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!
