Flea Market finds....

I love Sundays, especially when I get the chance to go Flea Marketing! I got there by 8 a.m. and out by 9:45 because it was already too hot! I was looking for vintage frames(no luck), but found an amazing portrait on canvas. I decided at the time that since I was only going to buy what I came looking for~ frames, vintage cards & misc. ephemera, that I wouldn't buy it. After I got home I kept thinking about how I wish I had bought it, not that I have any wall space left for it anyways.
It reminded me of the time when I was at a flea market( a really good one, that only comes around once a month) and I had found a beautiful(but very expensive) vintage Eiderdown. I figured that when it was time to leave and I still wanted to buy it... and if it was even still there, then I would. Well, I was also very pregnant at the time and thought I was having contractions, so I left the flea market, went to the hospital and made sure I wasn't in labor ~ then went back and bought the eiderdown!



So this afternoon after thinking about how badly I still wanted the portrait, I headed back to the flea market.... and luckily she was still there! Yeah :)
And yes, I know that a pyrex dish, ice tray and little plastic people weren't on my list either... but I really needed them too.

What a funny story! I try to only let myself go to the market every other weekend. I also tend to be a little lazy now that I have to go early because I know work on sundays. I use to stroll in around 11am and chat with all my favorite venders. I know most of them by name :) Now they get worried and ask were I've been! Lovely finds- I spy a girl in a bag... is she bride! She seems very sweet! And the portrait is so lovely!

I believe the girl in the bag is supposed to be snow white... or maybe another character??? But I do have little plastic brides too.
For some reason I've ended up with a really LARGE collection of little brides, grooms & brides maids~ I'll have to post a picture of them sometime..... I really do have a lot!! I guess I have a thing for little plastic people :)

Of course you needed that awesome Pyrex dish - who wouldn't. If only to hold the little men. :)

Nice blog, found you on Etsy through the BlogRoll thread. :)

Funky portraits and the seven dwarfs never make our list of the things we need! I am glad you gave a home to the fabulous things that everyone else passes by.
