Christmas is coming Flea Market Finds...

Apparently this is supposed to be the busy shopping day leading up to Christmas.  Husband and I were out nice and early this morning and I did manage to squeeze in a few thrift stores along with all the other stuff on the list.  I found a gorgeous ruby red glass vase.  Nothing fancy but just the right colour for Christmas.

For a mere 50 cents, I picked up this box of oldies but goodies.  The box label says these glass balls were made in Poland.  I thought that was most interesting.

This lovely dish is marked made in Japan and was half price in the vintage section.  I was most delighted to hand over $2.50 for such a lovely dish.  The elderly male volunteer at the cash was quite enamoured with it and I thought that was sweet!

And what is a trip to a thrift store without some fabric?   I love this red vintage cotton print!  The bundle had several metres and that is a great thing!

So there you have it.  Flea market finds for December 17, 2011!  Mum is coming on Tuesday for Christmas and I am sure to have some awesome thrift store shopping with her!  Husband will get a break for a bit!

I will link up with Sophie's Flea Market Finds as soon as the link is active and with Thrift Share Monday!  Merry almost Christmas!!!
