finds from the flea...

Hello!
Jim was on vacation last week so I took a little blog break myself.  We went to a flea market in Sandwich on Cape Cod last Wednesday.
Would you like to see some of my finds from the flea?
I knew you would...


Wouldn't this old can look great on a farmer's porch or in a garden?!

Do you love old silver pieces?  How about this one ~ from Texas...

This will be perfect for a display I am working on for the fall in my booth.
This pretty serving piece...


...was a freebie!
The vendor said he liked my smile ;)!

You know I love sweet vintage books...
This old beauty was only one dollar...

It is a keeper. 
I might just keep this one too...
And this one...
They were only five bucks a piece!
I mean just look at the beautifully aged pages...
Some of the song titles made me giggle.
I figured out...
Because she said...
Hee Hee!!

I brought a few dolls home too...


I am sharing with Linda at Coastal Charm for Nifty Thrifty Tuesday.  I have missed joining in on all the fun over there!

Thank you for stopping by today ~ come back for a visit on Wednesday to see what else I found at the flea!!

Hi Sandi,
I love all of the treasures that you found. It would be hard for me to give them up, but I know it's a must when you have a store or space.
Hope your well and have a lovely week sweet friend.
Sincerely,

Hello Sandi

No matter how much I smile, I have never charmed any free silverware from a vendor. The cake spade will look wonderful when it's shined-up.

Laughing out loud at the song titles! You are one lucky girl to find all those great treasures. I like the books best, but then I'm a book-y kind of girl!

Ha-ha! I'll be no submissive wife. Love that! I thought everyone back then thought that's what they had to be ??? The Family Book of Glee. Pretty funny!

I love red and silver. Great finds! And it is obvious that if you smile, the world smiles with you! How sweet to get a freebie just for spreading a bit of sunshine with a smile.

Have a great day. Tammy

Susan said...

Those song titles made me chuckle, too. Ahhh...good old days.
Looking forward to seeing your other finds,
Susan
