Spring is here - finally! Our trees are blossoming, the flowers are sprouting, and I was able to enjoy a glorious morning Sunday at the local flea market. The weather was perfect - comfortable temperatures and sun shining on the crowds that packed the fields.
Just look at what I found....
I fell in love with the soft blue and cream colors on this vintage jewelry box, as well as on this old wooden cigar box. I can't wait to use the vintage lace trim on my creations.
The inside of the cigar box:
I loved the pretty lace trim and monograms on this tablecloth and napkin set. The 1846 German book was a great find, too.
The book's aged pages and script are perfect:
The design on this vintage colored pencil box is just lovely. It rests on some hand-made crochet pieces I found as well...
Lastly, here was a great score - an old wooden tool caddy found in a barn. I know it will be put to good use for entertaining and such. Great patina!
Although I was trying mainly to shop for my Etsy store, I plan on holding on to some of these treasures (for now....).
But I do have a bunch of fabulous vintage horse show ribbons to be listed very soon! Here's a peek at some sets of 3 I will have available. They're all from the 1960's and 1970's:
Have a great spring week my friends, and here's hoping your days at the Flea Markets are just as fun!
