Flea Market Finds of late

Lots of summery dresses...
I loved this bamboo flower pot

I have been looking for old fashioned Christmas bulbs and
have found several boxes. The Pearlized ones have lace and
glitter and the more colorful set are clear/colored.
I've always wanted a luggage
rack/holder and this one was $2. With some paint and prettier
straps it will be ready for the next time company comes to stay!

I also got a new/old bike. She's buried in the garage right now, but
as soon as the weather turns warm again, I'll be shining her up to get ready to
pedal around town in vintage style!

Then there's the tea pot Just white, but not too big and not too small and the French Press Coffee Pot (can you have too many of these?) It's been alot of fun. Can't wait to go again!!
Then there's the wonderful old statue of St. Joseph. I love him too. He's is standing
by a collection of photos of my children. I thought that was an appropriate
place for him.

What wonderful finds! The luggage rack is just great! I can easily see it a light rustic green or white whith sanded edges. :) WONDERFUL!!!

Great shopping!

I hope you'll show photos of your stairs after wallpapering them, as you mentioned on my blog. Did you get vintage wallpaper too?

I wanted to run over and say thanks for stopping by! I love your blog and thanks for reminding me I have to wish everyone a happy March 17th...another junkhunter, I love it. I love going to yard sales and estates sales more than the flea market though, since our flea market vendors have taken to selling new crap from China (old junk beats new crap from china everyday of the week) I especially love old plates even with the crazing in the porcelain. I'll be back in, again thanks for coming over

I, too, have been wanting a luggage rack! I can never find one, though. I think it'd be sooooo handy in the guest room. Lucky, lucky you!
Great finds on the other stuff, too. I'm forever bringing home more Christmas stuff - all throughout the year. (It's an addiction, I'm afraid. ha)

Wished I knew you wanted old Christmas balls. I "trashed" many and freecycled others. Like the Monet!
