Flea Market Finds...

I decided to play along with flea market finds this week over at Sophie @ her library adventures. I usually am a spectator, visiting all the entrants to oooooh and ahhhhh over their finds but this week i have decided to play along.

I must admit, i've always enjoyed op shopping but only since i started seriously crafting did i find a real thrill in it. It really can be quite addictive! scouring op-shops for that those hidden treasures to make all sorts of crafty goodies with! And the things that i buy rarely end up the way they started. I am fortunate to have several op-shops within 10 mins drive which is great.

so these are my flea market finds for this week.....

a pair of vintage purses - 1 found at a garge sale for 50c and the other for $2 in the op shop. The black one is in great condition with luxurious velvet. The white one has a few stains so im thinking i might replace the material part of it with a vintage lace or something?

Some vintage sheets and embroidered linen...

This sweet doiley tablecloth caught my eye in the op shop i just had to have it for only $5....

you can head over to Sophie's to check out more goodies...

Thanks for looking!
