Flea Market Finds.

As I said, I scored big at the Alemany Flea Market on Sunday, so I wanted to share with y'all what less than $80 bucks buys. I know, I know, it may look like junk to some, but hey, whatever makes your heart sing, right? I had a great day of treasure hunting and the hunt was most certainly half the fun! And, yes, I bought another deer to add to my current ceramic wildlife obsession. I also picked up this pretty, zen pink box, above, from India for just a dollar.

This was the big find of the day (not that I was actually looking for her, but she seemed to just reach out and find me!). It's a vintage oil painting from the 50's of a London flower market lady. I love her bright striped blouse and funky glasses!

I picked up the daisy hook on the left, to pair with the one I already had on the right. And, I got this crazy Ice-O-Matic to partner up with my mum's old Juice-O-Matic. Fruity cocktails anyone?

These saucy little dishes were green and speckled and just called my name..."hey, Victoria, we're just $2 for two!". Then I went and got myself some prize-winning trophies and filled 'em with succulents. I'm a winner!!

And, for reasons beyond comprehension, I bought these vintage 70's retro mugs and what really is a gosh-awful squirrel dish, but again, a dollar each and I happen to like squirrely things. All in all, a good day of inexpensive entertainment with some fun, bargain flea finds.

Freaky to me but I probably would have gone for the same items.

that deer is lovely.

I go through phases with flea markets and second hand stores. sometimes I buy something only to wonder what I'll do with it. the consignment store is a good compromise, though. since the items are marked down after a certain amount of time, I wait- I'm a yankee; it's an inherent part of my personality. then, if I keep thinking of it and do go back, I'll buy it.

is your e-mail button new? that's cute.

YOU are sooo cool! I don't mean to sound like a kiss ass but you seem like that cool, quirky girl in the movies who is creative beyond compare and can turn anything she finds at a flea market into hip, vintage, retro home decor!!

Weird comment I think.....

oh fun! And now for my cheeky monkey question - did you remove from your home the same amount of items you brought in? I know you mentioned in the past that this is your rule. Do you ever bend the rules? I tried to have a rule like yours but I always seem to bring in 10 things and take away only 1 or 2 MAYBE. It's hard, I'm having a very hard time lately with editing my own space because my home looks really unorganized and piled high lately.
