September's De Anza Flea Market Finds

Well, it was that time of the month again! Shopping at the De Anza Flea Market that is. My mom and I had a delightful time, I must say. I just love spending my thrifting time with her. We managed to find some great vintage goodies.

So let me show and tell:

I adore figurine vases, so when I saw this priced at $4, I knew it was coming home with me. The framed needlepoints were also an instant keeper. I can't resist these types of framed decor! They are so froufrou like me. And Barbie, well,it's Barbie!

Now I got the items shown above plus a bunch of plates (not shown but some are broken & some are good) for $10. Can you beat that? And why buy broken plates? Mosaics!! I've got three mosaic projects on my to-do list so they'll definitely show up as sneak peek projects. Collecting glass/ceramic tiles and broken plates can be difficult. Breaking beautiful plates is even more difficult for me to do. BTW, I also like to collect invalid/mustache cups because they make great vases! No frogs or foam are needed to keep your flowers standing up.

Oh, and I got these too. Aren't these adorable?

Last, my favorite find for Saturday was this.

I really, really like vintage, tole chandeliers. If I could, I would replace all my home lighting with tole chandeliers. And since this is my first vintage, tole chandelier, I'm really excited about this purchase. However, what kind of lampshade does it use with a top like this?

Well, that's it for my flea market finds. I still have to show and tell my thrift store finds when I get a chance; however, I'm definitely going to post the results of my last sneak peek project this weekend. And post the next SP project right after.

Until then, Toodlepeeps.

~WOW! Lisa you found some really pretty and interesting new finds! Mustache cups? The only time I've heard of them before is on Gloria at "Happy to Be" blog. Pay her a visit if you don't know her. She's on my blogroll.

Thanks for your kind visits recently. I really appreciate it.

~Blessings my friend, ~Melisssa :)
