Gypsy Fish ~ Gypsy Brocante

Silver Sunday Numero 2....I gathered some of my favorite silver and headed outside to take pictures. I got as far as the back door and quickly took a picture. All of my goodies are flea market finds, I love the way the S&P shakers feel, sort of like a soft cloth??? The cute little brush was one of those finds that you spy on the vendors table and you non-chalantly ask for a price. During this time you look closely at the brush and realize that its SS...when you hear that low price you qickly pay for it and stash it in your bag hoping they won't tackle you down asking for more $$. hahaha. The silver necklace is a locket, I found this lovely piece at the Capital Flea Market in San Jose, CA (all time fav. flea market), I did pay $25.00 for it but so worth it. I love the detail of that lovely maiden reaching out to touch the birds. The inside holds a wedding picture of my hubby and I since it was the first year we were married...21 years ago this June....Ok...I am off to see more silver goodies at Gypsy Fish.  Want to come along?
Have a nice warm lazy Sunday....

P.S.   Friends are you interested in FREE tutorials, great ideas with Silver trays, amazing instructions PLUS a silver GIVEAWAY?......IF SO...you HAVE got to visit Jill at Gypsy Brocante for her Silver Post...you will see what I mean...and don't forget to see her etsy shops...full of eye candy treats.

Syliva, what beautiful flea market finds!!!

Too funny about the trays. I saw a tutorial on it over on another blog back in September I think it was and instantly pulled out a tray I had in my china cabinet. I never use it and now I do!

Easy peasy!

((Hugs))

Doesn't your heart pound a little faster, while you are trying to stay calm, in asking the price of something that you know you have to have, regardless of the price, but hoping for it to be a steal. thanks for sharing.

Hi Sylvia,
What a great post. Your silver treasures are amazing!! I know what you mean about seeing something at a flea market and realizing how cheap the price is when it is worth so much more. That is the best feeling! Have a great week!
Sincerely,
Melinda

Such great silver pieces. I love the salt and pepper shakers! Nice! The locket is so pretty I think it was more then worth the price and the little brush is very sweet. Ah, silver it has a special feel to it.

Anne~Fiona and Twig said...

Wow, you've got some really lovely silver, girl!

LOL, I had to laugh about how you described acting all nonchalant about something, hoping that the dealer will give you a good price. That is SO me! ;-)

Have a great week,
Anne

Sylvia,

I love your precious 'trinket's', especially all of the silver finds. I like to look at everybody's Silver Sunday, my stuff is too pitiful to show. I take shabby to a new level. Lisa

Natacha said...

Love your flea market finds. Isn't it exciting that you never know what you're going to bring home this time?
My husband and I married in October 1988. See you next Sunday.
