This flea market is held indoors but it may have well been outside. The manager of the building forgot to turn the heat on. It was FREEZING. We weren't layered up like we usually are for our local flea so poor Maddie's teeth were chattering and I bought a coffee just so she could hold onto something warm. Just so you don't think I was torturing my child, I did trade her my North Face down jacket for her hoodie.
The last time I was at this particular flea market, there was a seller in the very front room who had tons of smalls and linens. I remember that I bought a bunch of stuff from him for super cheap. He said he was really wanting to just get rid of this stuff so he could quit coming to the flea. Well guess what? Two years later, he was still there.
I bought two pie birds for my collection. Maddie convinced me that I didn't already have the blue one. She was wrong. But what could I expect? It was still dark outside!
Love the colors on this apron.
The Morning Glory design on this tablecloth matches my tins and breadbox.
After we made our first pass through the front room, we headed into the main part of the market. I spotted this at the farthest point of the room and just about broke into a full sprint to get to it
Do you guys know how long I have searched for one of these for? I was willing to pay any price for it but luckily I bundled with some other stuff and the guy gave me a deal. Three times I set it down while looking at other things and each time, someone picked it up. I finally put it in my car. I wasn't taking any chances!
I bought these two Hazel Atlas child's mugs from him too.
The Cookie Jar was also something that I have had on my list for a while. The 4 cup measuring cup is by Anchor Hocking. I can always use another measuring cup and I love the shape of this one.
I bought the Swanky Swig on the off chance that I didn't already have it. Well I didn't! The tape tin is for my collection that I bring out at Christmas and Maddie picked up another plastic pig bank for her collection.
I bought this dish towel and tablecloth from the sweetest little old man who insisted he wrap them both in tissue paper for me because they were "really old".
This is my second chenille baby blanket. The weather really needs to warm up around here so I can wash it and hang it outside to dry.
Not one to pass up anything donkey related, even if it is a little goofy.
It has been forever since I have found any matchbox holders for my collection. These two were in a $3 grab bag along with this old box of matches.
With the mass quantities of vintage valentines out this time of year, I only allow myself to buy singles of the ones I collect, donkeys and cowboys.
I bought this cute framed valentine collage from woman who told me they were hers when she was younger. Who gets rid of things like that?! She also had another cowboy themed card for me.
How cute are the graphics on these old lightbulb boxes?
I bought a box of old cards for a buck hoping for something cute.
Always happy to find vintage Easter.
Last but not least, some Halloween picks to add to my jar next Halloween.
I think it is safe to say that I got my vintage fix for a while but don't think for a second I am going to take a break! Our local flea is this weekend but this haul will be pretty hard to top.
Linking up with SYC Thursday & Junkin' Joe.
Until next time...
