I was really excited to hit the flea market again this weekend, but a little nervous too, after what will from now on be called The Bluebird Incident. I was worried that the crazy lady would recognize me, and rehash the whole thing, so I decided to go in disguise:
If she was there, I'm quite sure she didn't recognize me. I need to make a mental note to trim my eyebrows!
My first purchase was this pottery piece, which I'm sure is McCoy, but it has no markings on it.
It inspired the green and yellow thing going on here on this old plant stand I got last week at a garage sale.
I've seen a few Happy Birthday figurines on Ebay, so I was thrilled to find this musical Lefton one!
I was able to haggle the price of this little turquoise transistor radio down to $2. Do you haggle when you go to the flea market? I think you're expected to, so I didn't pay the asking price for any of these things!
This old quilt was only $3, and although it's not in the greatest condition...
I just love the flower baskets on it. And for $3 I can put it on the porch swing and not feel too bad if the squirrels attack it!
I live in Illinois, which is known as The Land of Lincoln. I've always wanted a Lincoln bust, and now I have one! He'll be part of my 4th of July decor, but he will also take up permanent residence somewhere in the house.
And finally, we have the cutest little thermos I've ever seen! Although I have no idea where I'll put it, it was only a quarter, and too cute to leave behind. So there you have it. No fights this time, and the worst thing I can say is that is was too hot and sticky already at 7AM. It's going to be a long summer!
