Antique Flea Market Finds

Over the weekend Charlie and I went to an Antique Flea Market in Fredericksburg Virginia.  They were advertizing 400 vendor booths,  but I don’t really believe there was that many.  I surprised myself and only came home with a few things.  

003

I finally found a child’s wooden shoe.   I paid $3.00 for it.    I have been looking for one for a while now.   

005

I found some wooden letterpress letters.  I bought the letters “Y'” for my daughter-in-law and of course the letters “F” are for me.  

006

An old white porcelain door knob with the hardware attached and a pair of skeleton keys also found their way home with me.  

007

I found a pair of old spindles.  I love the color. 

004

A copper dish. 

013

And I’m not exactly sure what these are; vases or goblets but there was a set of 12 at .50 cents a piece so I bought all 12 of them.  My plans are to use them in the dining room.  

008

My only regret after I got home was not purchasing some old vintage Valentines cards.  There was a vendor that had tons of them.  Charlie and I looked at them and we both reminisced about our childhood and how much we loved giving and receiving Valentine’s Day cards at school.  The funny thing about it, the vendor had cards there that I remember giving and receiving.  Oh well, maybe next time. 

Thanks for stopping by and may your day be filled with lots of sunshine and all the happiness it can hold.

Gail

  8. What a total shock to click on your link from Junkin' Finds and see Fredericksburg, Virginia, in your first sentence!! I'm in Fredericksburg, too! Howdy, Neighbor. The Fredericksburg Big Flea has never been all that great ... but you found some really good stuff. Do you go to the DC Flea, too.
