Flea Market Finds = BONANZA!

I flipped when I saw this little drawer ...
was it the missing drawer to the chest I here bought in August?
it was ... Yayyyy ... BONANZA!
Jen was looking every bit 'li'l house on the prairie' ...
I resisted this gem ... 9 hatboxes are enough I thought ...
I was wrong ...
so wishing I'd not been so restrained ...
the most vintage 'Hecla Foot Warmer' ~ condition immaculate ...
much Oooo-ing and Ahhh-ing in awe of this relic ...
cushions galore ...
bargains galore too ...
 loving timber treasures ...
$10 got me this gorgeous case/folder ...
catches work, hidden compartment included ...
my finds =
the beautiful case / folder covered in pretty oriental fabric ... 
2 wonderful 'sticks of inches' = $8.00 each ...
German frau on stick = $8.00
German made travel clock with mother of pearl face = $6.00 ...
plus a bakelite handle and the drawer for the chest = FREE!
BONANZA day for me ...
blessed again ♥

Oh I would have gone nuts at that place! Was it a market? or a combined garage sale? Wonderful finds...

Wow, I can't believe you actually found the missing drawer. Amazing!

That case is simply gorgeous. Maybe the hat box will be there next time. The missing drawer is testament to 'anything is possible'? Where is this wonderful market?

Can't believe you found the lost drawer to the chest! You know the universe is looking after you when that sort of thing happens.

I really must question your sanity on the hat box though- my philosophy on boxes, bins, tins and containers is- never enough!! They're storage, and therefore functional, useful and necessary. :D

Oh wow to find your missing draw.
Looks like a fabulous place, I would have never been able to restrain myself!

Is there something wrong with me that I am in love with the footwarmer? I just love the idea of it and the life it has had. I would've ooh and ahh a lot too :)
