Sunday Market Finds

I had a very rare Thursday morning off this week so I decided to take a trip to Colombus market. Even though I got there by 7:30 I didn't last long because the heat here has been horrible. I am glad I went. I didn't hit the "motherload" but, I have to say this knitting magazine was worth the early morning trip. It is a combination of knitting and crochet. Both patterns are lovely, but some of the crochet kimono's make me want to sharped my crocheting skills. I kind of almost missed it too. I had purchased vintage fabric from this lovely woman once before, so I was focused on her fabrics. On my way out of the booth I happened to look down on the table and it was in a plastic bag. I wasn't even going to look, but....something made me open it up. The pictures are stunning! I think the seller was sorry to see it go too, but I told her I am passionate about my knitting and that it was finding a really good home. I can't wait to make something out of it! What is funny is that there is a disclaimer in the front of it that states, "Only Fleisher yarn can be used for these projects." Oh I just love a challenge! I'm figuring any worsted weight should suffice.

I also found some beautiful vintage photos and vintage brooches. Love the dress the and the shoes!!!! Her face is so beautiful too!

The brooches I am thinking I want to keep, they are my favorite color~~~purple!!! The top one says "made in Austria" on the back and is so beautiful! And the other is just so sparkly, and I love the brushed look of the gold. So, all in all, I am thinking it was a very good day at the market!
