More Flea Market Treasures

I'm so glad to hear that I'm not the only one with a button obsession. I couldn't believe how many I found last weekend until I dumped them all out on the table. Should have got a picture of that, but I didn't. I did get some pictures of the other things I found at the flea market.

Cute little tractor & trailer with three bottle brush trees.
Five adorable antique baby pics.

Two sweeter than sweet vintage doilies, rhinestone pins, earrings and buttons, pair of vintage angels, four glass knobs, tiny glass bottles (hard to see on left), adorable vintage garter and teeny tiny green cup and saucer.
Bag of misc. pearl necklaces.
Miscellaneous jewelry for craft projects.One of the dealers there that was selling jewelry said I could dig through a couple boxes she had and gave me a baggy to fill for $5.00 which I thought was a great deal.

And finally, I got another pretty chenille spread. This one came out lovely after I gave it a good soak and wash. (Sorry, no picture.) I sure seem to be finding a lot of chenilles lately which you may have noticed. Some will be sold as full spreads and some will be cut up to be sold in my chenille bundles.

This last picture shows my thrifting finds from last week. Got the clock and four rose butter pats at the Salvation Army, the blue rhinestone earrings came from the GW, the knob from the Union Gospel Mission Thrift Store and the rhinestone bracelet from the American Cancer Society Thrift Store.So, are you tired of looking at all the stuff I've been getting lately? If so, you will be happy to know that in my next few posts I will show you some projects I'm working on and some other things as well. Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!

Wow, i wish our thrift stores here in canada had the loot that you come up with! I never find anything that great at our sally ann or bibles for missions stores. I am going to have to visit the thrift stores in oregon when i visit my parents!
Happy Holidays!
