It's time for another round of monthly flea market finds! I am quite thrilled with my finds this month. There aren't many of them, but they are top notch.
Hope joined me for the market today, which surprised me. I was under the impression that she thought that any vintage hunting was "sooo BORING", but it turns out that flea markets are OK with her. She always manages to find some kind of treasure, whether it is a bracelet, a book or a toy. She brought her own money and was very thoughtful about how she spent it. She got two horse figurines (she is a horse nut) and a plastic lion mug that I must share with you:
Do you spy the new additions to my British royalty collection? Let's get a closer look:
I really love both of them because they are a little different from the coronation souvenirs that I usually see. But, truth be told, I'll buy just about any coronation memorabilia if I don't already have it and it's the right price. I think that I was English in a former life.
I am head over heels in love with this 1950s tablecloth. Look at those roses! I sincerely don't think that I've ever seen a vintage tablecloth as pretty as this one. The dealer wasn't in the booth when I found it, so I had to wait around until he returned. Hope was getting pretty impatient, but I couldn't leave without it!
So, not a big haul (I also found a piece of ironstone that will eventually make it to Etsy), but I'm in love with every bit of it. Well, maybe not the lion mug ;)
