Saturday Flea Market Finds... and it's December!

Husband and I had a list a mile long today but we still found time to pop into a couple of thrift stores.  Or at least I did!  I found this adorable Christmas bucket at one shop and the vintage Christmas tablecloth at another.  

I found the depression-like glass bowls and a lovely green glass candlestick.  These were CHEAP at 50 cents each.

 Some crafty bibs and bobs for 50 cents a pop.  The knitting lock rings were marked $6.95 in their unopened package!  Scoop or what?

And some great vintage sheets!  I might need to go into business at this rate.  I keep finding really great sheets and cannot seem to pass them up!

Our other finds of the day were not really finds but we did have to pick up our 2 wee hens from the farm that was growing them for us.  They are quite lovely Gold-Laced Wyandottes.  We are building our flock with some heritage varieties.  We found a farm that will raise the day olds to 12 weeks for us.  This is quite a help when your flock of chickies is mixed ages.

We also picked up our Christmas tree and Husband is putting up the lights as we speak.  We are surrounded by Christmas tree farms all around.  We simply hopped in the van, drove around the corner, handed over $20 and brought home a lovely tree.  So easy!

Have a wonderful rest of your day and I will be linking up with Sophie's Flea Market Finds when the link is up later this evening!


  1. Oh my goodness - love those pink bowls and the green candle stick and MORE vintage sheets! Your town must all have new sheets all the time in order for their to be such a good supply! I had never really thought about using vintage sheets before reading your blog and a few others, now I am planning a quilt!

  2. A definite scoop on the knitting markers. I bought them at full price. :(

  3. Great finds Cathy. Craft supplies are also such bargains, and love the vintage sheets. x
