Junking Finds: Grand Rapids Flea Market

Pin It

Hello, friends! I thought I'd show you a little junking goodness that I found a couple weekends ago at the Grand Rapids Flea Market in Grand Rapids, MN. I have grande plans to incorporate each of these pieces into the WhisperWood Cottage decor. I love some history and patina stirred into the mix.

This huge sign is from a resort that was owned by my friend's grandparents. She spent a lot of time there as a child. As she did not have a spot for it, I gladly adopted it. Stay tuned for its reveal in the guest room!

This fabulous antiseptic sterilizer has brass accents, glass shelving, and delicious typography! Can't wait to show you more of it!!

Can you guess which room these are going in? That's right! the home gym! Clang! Clang!  It's a TKO!



This vintage doctor's scale is perfect for the master bath. It's accurate and it even has the height measurement! Love!
Not too shabby for a couple hours at the flea market, right? Now, I'm headed over to Rhoda's and see what great treasures everyone else has found!

  3. These are terrific finds! I collect authentic antique signs. The antiseptic sterilizer (medicine cabinet) is also something I would have snatched up.

    Thanks for sharing.

  6. Could I adjust the height thingy to make me 6' tall...then I'd be weight appropriate!
    Great finds one and all...but oh mylanta...that signage. Love it. Explain to me the last line will you? Is that the name of three lakes or lost kids?
