Flea Market Finds

I am constantly seeking out our local thrift shops and church flea markets for some deals on vintage items.  I usually am always able to scoop up some great finds.  You would be surprised that someone’s junk can be someone else’s treasure.  From experience, I know that many elderly people are often cleaning out their closets or their entire houses in order to downsize.  In fact, that is exactly what my parents have been doing this winter to prepare for their yard sale in the spring.  Their reasoning is that they don’t need so much stuff anymore and that someone else can use it.  Of course, their treasures have to pass through me before it makes it to the yard sale box.  Check out what I have recently acquired at a local church flea market at Our Lady of Sorrows in Linwood, NJ.

This beaded purse was a steal at $10.  I talked to the dealer and she said that she now went around to different flea markets selling items as a result of cleaning out her mother's house after she had passed away.

This grated cheese man matches a utensil holder I found last year. I got him for $12. This is a hard piece to acquire.

I got this children’s play set for $15. This is only a part of a complete set but it was well worth it as it made a great addition to the decor above my kitchen cabinets.
