We also ran into Diane (Molly Mo's) and Martha. Here they are all smiling because they all found some really great stuff.
Here's a picture of what I found. Neat huge vintage suitcase, glass lamp, lampshade frame, pearls, bags of buttons and fixer upper rhinestone bling, little pink cup, pink foot massager, and neat blue box. In one of the bags of jewels was a really neat vintage ladies watch. A bulova. That was worth the $5 price alone.
These are the coolest things I saw at the flea market. Two pink dental cabinets. I have seen these go for a lot on ebay. Of course by the time I saw them they were being bought by my good friend Diane.
We needed to head home so we didn't get any of the yummy hash browns with gravy that I love. Oh well, sure didn't need it anyway.
On Saturday, my daughter and I went mattress shopping. What fun! (kidding) I had just gotten her a new (vintage) black metal bed frame ($25.00 on craigslist-gotta love it!) and she really needed a new mattress to go with it. We were successful and found a good one at a good price. But, the best part of the day is that I stopped at a couple estate sales along the way. I didn't find much, but was really happy with what I got.
Cute vintage pink plastic cabinet, fabric vanity tray with roses, more pearls, pearl and rhinestone hair pins, old metal lunch box, pink & white striped pillowcases, crocheted runner, vintage slip and two hankies.
I worked my lunch lady job today and will go back again on Wednesday. Tomorrow I promised Isabel that I would help her get her blog up and running. I am so excited that Isabel will finally have a blog and will provide a link to it from my blog. She has some incredible collections and is an amazingly talented seamstress/quilter. I can't wait for you so see her fun stuff.
Pictured on the left is another rhinestone lot I won on ebay. I always hate to say "won" as it sounds like I didn't have to pay for it, but of course, I did. Not much though.
I have a little trip coming up next week that I am excited to share with you. I will be heading south to see my Dad in Temecula and go to the Long Beach Flea Market. So, until then, no more thrifting/shopping/ebay/ craigslist. I only have a week and a half to go so you would think that wouldn't be too hard, but for someone like me, it is. Anyway, just want to make sure I have some moola to spend down south.
Have you seen this yet? I swiped this photo off of Heather's flickr page. OMG! This is beautiful. It is her swap for me for the "Junque in my Trunk" swap she is hosting. I am embarrassed to say that I have had her goodies ready for about two weeks now, just haven't decorated the box. I will get on that right away as this little beauty is probably on it's way shortly and I know that Heather's other two swap partners, Niki and Lori have already sent theirs to Heather. Oops! I am in the company of some very talented ladies. I hope my package doesn't suffer by comparison. My only consolation is that I know Heather will love what's inside the "trunk."
This post took me a really long time as I was having trouble posting pictures. Blogger just wouldn't let me yesterday so now it is being published in the wee hours of Tuesday morning.
