Flea Market Finds

Well, we finally had a nice day for the flea market! It didn't start out nice, it was cloudy, windy and chilly BUT the weathermen promised a nice day. So, off I went! I did pretty well this trip. I have 2 pictures up with more to come. I found 2 old school chairs to spray paint for a little "secret garden-ish" area in my front courtyard. They were only $1 each! SOLD to ME!!! I will take before and afters of those. Then I went on the hunt for a bubble gum machine for hubby's office. SCORE!!! I found a brand new King Carnival gumball machine for $15 and came home to check the original price $49!!! Not bad!!! That will be his Father's Day gift and since I found the machine so inexpensively I ordered him the antique-look pedestal stand for it. :-) I will post pics of those after Father's Day. When I found everything I had gone to find...I decided to look for things that I just plain old liked! Here they are....

Skeleton Keys to hang from some pretty vintage ribbon....$2!!!!

Clip-on pearl-like earrings...50 cents (one has been repaired but that's ok they're just for crafting). Aren't they sweet?

I am excited to go back again! There were so many vendors and they had really nice stuff! In other news, the pumpkins are starting to really get going on growing. Amazing what some warm weather will do! Emma has been having pee accidents in her crate since her spaying. I hope that resolves itself soon!
Hope all is well with you all!!! Have a great day!

Great finds ! We used to have a gumball machine...many moons ago.

LOVE the skeleton keys!

Kim, you really scored. Skeleton keys do not usually come that cheap, especially on a ring like that!

I am sorry to hear about Emma's little setback. Could her crate be a little bit big for her? What does the vet say?

I can not wait to hit the flea markets this summer! What a find those skeleton keys are! Maybe I will get lucky enough to find some this year!!

Wendy said...

awesome finds! and yay for finding what you were looking for!!

I need to take new pumpkin photos. Im kind of worried, the plant itself (well, the leaves) arent looking so hot, but the pumpkins & stems seem fine.
