Flea Market Finds ... OooWaaa ... a splurge by any other name = bliss ...

This had my name on it with a special price too ...
despite a missing drawer ...
it was mine for $25 ...
especially happy ...
look at the insides of the drawers ...
 why I lusted for this has me flummoxed ...
look at the inside, do you blame me for $25?
it will be over my arm next time you see me ...
These darlings were in tins ... minus tins = $10 ...
Do you get my quandry?
But yikes I was so darn happy!!!
The good sort lashed out on a Tornado Potato ...
the treats were a plenty
"The Value in a Suit Depends Upon"
so hard to pass on this gorgeous ode treasure ...
Jen looked like she'd stepped out of "Little House on the Prairie"  ...
old hessian, more wooden boxes, a beautiful sconce, even a Provence sign ...
Kitsch Aussie cushions, goodies galore, each week the market grows and grows ... not unlike my haul!
                    Now if the girls with market stalls hadn't gotten to know me ...
    how much easier it would be ...
      but would I prefer that?

      How about a peek at your flea market finds please?

WOW! Where was this market? I don't think I've ever been to a flea market around here that looked that good. I'm passing out over the cupboard price, and the buttons!! And your friend Jen is a style queen.
