West End Salvage

I discovered this great booth while at the flea in Okoboji Iowa. West End Salvage, located in DesMoines. Three story building filled with architectural salvage and unique pieces they make using the salvaged parts. I love the legs on this table.
This table top was made by pressing tin ceiling tiles flat, piecing them onto this table top and using tiny nails to fasten them down, click on the picture to enlarge and check out the detail.

This awesome old arrow went home with me. It was one of those to die for items. You all know what I mean.

I love anything with lots of little drawers.

This is an old sleigh cut in half to make an awesome coffee table.

Okoboji Flea Part 2

Just a few more pictures from the flea market. Loved these old toys.
This would be so great on the deck or patio filled with flowers for the summer and other seasonal displays the rest of the year.

Ships wheel, great for the lake cottage.

This vintage beauty was already sporting a sold tag when I saw it.

Okoboji Flea

The flea markets on Memorial Day weekend held in Lake Okoboji were a great time. This was our first trip to the lake area. It was beautiful and the flea markets were fun. They are held every Memorial Day, July 4th, and Labor day weekends. We will definetley go back.I loved this old bike. It would be great as yard art.
I'm not sure what I'd do with these but they sure were fun. Halloween maybe?

Great vintage kitchen.

Get a hat for church on Sunday.

More great yard art.
