Last Weekend Flea Market Finds

With the Holidays over, my friend and I headed to the
Flea Market for the first time in months.

Here is what I found!
Do you see a gardening theme here?

This adorable little piece is like a patio cart.
May get a plant or may go on my desk with pens in it.
even the wheels look real
it was $8

what is this?
a jar opener!
It is red and said IGA, the store in my hometown
$3 and something I may well use!

I see flowers in this hand e toter!
love the color and the price $7

I collect miniature wheelbarrows
metal and green...it was marked $22, but the booth 
had everything marked half off!!

And in honor of President's Day
and 
The Charleston Riot
Abraham Centennial post card
sent by a little girl to her Grandmother

The mini wheel barrow is so cute! I've never seen one before! I think my favorite is the metal tote. How pretty it would be filled with potted geraniums! And the little pot on wheels is adorable, what lucky finds!

Oh-What fun finds~ I remember those jar lid openers but had forgotten all about them. My Mom had one when I was a kid. You found some really neat treasures there. I love that little cart that holds the pot-it makes me think "fairy garden". xo Diana

Wow so envious! Love those miniature garden treasures you've found specially the little "patio cart". Could imagine planting some lovely flower on it. Great finds. Got my eye on your next posts.

What fun finds! I can't wait for sales to start here....but that is a while away- we are buried under over a foot of snow and it just doesn't melt fast here. Spring fever- full blown! It is so encouraging to see your gorgeous yard on your header photo!!!!
