Sunday's Flea Market Finds.

As I promised in my Sunday post, I am sharing this weekend's Alameda Flea Market Finds. I was only on the lookout for small items this time around and I ended up with quite an eclectic bunch.

From the infamous Seattle George's booth with tons of fun flashcards, postcards, umbrellas and many other funky things, I picked up a couple of his handmade paint-by-number postcards, and some little typewriter letters, including one that says "wag". Oh, and a Scrabble 'V' for me. All for about $14, including the pretty tray below.

I bought this fun little white birdcage and some fragile black coral from a lovely booth with great bargains. Both were half off, so I got both for about $12.

I love the Fall colors and ornate design on this little laminated tray. Don't really need another tray, but hey, it was $3. As always, thanks, Seattle George!

This wire basket will hold my never ending magazine piles. Just $6. To be honest, I'm not quite sure what I'm even going to do with these galvanized metal bird feeders, but for a $1 a piece, I'll find some use for them. Maybe plant some succulents, or keep kitchen utensils or matchbooks in them. Sometimes you just gotta take a chance!
