Those of you that stop by here regularly know about my flea market obsession and that Sunday is the day! Today was a particularly wonderful day at the fleamarket and I have lots of treasures to prove it! I just wish I could take the rest of you with me when I go hunting. How much fun would that be?
some buttons and a spool of thread
These are not so very old, but I liked the pattern. And I adore old wooden spools of thread!
a little box of 92 guitar pegs - that's what is says on the box, at least!
I was absolutely smitten with this little box! I have no idea at the moment what I will do with these wooden pegs with the mother of pearl inlay. I will give it some time for an idea to germinate.
old enameled watch faces
I found a whole collection of these in various stages of, shall we say, shabby chic? I am looking forward to using these!!
more treasures, possibly silver
Will you look at that piece of souvenir bracelet from Paris! Isn't it fantastic??!
more bits and pieces of old jewellery
doll parts from Thuringia
My highlight of the day! Old doll parts from Thuringia, in not so bad condition. These are rather small ones, the doll torso measures just a wee bit over two inches. The dealer had a whole selection of larger dolls, maybe about 5 inches tall, complete with arms and legs, too! Too big and too expensive for my purposes, but wonderful to look at. And will you take a look at those glass doll eyes! So amazing!!
What a great flea market day! We saw lots of other wonderful things also - today, there were alot of violins and violas. Also, fantastic old furniture - but I don't have any more room for anything large in the house (thank goodness)!!
