Flea Market Finds

After getting an email from somebody I don't know, about a Retro Fair on today -
I went to have a nosey. (thank you!)

There were items from the 1950's through to the late 70's. Not alot of fabrics - but I managed to get a few teatowels and tablecloths.

Buttons and vintage earrings.

I thought this button was appropriate considering what my partner does for a living! (telecommunications)
Its cleaned up well with some bi carb, this was the best photo I could get of it!

Vintage clip ons.

This fabric was actually on the ladies table as a cover. So she had to take everything off the table to sell it to me! The flowers are quite big, just what I was after.

And another tea towel.
There were all sorts of amazing vintage items there - a giant vintage tiki, eiderdowns, 70's sunglasses,  lots of beautiful jewellery, huge 1960's racy calenders, Crown Lynn crockery ...etc.  Also some art deco plant pot stands that I would have loved to be able to afford for displaying items!
 Oh well, one day.x

(There's more finds over at Sophie's )

EEEEEK! That floral tablecloth is amazing. That strange email was obviously 'meant to be' today.

Those fabrics are wonderful!

I'd love a cryptic email! Someone obviouslu knows your taste and is keeping an eye out for you!

But strange ...

All great finds, but those vintage clip-ons have my utter devotion :) I finished clearing out my craft room today (can't actually remember when I started this job actually!).. Anyway, I have 3 huge bin liners full of fabric going to the charity bin. Thanks to you, Jennie, I have every faith they'll end up in a good home and used to a much better purpose than they were here :) Kx
