Flea Market Finds

My sons and I went to the flea market this morning. It was a fun way to spend my Sunday. The boys went off on their own, and I was left to dig through the "old" stuff. I found these 2 vintage prints. They are framed, and the colors are really soft and beautiful. I think I will put them in my ETSY shop soon.
I also found this old Christmas tree topper. It was in the original box, so I was thrilled.

I think the box is as pretty as the topper!!
And last, but certainly not least this wonderful Christmas Candolier. I love these things, but they are kind of hard to find. I have spread the word to everyone I know that I would love to add them to my Christmas collection, and lucky me, I had someone who loves me pick one up for me at a yard sale. My sister, who normally doesn't frequent sales, has been keeping her eyes open for me, and she found one this weekend!! Thanks dear, I love you.
Well, I am working on some Halloween and Christmas Garlands.....I will post pictures when they are done. In the meantime, Have a lovely day.

How fun! I am in love with your tree topper (and the box). I just inherited one from my Grandma and I can hardly wait to use it. Not sure if it will go on the tree or if I will just display it, oh the possibilities...

Best wishes,

terrific finds!
I love the tree topper - I've collected way more "toppers" than I'll ever have trees, so I've taken to wiring them upside down and hanging them like over-the-top ornaments!

Hi Valarie,

I got a similar Currier and Ives print a few days ago:) I want to rint on fabric and make little doll pillows- embellished.

Have a gret day:) Lydia
