Saturday Flea Market Shopping

I managed to make it to the flea market this morning. I found some pretty cool stuff.
 -Some old jewelry to remake into new things
-A pack of dominoes to beat up and age
-Three pairs of gloves (to make into glovettes?)
-A few books to get text and pics from for jewelry, including a Big Book of Christmas and a couple French text books.

And for myself, I bought a wonderful old book of poetry and a silverplate tea server! I collect tiny tea sets. Even though its a little larger, it will look pretty in my collection. I paid $4 for it and from what I can see online, they were made in the 1800s. (WoW)  I also got two bottles of butane for my mini torch. A 6 oz bottle is only $2 there! Can't beat that with a stick. lol

I do enjoy going to the flea market, but it's a difficult thing for me to do. I suffer so badly from insomnia that I can cannot get up early like "normal people" to go to Saturday morning yard sales and the flea market. So it is a rare thing that I ever get to go.  If they would just change the time to 3-4am, I could be there . lol


  1. What great finds!! I love flea markets and antique shops! I hope you can do the next challenge from Patty!!

  2. I sure plan on it Annette! Time just got away from me this time. I loved the palette too. I hate that I missed this one. You did a great job with it though :)
