Flea Market finds ... three jaunts, three jackpots ...





First from a quick pop in a nearby Sallies while my friend went to the bank ...
My heart skipped a beat when I saw this gorgeous white waffle print with a crochet edge...
I almost fainted when I saw the crochet edge was on three sides of what looks like a daybed cover ...
with $4.00 on the price tag.
Next was in a basket near the door of the local Vinnies...
35 skeins of DMC Cotton Tapisserie thread ...
Made in France ...
 for $10.
Yesterday at the local market ...
Ruler $4.
Measuring 20 x 12.5 cms ...
a small vintage, timber box with a $20 price tag ...
I was flumoxxed ...
yep you've heard it all before!!!
There's a small sliding cover on each side ...
Look what was under the first slide ...
4 small secret drawers and a longer one with a hole to lift it off ...
I knew there was something inside ...
Look what was inside the second sliding door ...
GADZOOKS ...
Old cash tin cash register numbers etc 
and 
mother of pearl buttons.
Blessed!

OH MY LORDY...what a find. When I got to the last photo I think I stopped breathing. HOW FANTASTIC to have stumbled across those letters and buttons inside. You must be so pleased.

Wow.. you sure do find some interesting things. I would absolutely love to one day go trawling through antique shops and op shops. There are some great ones in Trentham and other little country towns.

Thank you so much for the lovely comments on my blog (especially about the VABC) xx
