I had a great morning! I got up early and mom picked me up at 8:30 to go to an indoor flea market. Two of my Dad’s sisters are visiting from out of state and they each brought their eldest son with them. We met up with them and my other aunt who lives here for some good old treasure hunting.
I, of course, had no trouble finding anything. My first purchase of the morning was this fun vintage cocktail shaker:
I thought it was a must-have because the pattern was so loud and cheery and also it came with a spoon for stirring that hangs off the lid, which I’d never seen before. I spent $10, which is more than I’d pay in a thrift store, but less than I’d pay online or in an antique store. I didn’t plan to purchase much more since the place isn’t that big and there weren’t many tables with my style of stuff.
But I kept digging and I kept finding….
Everything pictured above I plan on keeping. The three pieces of jewelry cost a total of $4! The magazine was sort of an impulse buy. The dealer at that particular table was so sweet I felt I had to look around until I found something. He saw me struggling to hold my jewelry tray under my arm and he handed me a plastic bag, even though I wasn’t even looking at this stuff. So I rifled through his magazines until I found this one for $3. I’ll have to scan in some of the advertisements in it some rainy day. Here is one page I liked:
*EDIT* I also found an awesome purse that I may sell or keep, I haven’t decided, as well as some jewelry items I am listing on Etsy. There was a second half to this post that somehow got erased. I do not feel like typing it all again so I guess I’ll post a part two tomorrow!
