It was an absolutely gorgeous day! Rain threatened, but never materialized. Instead the sky was deep blue with puffy white clouds and temps in the 60s -- perfect weather for a flea market. It was very crowded, too (I think everyone wanted to get in on the last one of the year).
|I'm most excited about this child-sized card table and chairs|
|Lots of great kitchen stuff, including a McCoy individual teapot and a pair of Holt Howard cats|
|The muffin pan in the front is all Statues of Liberty and the ones at the back are madeleines and leaves -- fairly unusual|
|A little Christmas stuff, including a 1960s hanging (from a store?) and a BIG German tin from Nuremburg|
|The Little Golden Books, vintage souvenir pennants and skeleton keys were all great buys!|
|I really like these Scottish-theme dishtowels!|
|This beaded clutch purse is really cute|
I stayed calm, but I was really panicked! I did some serious praying, even though I felt guilty for bothering the Lord about my glasses. One of the vendors volunteered that she'd pray for me to find them (along with asking other people if they'd seen them) -- she was really helpful. Happily, I found them at one of the places with a big tent -- the vendor had put them aside for me. After that, though, we were near the beginning and I'd just lost the thrill of the hunt. We decided to be thankful for what we had and head on home. So, it was a fun day, but a short one.
I spent most of this afternoon taking pictures for Etsy and getting the overflow of stuff organized -- two things I'd gotten way behind on. I've been thinking about getting another shelving unit or store stuff. When I told Mr. KV this, he pointed out (very sweetly, I must admit) that our basement is starting to look like an episode of 'Hoarders' and that it might be time to lay off buying for a while. Hmm , , , Maybe so. But there's just so much great stuff out there and Bargain Hunter has been scoping out auctions for us to go to . . .
