Sunday Flea Market

A perfect day for the flea market - sunshine, warm temps! I got there before 8 a.m., figuring there would likely be lots to look at and I was right! Would you like to take a look?







Looks of wonderful and strange things to see.

I hadn't even been there for 10 minutes, before spotting the first thing I had to buy. And so it continued. I just kept finding things - at a reasonable price (after all, I always find things; I just don't buy everything I find) - and it just kept on going.




Lovely old photographs.


Couldn't pass up the round nose pliers.


Some lovely vintage and antique jewelry bits and pieces.


Some lovely old stampings from France.


Frozen Charlottes - much too good to pass up.


Some gorgeous old pillow cases and other vintage fabrics with lace. Soooo soft. And just look at those mother of pearl buttons! Too good to be true!

Thanks for joining me! Hope everyone has a wonderful Sunday!

Renate, you are the queen of the flea markets! I can't believe the treasures you find. Those buttons are too gorgeous! And I loved the wooden bowls in the one photo - had an instant picture of bread dough rising in my mind... am I German or what?!? Happy Sunday! Love, Silke

Thanks for that great walk through! I went to the flea market today as well but could not take the heat and only went to see Mary the bead lady.

Oh Hermanita,

You should be patting yourself on the back with todays haul!!!! What a good eye you have Oh and your vintage linens & lace are just way to special to pass up. It looks like the piece on the right side, with just a corner of the lace is Danish. It's a traditional hand tied pattern!!! Oh and your MOP little flower buttons are ever so cute!!!

Okay back to the grindstone. :) I am still unpacking and putting away all my early Christmas Love stash!!! Pictures tomorrow

Renate, I always enjoy coming along to the flea market with you. I like how you take pictures of the entire table, so we can see all of the wonderful wares. And just look at that seriously old lock! WOW. I agree...the old linen with the lace is beautiful and not to be passed up! :-)

The Gritty Bird said...

OH Renate! WOWIE... I just love all the wonderful goodies that you found.

Could I go with you next time and since your hubby works in the film industry, he could set something up so I could be there live via some techno thingy and we could shop together. Now that would be awesome!!!
Nice goodies!!
