Flea Finds


Hello again dear blog, how is everyone doing?? Well, it looks like I'm slackin' off again... But not to worry, I really did have pictures ready and posts to type up, but I wasn't able to get on my computer all week due to technical problems. Darn these electronics which we spend soo much money on, and then after a few years of working fine problems arise! Well anyhoo, like I had said in my previous post, I was going to the Folk Festival again!! Woo Hoo, Man was that fun this time around!! I walked around for a bit, grabbed a quick bite to eat, and then rushed into the antique's barn. That's really the reason I went for the second time, and I just could not wait to find some pretties! I was soo excited, and since this time I had plenty of time to make my way around to each of the dealers, I took my good old time looking at everything I could! (without getting pushed away by a fellow antiquer!)
As you can see from the photos, I did buy more then I brought back last week, and even with the hot and humid weather this past Saturday, I stayed and searched and searched. I was in there for such a long time, that I kept going back and forth to each comparing what I liked better. The dealers all looked at me as if I were crazy. Unfortunately the vintage hankies had been picked over, and unlike on the opening day when I was greeted by pretty florals and pastels, this past visit left me with a bin of brown and orange 70's flashback pieces. So I did not purchase any hankies, BUT!! I did get two new aprons, one that I did not see last week which is the really pretty turqoise and white one above. I couldn't believe I had missed it, and it is now my favorite among my ahem... "large collection ;)" (wow, 3 aprons in all!) I then traveled on over to this woman who had a bunch of old post cards, magazines, pins and textiles. That is where I picked up the Christmas postcards which I plan to use in my Christmas cards for future years, and those pretty rose "tie" pins. I highly doubt some man stuck them into his tie, since they are heavy and the "pin part" is very large. I believe it might have been a piece to a garden statue or something else. With bags in hand, I traveled on over to this very cheap glass dealer, where I picked up those two glass jars above. I love the old "Ball" jars, and even though I'm not sure what I'm gonna do with either of them, they will be used I tell ya!! Finally I went back to the "Apron Lady," poor woman, I should have asked for her name. She had some boxes full of old photos and calenders, and thats where I picked up the vintage winter photos from the 30's. If you could see a closer view , you would see it's the same family in both. I was also going to get this BEAUTIFUL picture of an old Hollywood German Shepard named Fang something from the 30's. But it was just a little out of my price range. Darn, I wish I would have gotten it, because now I miss it!! Oh well, I hope you enjoy the pictures and just wait until my next post, you will all be loving it!! Wishing you vintage finds, and some nice sunny days ( Boy, it's a beautiful day today!!)

Wonderful finds! I love the photograph of the jars. They're lovely to look at, just like that, but I fill my clear ones with old white/cream buttons. The blue ones hold other things in my craft room.
You take beautiful photos!
