I had a rather bountiful couple of trips to the flea market this past weekend. By the way, if any of you live in Ohio, it's worth a trip to this particular market. I'm spoiled because it's just minutes from where I grew up and I guess I take it for granted. It's called the Hartville Flea Market in Hartville, Ohio. I am never disappointed in the selection of vintage goods. Don't these creamy things looks beautiful all scattered willy nilly? Love that look. I could just scatter things around the house on tables this way and be happy. As long as they are pretty things.
Found this old photograph album that is just filled with tintype photos and also cabinet cards. A treasure for sure.
Some old greeting cards and notions below. I love the graphics on old greeting cards and plan to have the baby's birth announcements done with a similar vintage feel. I made Mario's birth announcements myself, but I'll definitely be ordering them this time around.
Then, there's this big ole' tray of old costume jewelry. I use lots of these pieces in my creations and am fond of the fact that they are pretty much one of a kind pieces. Unique and special.
These ballet slippers are my favorite purchase. Love them. I talked with the vendor a while and he told me that they belonged to an old girlfriend who was a ballerina with the Cleveland Ballet in the 1940's and 50's.
Well, that's it for now. Enjoy your weekend! xo~a
