The day of the Giant Flea (see here or here) came around again on Sunday, I met up with Katie and her pal Sasha and we meticulously stalked our prey (several times over). I already showed you the clothes I found but I also found some other things. Despite the cold, the drizzle and the covering over/packing up of stalls, we all came away with wonderful things.
The next one falls on the weekend of my long anticipated screen-printing course. The stars most certainly are not in alignment, I am seriously torn, I mean, how will I concentrate knowing it's the Giant Flea?
So, what did I get?
A locket and Puffin Club membership badge.
A gilt-y swallow brooch with a tiny green jewelled eye.
Eggcup twins. They each have a unique smile though.
A wind-up dancing doll. They were made for the 1980 Moscow Olympics apparently. Katie got one last time and I was so envious (in a nice way).
Three friendly fellows, they'd be only too pleased to help you with your drink! I saw one of these at a flea market earlier in the summer, and they were so expensive so I was extra specially pleased to spot this set at a most reasonable price.
A 1950s wooden flour store. And inside?
Two more! For sugar and coffee! Neat, huh?
This divided opinion, I just love the font and I think it's quite funny. I also think it's going to look great on the (new look) mantelpiece, with more graphics and typographic paraphernalia. What do you think?
A darling sewing box, to maybe, finally, keep all my sewing bits in one place. Hmm.
And a Victory Play and Learn puzzle tray. Sweet, no?
Some of these things will end up in the shop, maybe this week if I can find some time. Anything take your fancy?
