Vintage finds

Several of our local flea markets and antique malls are having sales this holiday weekend. I briefly ducked into a flea market yesterday after work and found a couple items, but I'm going back out today with a friend to do more shopping (looking forward to that!).

Here are a few items I found while browsing the aisles this week:

 I bought this set of eight vintage calendar pages from the '40s. Each month portrays a different fairy tale.  These would be so cute framed in a child's room--perfect condition, vivid colors, and only $1.75!

 I also purchased this vintage suede Ruth Saltz cougar bag for under $10. I'm gradually adding to my collection of vintage bags, especially ones with an animal motif.

 I did not buy this vintage snakeskin clutch but am thinking about going back for it. It's in really good condition and I love the black-green coloring.

This ethnic thread art is cute framed in bright red--not bad for $5!

I actually do like the upholstery on this wingback chair, especially the contrast welting, but of course it could be reupholstered as well.

 At $7,000, this ebonized cabinet goes in the category of "just dreaming," but wouldn't it be terrific for housing a large flatscreen TV?

 I do not know what this item is. The handwriting on the tag was illegible, but I love the cobalt glass. I am guessing this is for flowers? At least, I think it would look stunning filled with white flowers and sitting in the middle of a round table in a foyer.

I'm wondering whether I should return for this set of iridescent glasses and decanter. It's a different pattern from the iridescent goblets I purchased last week, but they might look good together.

A very pretty little kidney table, on sale for under $300. I love the details on this piece!

This pheasant weathervane would look terrific on a country barn or a more rustic homestead!

I'm looking forward to doing a bit more shopping today and then having the rest of the long weekend to enjoy! Hope you have a good weekend!

Invite me next time! We were at the outlet mall and Lance gave me ONE HOUR to do all my shopping. How rude!

Consider yourself most definitely invited! I'll call you next time. Also, one hour is not close to enough time, but then again, I can do a lot of damage in 15 minutes! :)
