2 Bags Full.
As I mentioned yesterday in my blog, I was going to attend a local flea market. It was sponsored by our local fire department and they hold several during the winter months. Most of the vendors are regulars but some folks just use it like a yard sale. You won't usually find high level antiques and collectibles but it pretty much runs the gamut
The thing about flea markets is you NEVER know what you are going to find. The first table inside the door sold Polish Potato bread!!!!! Yummy! Behind him were a couple of tables of pies, breads and such along with jelly and jam. (I didn't take a picture of that table.)
Here is a picture of a typical table of what I call "flea market miscellaneous.
If you are a collector there are usually opportunities at these sales.
Here are some examples of the offerings.
And this person offered a scrapbook filled with vintage post cards.
Are you a doll collector? There are usually some to be had.
And how about something a bit unusual.... a clothespin holder.
These were quite popular in the 30s, 40s and 50s.
I bought this pile of kitchen towels and such from one of the vendors to sell in my shop. I think most are from the 40s because they were certainly typical items from that time period.
It is always fun to look for things you have never seen before. Do you have a favorite thing to look for at a flea market?
Come back again on Tuesday for Tea Cup Tuesday. I have already started planning what I will be showing.
