Flea Market Finds

They come from many places, Flea Markets, Swap meets, Opportunity shops, thrift stores, second hand stores, hand me downs, side of the road, junk yards and hard waste collection days. They are treasures, more valuable to me than their sticky dot or hand written price tags say.

Her Library Adventures has invited one and all to share their Flea Market Finds and I am sharing some things I found at my local this morning.


A funky little plate for my wall plate collection that will eventually, actually go on a wall. An old ice cream scoop with worn out handle, imagine how many scoops she's got under her belt! A corer that I intend to use as a holepokeroutera for jam biccies and last but not least, a pot strainer. I had a moment when I saw this, a thriftgasm if you would.

An enamel now to be fruit bowl in my favorite cherry red.


A lovely little tin that once had fudge, but will now sit on my dressing table for my jewelery. Perfect little roses on a teeny pillowcase. All this for $3.70!!! Heaven.
