My First Flea Market Finds - VTT
You never know what you'll see from one week to the next for VTT! Head over to Coloradolady, where Suzanne hosts this party every week!
Today I want to share with you some of the first things I ever bought at a flea market, back in the late 70s and early 80s! Everything you see in this picture was bought when I was in my late teens or early 20s. It's rather surprising to think that the things that I liked back then I still like today!
Like this lady head vase. I used to have a large collection, but I sold most of them on Ebay, keeping only the unsellable ones.
I remember buying this perfume bottle, and filling it with Jean Nate!
I remember buying this little jewelry box, Made In Japan. It still holds some of my necklaces from my teens!
I clearly remember buying this atomizer, and filling it with Avon's Hawaiian White Ginger.
Someone made a candle out of that tiny lady head vase, pouring wax into her head. Can you imagine? I remember buying that etched tray too. It's one of my favorite things, but a real bear to clean. How is it that I remember buying all of this stuff, but can't remember what happened last week?!
And I especially remember buying this tri-fold beveled mirror. It was $5, which was alot for me to spend at the time. I was with a friend who also wanted it. But I saw it first. So I got it. That's the rules when you go to the flea market. That, and no crying when someone else grabs a treasure before you do!
