During the years I was making dolls and had to hunt for vintage textiles, I would go to the flea market at 4:30am on Sundays with my flashlight, and stop at every garage sale I would come across. Never fail, I would always find a little something extra for myself. So, it’s no surprise that as JR and I are shopping flea markets, auctions and thrift stores to find things for our first antiques and flea market show, I would find a little something for myself.
Some of my favorite finds over the past few weeks?
A glass chandelier ( I want to keep it SOOOOOO badly…my husband and I are still in negotiations over this one)
A set of amazing green glass dishes
A clock radio, straight out of the sixties, which proudly sits in our kitchen with it’s static-y stations until it moves to our 1961 Scotty camper.
A vintage sailboat pitcher.
And my turquoise Spring coat, which started as a Dennis Basso “too-large” coat and after a few alterations, has become another favorite! It certainly has a 50's opera coat style to it.
That is why I love other peoples’ junk.
