Thursdays are the big day at one of the local markets. I always work a long day, so when an opportunity presents itself to get a Thursday off...I leap at the chance! This sterling pendant was the buy of the day! The seller had it marked super cheap and it is a fabulous piece! The same seller had these beauties! The amber one is a button that Donna spotted! And the other I thought would be pretty with a shawl. Fabulous day at the market with my lovely friend Donna . It was chilly but we had a blast, and met some great characters~ part of the fun at the market is the people you meet! Some great vintage fabric, now that I am sewing I keep an eye out for it! This great vintage toast holder that is now a home for all my loose desk papers. Just wanted to share some of the fab finds.

Just a quick post today to share a flea market find. I found this dress on an early morning trip to the market. I had originally spotted it for fabric. It sat in a bag for about 6 months until I took it to be dry cleaned. When I brought it home I really looked at it...And discovered it was in much better shape than I thought, and it appeared to be closer to my size than I would have guessed. Actually it needs to be taken in. I also need to replace the buttons and repair the smallest tear by one of the button holes. But I love it! I think it looks fab with my capelet that I wore alot last spring too! Another successful flea market find, that cost me about $10.00.
