Flea Market Halloween

vickiehowell Twice a year a HUGE flea market takes place in Texas, spanning two cities: Round Top & Warrenton (about an hour and half from Austin). Spanning miles of country pasture, it’s legendary amongst antique enthusiasts and

thrifters alike. I have an insanely devoted-to-the-hunt friend, who even planned her wedding around the market’s schedule! (*cough* Jennifer Perkins) Being way less on tapped-in to the antique circuit myself, I’ve missed “Round Top” forthe past 6 years. Alas. Last week however, the missing streak came to an end. My friend Noelle and I packed-up the babies, and hit the open road. Destination: second-hand-treasure salvation! Although the market wasn’t the beacon of mid-century modern light I’d hoped for, it did not disappoint in the vintage Halloween department. I was thrilled at all of the haunted hand-me-downs; so much so that I shopped less and snapped more pictures so I could share them with you today.  Ladies and gentlemen, I give you what I like to call, Trinkets of Terror!

I am, doll parts.

I'm way a-head of you!

Whoooo are the most awesome owls ever? It's these guys! (L: fireplace decor, R: ice bucket)

Old time-y children are scary.

Frightening '40s!
