Flea Market Pt 2. The goods

These are the goods that came home with me ,I can already hardly wait for the next flea in the fall. I was even thinking of being a vendor myself this time.I just love old ticking fabric pillows.They sure don't make them like they used to!
And another doll, a girl can never have too many right??
Some tea stained trims ,old keys and watch faces.
I couldn't resist this old green pom pom trim.
Picked up this cute sack cloth towel to use in the kitchen, not that I have used it yet . Some old heart picks for corsages I make and things.
Lots of these, wish I would have bought more!!
And say hello to the perfect purse from Anthropologie!!! Brand new from a seller who actually lives in the same town as me! It's so nice to meet people who are like you !
I must confess I have a vintage dress and crinoline addiction, found these two at the flea.
I could just look at them all day !
So much so I tossed them all on the couch ,I had them hanging about my room but needed a pretty place to keep them .
And so here is what I did ! I bought a rack to hang them all on and it is now in my living room.I would have perferred an old rack but this will due for now until I can find one!!

Hope you enjoyed the flea as much as I did! Friday is the big create blog party day! Will have the full list of blogs who will be creating posted friday am or thursday eve!!!

What beautiful finds. You are so lucky to add these beautiful treasures to your home. Just like Elyse says, your rack of vintage dresses reminds me of Rachel Ashwell. Really makes me want to start a collection for myself :)

Oh, so many treasures! Naturally, I love the little dolly. And the ticking pillows are lovely. I'm working with some similar fabric right now for a doll dress for a client. Great crinoline solution and so pretty too!

Prudence said...

love those dresses. I was a vendor at the funky junk sisters show last october. I wanted to sell again at this one, but it just wasn't going to happen. I should have come shopping, but that is a long drive just for shopping :)


Very nice finds!!! Looks like you had a great time.
What are you going to make with the horse ribbons???
