If it was Wednesday, it was Leesport

We were on the road at 5:30am to head for our favorite flea market in Leesport, PA.  That may sound a bit early but it is quite a drive AND you need to get there fairly early.  Many are able to get there a lot earlier. BUT, I refuse to get up any earlier!

It was a beautiful weather day so there were many more dealers than usual AND lots more attendees as well.  So the  day was right and we found lots of goodies.  Also saw a few things to take pictures of for you.
                               One of the dealers I always visit likes to set up with themes on her tables.
                                              This time she had a section of Violet items
and another of jewelry for the 4th of July.  Those pins remind me of fireworks!
 This next lady always has fun things for the primitive style house, a lot of times she makes them from recycled items.  I will admit she gives me good ideas! This may be a manufactured lamp, I don't know.  I just like it.
  I found another great thing for my rust garden!!  It is a very rusty little windmill.  I couldn't believe my luck.  It actually moves in the wind too.  And it was really cheap which is even better!







And while I was taking pictures in my yard today I am adding one of my bird house neighborhood.  I keep finding new ones and just can't seem to stop buying them.  This isn't all either.  I have quite a few hanging here and there.




I didn't take as many pictures as I had planned to take because I didn't take my regular camera.  These were with my phone.  It doesn't do as well.    But you can get the idea of the kind of things I look for.

No tea cups this week either.  I was very disappointed!  Maybe I will find a couple from my shop to show you on the next Teacup Tuesday.

Final Teacup Tuesday in June

Another month ending, and actually 1/2 of a year nearly gone.  Wow, time is moving fast!

This week I am showing you two more cup and saucer sets I saw last week at the Black Diamond Antique shop in Frackville, PA.
The two sets today have blue flowers but very different designs.

The first set is a little hand painted one I think I may have shown before, or one very similar.  I had one in my shop but sold it awhile ago.  It is made by Melba Bone China.
I think it is so sweet.  The little blue handpainted blue flowers really make it special.


The first of the pictures is of the cup and saucer.  This next one is of the little consume cup and saucer.  If you notice, the saucer is square on this one, round on the other.
 And here is the Mark.  If you notice, there is no pattern name listed.  The numbers no doubt represent the artist who did the painting.

 This next set is from Rosina Queens China.  I don't know why it has the two different names.  The mark shows that it is Queens china from Rosina China Co.  I thought it was a very pretty.
This set is nice because it has the dessert plate.



Although it is a bit too shiny to read easily it does say that the pattern is Wild Flowers.  I think there may be other patterns in this style.  Don't know for sure.


I hope we can get to my favorite flea market this Wednesday and if so I hope to find some more cup and saucers to photograph.  Maybe I can find some other interesting stuff too.
So be sure to check back next Tuesday.

Meanwhile Thanks for visiting my site today.......
