Flea Market Fun!

This past Sunday was one of Omaha's monthly flea markets, and I had a good time! I thought it would be fun to make a post of some of my finds. All of these items will be available for sale via my own flea market at some point in the near future, but email me if you have any questions!


These are 1950s prescription files from a pharmacy. The boxes are cool and the have a neat little metal contraption inside to hold the filled prescriptions. They would be great as a base for a mixed media scrapbook. I'll sell the prescriptions via my site and then sell the boxes and holders separately.


Some linens. The big lacy thing on the right is an older vintage collar. I love the embroidered animals at the bottom.


These are super cool! I was told that they are antique Chinese gaming tokens made from 1750-1800. They are intricately carved mother of pearl. These will make amazing pendants or jewelry. I've never seen these in real life so I was excited to get a big lot of them!


Fun paper items, almanacs and kid's books.


My favorite things to buy are, of course, many tiny things. Tokens, buckles, an old compass, birds, small letter openers made from bone.


Also I can never pass up vintage religious medals!


Oh... shiny stuff. I've never seen a mirrored buckle!


More small things.


I need more paper stuff like I need a kick in the head, but the price was right so I got about 200 pieces of antique postcards and photos here.


I love the way these vintage canning labels look! I should photocopy these before I sell them.

In other news, I recently acquired a HUGE amount of beads, findings, cabochons, charms, kits, etc., all NEW in the package. These will also be posted into the flea market section of my site at great discounts over retail price. I have a ton of this stuff so it will be priced to sell!

Hope all is well out there!
