please add your link below. Perhaps it's a favourite flea market find from days gone by, or maybe you just snagged it this past weekend. Either way, we want to see it! And, like every good blog party hosted by MckLinky, there are a few rules to make sure things run smoothly:

1.Add the permalink to the specific blog post, not your general blog address.
2.Link back to the party from your post so that your readers can come and see what you are sharing today!
3.Please visit as many of the other participants as possible and leave comments. That’s what a blog party is all about! We'll be around, too, checking out everyone's finds!
4.Double-check to make sure your link works and goes to the right page so it doesn’t get deleted!

Because it is our first party, we are launching it with a big old party favour, give-away style. So, if you link up to our party, consider yourself entered to win this, courtesy of Ki:



Coffee Bean Bag:
Made from recycled coffee bean bags exclusively for Junk Revolution
Black or brown graphic lettering on burlap
Lined with durable cotton fabric
Snap closure, small open pocket inside
Cotton web handles
10" T x 10" W x 3" DP

And, of course, if you tweet on Twitter or post about the party on Facebook, you will earn yourself another entry!

But enough about that! It's time to play show and tell, so please join the party below!!

I've never done this before, so I hope I get it right! I just entered the post I did on our antique schoolhouse table. That's my favorite flea market find in our whole house!

Whew, I feel like I've run a marathon...I've linked to our blog post above, and posted on my personal profile and our business page on Facebook! (I don't Twitter, sorry, but I'm happy to spread the word about the Party!) Now I can start checking out all of the other links.....

Gail said...

Oh Wow just discovered your blog and have signed up to be a follower! I've entered my finds from an auction this past weekend.

Sadly Linda, I'm dumb as a stump when it comes to this Mr. Linky thing... and that's a shame because I'm all about treasure hunting for vintage finds. I wanted you to know that I'm checking other treasures out on the links provided.

Susie from Bienvenue said...

Hi there! So glad to join in on your fun! I posted about going to the longest yardsale with Layla from the lettered cottage and Rhoda from Southern Hospitality. Junkin's always better when you share it with your buddies~

cindy@cottage instincts said...

We have exactly ZERO decent fleas in my neck of the woods, so I found my treasures at a local antique mall. Hope that counts!

The Flying Bee said...

I am excited to try this! I hope I can link it all up the right way. This is so fun!

Shanty 2 Chic said...

Lynn said...

I added the link. I'll have to do a photo of my item later but am excited about this site and wanted to get it on my blog. I'll write about it in a couple of days.

Twice Remembered said...

How fun! I joined up - my entire cottage kitchen is decorated with flea market, yard sale, and thrift store finds! There's no better way!

Thanks for inviting us to join your party and I look forward to more!

Claudia said...

Just posted my flea market find. Thanks for having this fun party!

Margo said...

Hey Linda, I'm sure you don't have enough to do already. I added my first link wrong, I liked to my general blog site. So if you'd remove that one that would be great. I did the second one right though. It helps to read the rules first, huh???
