Flea Market Finds

Tonight, on my way home from work, I was able to stop in at the flea market since hubby was watching the kids... (YAY!). I am so excited to show you what I found.... firstly, this incredible book....
It weighs a ton.... cannot wait for a cold wintery night to dive into it..... then these.....
Two of my favs... forget me nots and babies..... You can't really tell by the photo but her hat has these little raised polka dots.... it is SO cute. Once of the sweetest post cards I have come across... and posted in 1904~ This old shorthand book.... falling apart, but I love the cover and the insides are great for artwork... all those old shorthand marks!
And finally, a vintage photo of three sisters....
Do you think they are triplets? Hubby thinks the one on the left of the screen and the one standing are twins but I think they all look identical. Love them. Love flea markets. Love free time!! Have a great Labour Day Weekend!!

Great finds Jenn! I'm dying to know what the inside of the needlecraft book is like.

I love Flea Markets. What great finds. I love old books and have an obsession for them.. I guess it could be worse! We don't have many Flea Markets close to me but, when I know of one and I get the chance, I will travel just to get there... I love old photo cards.. I have a big box of them and haven't done anything with them.. but, I will.... Thanks for sharing...

OOOOh you had fun! I have been so busy with the beginning of school stuff and my sister's wedding that I have not had any time for fleas or thrift shops! I am going through withdraws. Just have to get through this weekend (wedding)! Wonderful finds!
