Our Saturday Finds




As many of you all know we love to spend our Saturdays at flea markets and yesterday was no different. We had such a wonderful time yesterday and found many goodies to show for it!


This was from a bag full of vintage ric rac. As we were checking out we had many women around us looking at our arm fulls of stuff and the lady in front of us saw this and exclaimed "What a treasure!" That always makes me feel good when someone else thinks I've found a treasure too!





Oh, I thought the dress pattern is one of the most prettiest ones I've ever seen.








We hit the vintage card jackpot yesterday!



Here is one of the many sweet cards we found.






I spotted this box filled with vintage cards!











Here are the cards that was inside the box. A lovely collection of them with glitter detail.







This poodle planter will look lovely with Mom's (Twyla's) collection of planters.




I am slowly building a collection of vintage linens and this is one I had to have for my collection.





Isn't this fabric gorgeous?!






It's from this beautiful vintage apron I found yesterday!





There is something so appealing about a box filled with ribbon. Don't you think?







I found a bag filled with these little bits of cut outs to make these little cups.







Also in the bag were these vintage Easter cards!








I saw the name of this book and knew it was coming home with me. How funny!








The ladies checking us out at the flea market and the women in the steadily growing lines behind us were not real thrilled with having to wait while every one of these cards were added up separately but we just kept finding more and more of these around the flea market in different booths.





I hope you enjoyed seeing our Saturday finds!



Enjoy the rest of your weekend, Lindsey and Twyla

Hi Ladies... I must tell you that with each passing photo of your AWESOME finds, I gasped and oooooo'd louder 'n louder! I ♥ every single thing you showed... Lindsey, I totally agree with your thoughts about the Vintage Dress Pattern... beautiful. And, I collect Vintage Embroidered pieces as well... such a lovely piece you found. Now, ALL of those Vintage cards are just amazing! I have a real "thing" for lil Yellow Chicks, so I really sighed over the sweet Easter ones! And I think that Pink Puppy with the white flowers is just way too cute! But Ohhh My Goodness... those Valentine's! What a Haul... LOL ... My absolute favorite of the bunch is the Lemon Girl in the blue dress, wanting to know if her Valentine can squeeze her into his Heart! And with a Juice Reamer, no less! ~swoons~ Ohhhh... those folding Nut Cups are so neat... and, just ♥ Twyla's Poodle Planter... Precious!

YIKES! I've really rambled on... but I'm just so excited about seeing all of your goodies! When I grow up, I want to be your neighbor and go "Thrifting" with y'all... God bless...

~hugs 'n prayers~

The yellow chickies were my favorite too. What a fabulously successful Saturday. We're 3 of a kind on that front. I think I found a 1965 turquoise ford truck on our Sunday drive that I may have to drag home. :SIGH:

Can I ask you, Where do you store your vintage cards? I have a small collection, and I am looking for the best way to keep them.

What a haul! You did great.

I love the old dress patterns. The styles were so feminine and pretty. Now don't laugh, do you ever look at the covers of OLD Harlequin Romances? They were pretty to with the old dresses and men in suits.

Sherry said...

Wow! You guys did hit the jackpot! I love the vintage ric rac and the patterns the most!! I would just sit and start at it everytime I walked into my craft room!

Have a wonderful day!

What wonderful finds....so many goodies I can hardly pick out a favorite....I love the apron and the vintage fabric and cards...they're all great finds.
I was just stopping over to tell you that I've scheduled a Thursday Post that shows off my cute tags that I recieved from you. I hope that is okay. If it's not please just let me know. It just shows the tags and links to your etsy shop in case anyone is interested in getting some for themselves. Thanks again girls....have a great week!

Your treasures are so wonderfully soothing in this hectic world.

It's just like Holly said --'tears to my eyes.'

Thanks for keeping the nostalgia alive.
