flea market finds

During my travels recently I stumbed upon a flea market. Found these great glasses which I got for $2- for the set. AND this cute fan which still works for $7.


Great day for under $10. This weekend I need to find two more presentation books that are not quite as expensive as the one I bought below. If I can find white/ or gray... I'd be happier than standard black. I'll be bringing 3 to my shows and already have the one below. Any suggestions?

for some reason, antique fans are priced unreasonably high at the flea markets i've visited. so frustrating since i want one so badly

Great purchases!!! I especially love the glasses. I've never actually been to a flea market, but I feel like my pension for antiques and second-hands would fit in well there!

love the fan! I bought one that kinda looks like that on clearance at Target... not the same as vintage but still way cute.

Awesome finds! As far as the presentation book goes, have you checked out Russel + Hazel? They have the coolest binder-type stuff I know of. Here's the link: http://www.russellandhazel.com/ Hope this helps! If it doesn't for your specific purpose, surely it will for other aesthetic pursuits...

Love those glasses. What will you use them for? Also, does that fan still work??

Dallas Shaw said...

yep the fan works . And i was going to use the bottles for shampoo and bath oil, but since they are glass I think I'm going to use them for holiday parties and fill them with whiskey, vodka and bourbon.

Super treasures you found! I adore the fan. I posted on Friday some of my treasures. I can't wait to hit the big flea markets nearby in a couple of weeks. I hope you find your books. Have a golden day!

If you tire of that fan anytime soon, you can send it my way.
