Oh, did I find some nifty things this past weekend at my favorite flea market. I always look for broken jewelry (as well as unbroken!) and lo and behold, I found two pieces of tiaras!
I’m not sure why anyone would cut the sides off, but that didn’t really matter as the best parts were still there. I am quite delighted with this find!
For some time, I’ve wanted a clear cake plate and just my luck, I found a beautiful vintage one at my first stop. I got it for a steal, as I learned when I saw others that weren’t even vintage selling for much more.
How heavenly is this pearly little clock! The vendor gave it to me for free, yes, FREE! He said he wasn’t sure it it even worked (does that even matter?!) and I had purchased some other items from him just prior. This won’t be the first clock I’ve purchased that doesn’t work; really, I get this for their decor.
Just odds and ends of jewelry pieces I couldn’t resist.
Two beautiful necklaces not for the mannequin, but for me.
And two yummy bracelets… One skinny older one; and another new decorative one that I got at the Macy’s table. Yes, there is a vendor that sells only Macy’s jewelry that is past season and it’s all just a $1 or more but always a super deal.
And pearls, too! Two old necklaces of which one I can still wear and the other goes into my vintage pearl collection.
So I mentioned I look for broken jewelry; I have no idea what these two little pieces were, but they just had to come home with me.
Oh, Miss Gracie!
As you may know, Miss Gracie insists on helping with every photo shoot. However, this time we got into a little tug of war with the objects!
Party time! And am I not a princess?
Yes, I am! It’s a package of cupcake liners and 24 princess toppers to place on each cupcake. Guess I’ll have to have a princess party.
A couple of yellow flowers and two glass dishes handy for jewels or cashews!
Some pretty handkerchiefs called to me with dainty flowers sewn into each one.
Sis found some things, too. A glass chicken (rooster?) and bunny called her name. I know there must be a name for this type of item, but I’m not familiar with it. Do you know?
Oh, and I did get a bag full of linens which I’d love to show you. Unfortunately, Miss Gracie had other plans.
Another favorite find (how many favorites can a person have?) is this little hat covered all over with flowers.
This is the front but I really like the back of it too as it has light pink flowers in front yet brighter flowers in back.
It truly is the sweetest hat, but not to be worn by me.
No, you have to be a doll or Mr. Bear to wear this hat I think. It is a small hat but a beauty nonetheless.
Being that it was a holiday weekend, there weren’t as many vendors but it still took a good three hours to see all the booths. As I finished, it was starting to get pretty warm outside so we stopped down the street at Whole Foods Market for a yummy lunch. Another successful day at the flea market!
