My Dream Flea Market Day...

Today I went on a fabulous treasure hunt... I found sooo many beautiful things... gorgeous Nippon cups and saucers, Lefton bluebirds sugar and creamer... complete set of Trixie Belden books... Victoria magazines (original Victorias)... an old box camera, porcelain elves... a silverplated creamer and sugar set... sooo much more... and the best part... I didn't spend a penny!... you see, my treasure hunt was here in my own home... I have been keeping a list of things I wanted to find, things that I packed away when we moved not quite a year ago and today I decided to host my own "flea market''... you know, the kind you dream of going to, where there are goodies galore and you are the only one there... so off to the basement I went, sorting through boxes and boxes I had packed away... uncovering secret hidden treasures... I am sooo tired tonight, so I decided to photograph everything tomorrow... right now... I will savor a cup of Lady Grey tea and an English biscuit... won't you join me... back real soon to share my "finds" from my own "invitation only" flea market... xoxo

Oh...I love this! The best kind of shopping can be found in one's own home! I did a TINY bit of junking today. Found a sweet oval mirror from the 1920's for $20 and tiny set of salt and pepper shakers (nothing fancy but I loved them!) and a neat set of shutters for my little mall space. Most of the estate sales were SAD! Overpriced and stripped bare before they began.

Love to you JulieMarie...I love to visit!

Bonjour Julie Marie,
I can't wait to see all your beautiful treasures. Oh and how I dream of that flea market, where you're the only there and get first pick at all the wonderful treasures...Sigh! Anyway, I'm a bit tired tonight too...been working hard out in the "garden" and I would love to join you for a cup of tea and English biscuit. Yummy. Have a wonderful weekend my friend.

Hugs and Kisses,

So many beautiful treasures! What a great flea market day you had and so perfect, too. You didn't have to travel far, everything you found you love and you sure can't beat the prices. I 'd love to see all your goodies.

Oh my -- the choicest items - great selection - perfect colors - NO PARKING issues or crabby shoppers. What a FANTASTIC at-home flea market. Looking forward to seeing your treasures. Should I bring the shortbread biscuits?
