To Flea Market, to Flea Market....

...to buy some more junque! If I only had a nickel for every time someone has complimented my coffee sack cart liner while I was out at the flea markets, I could fill my cart up again with treasures!


So, as promised, here are some photos. I simply put an old burlap coffee sack down in my cart and folded it over at the top. This is a vintage cart and is smaller than the newer ones. A little hand stitching to secure it and on to the Ella-embellishments.



I tied a burlap ribbon around the top and added a couple of distressed tags, ribbons and of course my 50 is nifty button.

The burlap is sturdy and I don't have to worry about putting old rusty Ella-ments in and messing up my fabric.

I have 3 burlap sacks and burlap ribbon for sale in my booth in McKinney. The sacks are $10.00 each and the ribbon runs $9.50 per 10 yard roll.

I would love to see everyone else's cart creations.

Gals, this is THE CUTEST CART EVER! I am sorry, but I may have to grab some burlap and make me a liner! It is by far my favorite one out there.
Thanks for coming to see me in the Civic Center in Canton. It was great to see you again. I will be there again next month, so hope to get to see you again! Donna

It's as great as I remember. I actually figured out how to make it work on the larger carts. Take a look at my blog tomorrow for my version. It's not as cute as yours though.
thanks for the idea.

Tina,
Yes, I have burlap ribbon in stock.
I will be in Canton on Thursday if you happen to be going then. I can get you some another way too. It is $9.50 per 10 yard roll. I usually sell it by the roll, but if you just want a certain yardage, I can do that too.
