Rainy Flea Market Finds!

It rained today.  I mean really rained.  So much rain that I had to take pictures inside.  I have not had to do that for a long time!  Hit a couple of thrift stores today.  First up are all the little toys and the basket.  I needed to replenish my little boy prize/encouragement supply for my office.  I found all these little cars and then picked through all the bags of small toys to find a good assortment that would appeal to busy little boys.  The whole shebang with the basket cost me about $3.  Less than at the dollar store!  And all these little treasures are just waiting to be re-loved.

Just a few vintage sheets including a plain white one in excellent shape and of course, the pretty pink floral!

Christmas stationary anyone?

Mum says I have a knack for picking up Johnson Brothers china.  I have Johnson Brothers radar I think.  2 luncheon plates in excellent shape for 50 cents each.  That's cheap!

And a lovely platter, old, no chips and big!  This one is for Daughter who loves to cook a turkey dinner and needs to have a platter!

So that is what I found this week.  Nothing mind blowing but fun all the same.  I will be linking up with Sophie's Flea Market Finds and Apron Thrift  Girl's Thrift Share Monday.  Have a lovely weekend and check out all the other finds.  I am spending the weekend at the sewing machine.. .the perfect way to spend a rainy weekend!
