2nd Time Around: Special Visitors at the Flea Market

Welcome to 2nd Time Around. Please join us by linking a post that features something that is a 2nd Time Around to you…something from a garage sale, flea market, thrift store, estate sale, etc. Please link your post rather than your blog, and link back to this blog. Thank you for participating.


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.

You can read more about it on the Facebook page:

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.



Eddie and Jaithan hunting for treasures in the Flea Market.




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!

If you haven’t visited his blog, be sure to drop by:

Thanks for stopping by, and please consider adding your link to your 2nd Time Around post.

Hi Diane, I'm back. I realize this is last weeks post but I joined up anyway. You may be traveling just like I have been doing. Also, I have had 2 plus weeks of company. No time for blogging. The last of my company left yesterday. My computer had a big day yesterday. HA!

I loved reading this post and I would have been excited too, meeting Edie and Jaithon. Love your photo with Eddie. The basket is so unique. I know they will make it even better with a map design. It may even make it to their article coming up.

Happy days to you.
Love, Jeanne
