Flea market finds

Flea markets are great fun,
the thrill of the hunt and never
knowing what you will come across.

Even though my 2 local flea markets are
minute in size they still have those "Oh MY GOSH"
finds.

 Can you believe I almost passed on this
demijohn? Yes, crazy me walked away with the
thought of checking out the rest of the
flea goodies.
There was no one with me to whack me on the head and
say Duh!!!

After taking in the rest of the flea
I walked back and bought it!!
The cute wire basket, wooden corbels and
wooden shoe shape holder
also came home with me.

The two vintage mottled grey enamelware
dutch ovens will fit in perfect with my
garden decor.

Did you find any goodies this week?

I am linking up to Tales from Boggeritaville for

Have a great rest of the week,
Sylvia

Being a holiday week there were slim opportunities so I only hit thrift stores. Doing the thrifty thing we enjoyed FREE outdoor concerts and fireworks several days.

Oh you are a woman after my own heart. Your finds are fantastic! I too am a thrift nut, here in New Zealand. Come over to my blog and see what I do with mine.

We don't have so many flea markets, but loads of Op-shops (oportunity shops) as we call them here.

I am going to follow you please feel free to come and join me to.

Unbelievable things you found! I love the demijohn and I am so glad it was still there! If I had been with you, I would have thumped you on the head the first time...:)
Thanks for coming to THT

Hi Sylvia.
I would've knocked you on the head *winks* because that's a really COOL demijohn!! I'm glad it was still there waiting for you... They almost never are for me! Vanna
