We make a day trip to the annual "BIG Flea & Antique Show"
each February. It's a long day for us, a 2 hour drive each way, and then
spending hours and hours walking around the show, but always
fun and always bring home a few treasures.
Starting with the tablecloths. (Really, would you expect anything different?)
Sweet teapots is most likely a Broderie. Polka dots and teapots,
yup...had to come home with me.
Yup, I know we are so over Christmas as this point, but
couldn't resist this sweet design, even hearts!
This will be tucked away for next year.
Sweet lace and crochet trims, something else I can't seem to resist.
The round one's tied with the blue ribbon are crocheted shade pulls. Aw!
Leather postcards. I can't remember ever seeing them before, so a
few had to come home with me.
Postmarks of 1906 & 1907. I'm happy there are so many "savers"
so we get to enjoy 100+ year old treasures. They were priced $1 each.
Love me some vintage greeting cards! :)
A better look
The cards were 25 cents each, great prices for a show!
Mr. Retro and I always meander in our own direction, and he found
and surprised me with this wrought iron candleholder. Sweet!
Now I need to find those skinny candles...another hunt.
Almost forgot these aluminum ice cream/dessert bowls.
Found these last week at a local thrift shop, 50 cents apiece.
Love a good winter show while we are waiting for all the spring markets
and yard sales....love it even more when I bring home treasures!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
