We truly are blessed with flea market's here in Southern Missouri. If you enjoy flea marketing then you really should make a point to come! We always have flea markets to go to. We always have a favorite booth to check on. We have made friends with several employees. Some a little odder than others. The oddest one's were these two guys that showed us their Halloween pictures from last year!
I have been admiring this embroidered blanket top for weeks now and I finally decided I had to have it! Another future project of mine is too learn how to embroider!
Everyone should have a flea market buddy. Preferably one that likes different things than you. Mine of course is my Mom (Twyla). I would have missed out on this gorgeous black, gold and aqua ric rac had she not been with me. You just never know what you might miss.
My Brother gave me these beautiful cards . I am very lucky to have them both looking out for me!
You have read my past posts about the Valentines I have bought then you probably already know this but I am obsessed with them! I adore them.
Last Saturday we were at the flea market where I have purchased most of them. The ladies that work there are very familiar with us from having to pull off so many price tags on the cards. The owner had saved back a huge box full of vintage Valentines until we came back so that I could get first pick! There were probably about 200 in all but I managed to control myself to about 28 of them.
Mom (Twyla) found this adorable pink kitty today to add to her shelf.
I found a box of Gurley candles at a garage sale for only $3.00!
They are so cute! I had never heard of Gurley candles until I visited Barbara of Oodles and Oodles blog and noticed that she had those listed as one of her favorite things. I looked them up on ebay and discovered how precious they are! So thanks to Barbara I probably would not have even noticed these cuties!
I also found this sweet figurine at a garage sale.
