This past weekend my adventuresome thrifter friend Michelle and I hit the local flea market. The hot and humid weather, combined with a lack of vendors (could they have been at Brimfield?), was a bit disheartening. But that didn't stop us from trekking the field in our boots for some scores. The vendors literally left us in the dust (churned up from their departing cars) as we said our goodbyes.
But a lackluster day of thriftin' is better than no thriftin' right?
Here's what I was able to find before everyone packed up...
This sweet devotional poetry book, vintage card and mother-of-pearl buckle atop a pretty white apron:
I love the sweet angel faces on the book:
The card has some tarnished glitter on the flowers:
Here is the sweet vintage white apron:
It has got a delicate peach ribbon attached:
These 12 cocktail napkins came from the same vendor with the apron:
Last Friday I found these other gems while visiting a thrift store near my mother's house. Two repro-mercury candlesticks and more vintage cards:
I just love their colors, imagery and sentiments:
Lovely finds all in all!
I'll be sharing with White Wednesday and Vintage Inspiration Friday. Check out Michelle's unique finds from the dusty flea market, too, as well as her fabulous studio post for Where Bloggers Create.
