The Flea market season er about to start over here.
Not really until after Easter, but I have been keeping en eye out
and managed to find two small ones in the nieghbourhood.
I try to find those related to scouts or charity.
That´s where it´s possible to find great and cheap stuff.
Here´s what I found the first place I went.
A beautiful silver platter.
I´m going to keep that one
and use it for display
and would you believe this
A hole bunch of flower frogs.
I have been hunting those for years and have only found a few until now.
I got 6 of them for almost nothing.
The hardest is to keep the facial expression
and not break into a huge smile when he
mentioned the price - oh boy :-)
and then a bunch of vintage candler clip holders.
I´ve saved some for me this time.
I´m going to use them on each plate at Christmas
Place a napkin with a ribbon around and then the candle holder
on top with a little candle - that is going to be so pretty.
I got a lot though - so some of these have been listed in
the SHOP in set of four, in case someone wanted some
for christmas too or as a pretty decoration all year.
The next flea market was quite okay too
I got these cool vintage games.
I´m sure the exhibitor was thiking what on earth I was
going to use these for - cheap they were - very :-) :-)
inside the one with the colors were these number cards.
At first I had planned to list them in the shop too
but after a second thought I think they would be very
cool date tabs for my upcoming travel journals
What do you think?
The black and white box contained these
very cool black and white drawing cards
Haven´t decided about these yet, but think they would
make great tabs too - I might list some of these
some old ephemera.
I don´t find something like this very often over here.
and then there were this awesome vintage atlas.
It´s huge and the cover is torn and in pieces
but look at those leather strips for closure
and inside it´s filled with the most wonderful old maps
from all over the world.
I´m going to use some of these in my journals too.
as soon as we have some prober daylight over here
I´ll take photos and share some in the shop.
They are big sheet thought, so I´ll
have to bend when shipping.
That was a pretty great start
don´t you think :-)
Wishing you all
A Very Happy Easter
and thank you so much for popping in
