Flea Market Finds

Saturday I ended up at the Flea Market which sells an abundance of antiques. I usually don't hit the stalls outside.....but I was glad I did. Found a great bargain, 5 for $1

All these great cards! I think I will scan them and make some cards out of them. I love the sayings on them

This one had a special surprise inside!


And if that was not good enough, look what else was 5 for $1.
Still in the package place cards





So I spent total of 3 dollars
I love "smalls"

I really enjoy reading the older cards. I love cards of any kind tho. I send so many I feel I should be getting a dividend check from Hallmark.

These are all wonderful! I especially love the bluebird shower card. :-)

"thank you for the birthday gift" lol. Hard to imagine the back and forth card giving days anymore! You are lucky if you get a real birthday card these days, with all the modern birthday wish methods (email, ecard, facebook...) who gets a card?...let alone a thank you for your gift card!!!!!

So gorgeous! Real cards are so rare and while I love the snarkiness of most of them, these would be so precious to receice. Wonderful find!

The smalls are my faves!! Love your score! Great idea to scan them. I have a few unused cards from my Mom. I've been saving them...for what I don't know cuz I don't want to use them...scanning would be perfect! What didn't I think of that??!! My blonde is showing ;)

Love your header photo especially the window with the watering cans. I've been trying to figure out how to display Mom's better...thanks so much for all your inspiraton!

Have a great weekend!

Those are so sweet. I love old cards and letters, especially the one with messages on them. I love thinking about the people who lived at that time. It's nice that you can scan them and make extras. Great idea.

There are few things more charming than vintage cards. These make a darling collection!

Rebecca said...

Super cute-can't wait to see how you display them!

Amy @MaisonDecor said...

Very cute cards. Is that what you do? You can scan them and print on heavy paper stock?? I have a huge collection of my husbands mom's cards and wasn't sure what to do with them! Also, I see you have a cute little garden house yourself..at least I can spy a corner of it. I collect old watering cans too.

I love the cards and placecards. My nieces love to come to dinner at Aunt Cindy's house and find placecards on the table.
