More treasures!

While my daughter was here, we made a quick trip out to the flea market to see Harry and Vanessa. The weather was beautiful and it seemed a waste to stay inside.

Vanessa and Harry were full of hugs for me and Leigh, so excited to see her. They loaded her up with goodies as usual, a couple of stretchy bracelets and a pocket stone, and they gave me a few strands of chips. Blackstone, heat treated agate and quartz, looks like halloween!




Then we went for a bit of a wander and found the treasures of treasures!!! There was a booth full of junk - literally junk, door knobs, old campaign buttons, silver spoons, keys, watch parts, you name it there was a bin full of it. We had hit the mother load!!!

Leigh picked this one out, there is an inscription on it I can barely make out. Gonna research it a bit. She wants a necklace with this one.



I picked out this little beauty. I am thinking a bracelet, but I still have time to change my mind :)


These made us squeal and the vendor had a good chuckle at our expense watching us dig thru all of the bins. He is going to be back in April - I am going with my check book!!!

  1. Oh my goodness! I love those watch pieces. We have some antique shops in town, and now I want to go check them out. Very neat!
