Ever since reading this post on Style North about The Junction Flea, I have wanted to go! Amy also posted about it, and that just fueled the fire. I can’t believe I learned about this so late in the game! For those of you who don’t know, the Junction Flea happens every second Sunday of the month right at (you guessed it) The Junction in Toronto. Admission is $2 per person and worth all 200 pennies. You’re about to see why!
I definitely made my brother pose with me for a quick photo. We are total dorks. My favourite part of the market was the styling. Booths were well styled (though some obviously too carefully curated as well) and the feel of the place was easy going and fun – the streamers and bunting helped! People were super friendly, and there’s not a lot of haggling happening – prices were pretty fair, for the most part.
I came home with an old book (shocking, I know), a map of France to be framed (eek!!!), some old kitchen utensils to be hung (one of which is not pictured), a golden necklace (also not pictured), a sweet little lidded container (actually purchased just outside of the flea at a nearby shop), an old tobacco container (ugh… didn’t take a photo again!), and that awesome metal bucket that just reminds me of my grandmother so much I NEEDED to have it in my house. I can’t decide if it should be hung on the wall or used as a planter yet…
hugs and kisses!
