Our favorite flea market.

      On Monday Sept. 29 I had to have  hand surgery and so for the next few weeks my blog will be a bit different.  I am actually writing these posts prior to the surgery.  I will have my right hand in a cast for 6 weeks and really don't know how I will do without the use of my dominant hand so I am just doing this in preparation.  I will attempt to add little notes just prior to posting each  time, to keep you updated.

       Last Wednesday we made a trip to our favorite flea market in  Leesport, Pennsylvania.    As always we are able to find lots and lots of good stuff.  This visit was no exception.  I should also add that the weather was absolutely beautiful... warming up nicely into the mid 70s so we were able  enjoy a relaxing and comfortable walk about.

I saw several  tea things and the ones I bought I will show now but feature in later posts.  I also found a couple of things I didn't purchase as is often the case.

These are the pictures taken at the vendors stands.  When I feature them I will do a lot better at the photography.  This first little violet tea set also features a creamer.  I found it in another part of the table after I took this picture.  I bought the set.

 And the price was so good on these three tea cups I had to buy them too!!!!

I didn't buy this Old Country Roses tea set because the person that was selling it was off somewhere and never came back the several times I checked.  So I gave up on it.  I have an awful lot of OCR anyway.  But this child's set was pretty cute.

And finally I saw this cottage tea pot.  As I already have one didn't think I needed another!!!

Because it is fall................ there were lots of pumpkins and other decor but my favorite this time was the gourds.  There were baskets full of them.  Here are three assortments I found.

 I like to decorate with them so bought several of different sizes.

And finally I wanted to show this one vendors stand..... Not because of what she was selling but because I loved the background.  Backing up to the cornfield really seemed appropriate this time of year.

Thanks for joining me  today and I hope you will visit the other Tea Time blogs as well.

I have joined with the following Tea Cup Tuesday Tea Parties.

They may not be available every week.


Be sure to check!

Hope you will visit them too.

Bless your heart, Beth! I do hope your hand heals up quickly. I was very touched that you left a comment with your hand in a cast. Don't know how you managed it but thank you! You found some wonderful pieces on your outing. The corn field is a splendid backdrop for setting up a table of treasures to sell. Love the gourds too. Thank you for stopping by for tea and have a lovely week.

I hope your surgery went well today Beth, and that you heal quickly. Thank you for visiting me, despite the hand in a cast!
You found some nice things at the flea market, and yes, the table against the corn was really pretty. Gourds are so nice to decorate with in the fall.

Hi Beth,
I hope that you are feeling better. How challenging for you to not have use of your dominant hand. Poor you. I love all of the treasures you saw at the flea market - they are sooo much fun. Get well soon! Karen

Mom Wald said...

Good luck with that hand! I cannot wait to see more of that violet tea set.

Gentle Joy said...

I hope your surgery and recovery go wonderfully well. Your finds are lovely... what a blessing to find these treasures.... and to see others. :)

I hope your surgery went well Beth and that you heal quickly.
Looking is as much fun as buying isn't it? I left many things behind at our antique market on the weekend as I just don't have any place to put them.
Take care and just keep your comments brief with everyone, we understand.
