My breakfast this morning. I love summer days!
I read about Myra’s flea market challenge after breakfast this morning, just as I got to my mothers house today and we headed to our favorite summer places and got down to some real find hunting in the sun! I don’t need a challenge to go to flea markets, but with this in my head I think I did some good haggling today and got home very pleased with life!
I started yesterday, as we were heading for my parents where our holiday started. I bought some vintage photos for 20 SEK and then found a big pile of fabric (old table clothes and so on) with a sign saying: “fabric for free!). So I got some fins there, for nothing:
So here are todays finds from Snedbro loppis, everything for about 230 SEK:
Ribbon and lace.
Paper rolls with angels and roses for collage (not enough for wall decoration anyway).
Love this fabric!
Two jars of plastic pearls for 20 SEK! Whoohoo! A t-shirt for my boyfriend, a fun note pad with different kinds of papers in and some playing cards to use for ATC cardstock.
A bag of about 100 matchboxes for 10 SEK.
An old knitting magazine, a sewing kit for summer travels, blue yarn and a address thing (my grandmother had one and I remember playing with it as a child). Fun!
Playing cards with the Swedish tiger on each back (love him!) and a tin with the text “camping” (appropriate for this summers doings).
Five new home decoration magazines for 10 sek.
An embroidered rose (lovely!) that might become something else later, a chocolate tin for storage – and vintage cupboard decoration paper.
Two empty vintage photo albums to play with/in this winter.
And some real kitschy stuff, or what do you say about a green plastic cat that I just liked and bought. Don’t know what to do with it at all…
Small skeins of yarn – this whole pile for 20 SEK!
And the last photo of todays finds: another tin, some embroidery floss yarn and little stuff to use in the art journal.
And mom’s favorite find:
A box of thread! And this:
What a great day!
