went to the flea.....

A friend of mine keeps telling me I need to go visit a little flea market which is held at my daughters high school. Well...she is right! It is a very small one with junk and swap meet stuff here and there but mainly it was like a parking lot filled with pretty good garage sales. She thought I could find stuff for my kits and for arting..she was again right!
Here are my finds:
Some silk rannaculas- those are just for the house, very bright and cheery. A pedestal plate-$2 a bunch of new but vintage millinery roses, 2 crepe paper flowers and a baggie of buttons....

Then there was this book.... I was walking around with it poking out of the bag a little and this guy came up to me, stopped me and asked me to see the book. I showed it to him....he was dissappointed, he said "OH, I saw it said breast on it and just had to know what kinda book it was!" I laughed, told him was a dirty old man and quickly made sure my book was no longer visible...Hmmph!!!

Then the last set of treasures I got was 3 porcelain doll sets...they are each a character from Little Women..they come with the bisque head, arms and legs, muslin for the body and a pattern for the body and dress.... what a find and they are all so pretty. I will be adding these to my etsy tonite.


Well, I am off to clean some more and then take my mom and her friend out to dinner! Happy Saturday! karen...
