Flea market finds

Yesterday I went to my favorite once-a-month antique flea market. I didn't find as many treasures as I would have liked, and it was SO gloomy out, but it was a fun day. I got this lovely vintage feedsack. Expect some snap pouches with this great print shortly!

I collect vintage glassware, so I was more than thrilled to come across a set of seven of these glasses, and for less than a dollar each! Won't they be perfect for iced tea?

I also found this great postcard that will work wonderfully for a postcard sentiment bracelet:

Oh, and I can't forget the 2 lb. bag of really good cherries I bought there, as well. Mmmmm!

  6. That fabric....
    Cannot wait until you have pouches with that!
    My husband is going to kill me, for we
    are on "no excessive shopping" budget.
    I will just have to intercept the mail. hahaha.

  8. You have totally inspired me!! Not sure if it's vintage or not, but I found this TERRIFIC red leather pencil skirt at the thrift store for $4!!!!!! It's a little snug, but is convincing me to work-out so I can wear it!!!

  11. Hi Amy,

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. I love flea markets too. I haven't had time to go this summer. Hope to get to Kane County again some time. So much awesome stuff. I'm hoping to start buying some older furniture to fix up for my house.

    I just started with the craft shows and I am a bit nervous about the 2 day ones I have coming up....don't know what to expect. The outdoor ones were fun though. Hopefully these will be too.

    Thanks again for coming by!
