Well I don’t know if I lucked out because of Father’s Day, or if God himself was just smiling down on me today…. but I had the most luck I have ever had at the flea market. There were so many treasures, I ran out of my cash, Josh’s cash and started in on checks! I couldn’t believe it! I was all upset because we got there pretty late (9 a.m.) and it was packed with cars in the parking lot. But for some reason, there was a ton of good stuff, and everywhere people were talking about how slow they were and how sales were just terrible today. It was amazing! Josh and I got some really great stuff and wheeled and dealed with prices because they were desperate for sales! I was in heaven! We were even late to Fathers Day lunch, because I just couldn’t bring myself to leave!
Here are some of the neat goodies I purchased today…. a shabby blue screwdriver, a yellow sprinkler, a “potted ham and tongue” meat pot, a black and cream meat pot, 2 french babydoll style nightgowns….. (The meat pots I have been wanting for awhile. They are very old english antiques, and I love the black and white… they go with my kitchen very well.)
I also got these pretty french plates that are black and white. There is a total of six, and they will look great on my display shelves. A french linen pillowcase with D + J; a black and white sign (not sure what it was for, I just like the black and white). Two old bread pans used for commercial baking; a pretty old grate and a few old flower frogs…..
