Fleamarket Finds

Whoops, I have been (accidentally) silent again. Let me explain, we have been away for a few days in Lincolnshire, and the hotels we stayed professed to have wifi for all but it didn't really work out like that. I'll be posting a little more about our trip in due time but until then...

I have been attempting to curb my vintage buying instincts, (yadda yadda), but we all know I can't so I should really stop repeating myself. Anyway, over the last month, I have been buying a few things, and now I'm going to show them to you (at last).

Vintage tile from here - pretty, huh?

Salad serving set - for the shop.

Charming Moulin Rouge programme. Crying out to be framed.

A plethora of 1950s spotty drinking cups.

A pumpkin adorned tin. The pumpkin and squash season is almost upon us. I can't wait.

Beautiful teal blue enamel cooking pot. I already have this in orange. But, so what, eh?

A pair of round table-cloths. Shop bound.

There's more (of course) but not tonight, too too tired. But I will be getting back to my usual blogging ways this week, I hope you're all still there...!

that blue cooking pot is gorgeous, is it talaware? I have a three tiered cake tin with pattrns similar to that, I keep my sewing kits in it.

I have a tray to match the pumpkin tin. I love it and once upon a time decorated my kitchen to match the colours. Grey and orange. That was a billion years ago so am looking for more kitchen inspiration right now. I love to find it in old things like this.
