We had very special visitors last week at the 45 Flea Market and Antiques in Meridian. Eddie Ross and Jaithan Kochlar who write a column for Southern Living and Woman’s Day on Flea Market finds visited us.

I have been reading Eddie Ross’s blog for several years, and immediately knew who they were! I felt like I was meeting a celebrity! Eddie and Jaithan shopped the flea market for items for the article. I don’t know if they will use it, but the gold jewelry box in his hand was picked for a makeover. It was a local estate purchase.
This picture shows more of their purchases: A brass door knocker and numbers from New Orleans estates-both from my son’s booth.

They also purchased this Mississippi basket that I had redone long ago and had in a corner of my booth for Connor. He has his own shelves and helped me with my booth last summer. They plan to remake this with a Mississippi map…don’t know why I didn’t think of that!
It was great meeting them, and getting inspired by their ideas. The article on the Flea Market will be published next spring, and I’ll be sure to let you know!
