Fabulous Flea

The title sounds like a great name for a consignment store doesn't it?  I've found some nifty, thrifty finds over the last couple of weeks at flea markets, yard sales and thrift shops.  My sister got in on the action and scored the best buy of the month.  It's nice to have sisters out scouting for you!  Scroll down for a lowdown of our treasures.  Click on photos to enlarge.

Some treasures found

 A nice old cow creamer  above- $1 came from a VFW yard sale for charity
And two globed candle holders below - $2 for the pair - came from an individual's yard sale

 Good old Goodwill!  I found 8 ice tea goblets and 8 wine goblets in this etched striped pattern of crystal stemware.  Haven't had time to look up the pattern name yet, but it has a nice "ring" to it.  It's nice to have sisters who look out for you. Marty bought this "China Pearl" Leling China service for 12 for $25 at a yard sale on Saturday. It also has a serving tray, two serving bowls and a creamer and sugar!  96 pieces in all.  She paid about 30 cents a piece for all this china!  What a find!  Oh, and did I mention that she didn't keep it for herself - she must love me lots to give it up for me.

 I bought the peach linen tablecloth and napkins for $5 at the flea market.

These little vintage napkins are on cards with delicate little vintage hankies.  They are on cut-out dolls with a poem about hankies written on the card.  Paid $5 for 10 of these. 

Don't you love the vintage tea towels above?  And the wonderful vintage linens below!  You won't believe that I bought them for 25 cents each!  They are perfect - no stains at all.

This Weiss rhinestone brooch and Pell earrings that "almost" match was sold to me as a set for $2 at a yard sale.  Couldn't turn those down.
I got a box full of great stuff from the VFW yard sale for $1.  It was full of old buttons, vintage sewing stuff and these fabulous pink Hazel Atlas Crinoline ruffled bowls and sugar bowl. 

And I saved one of the best for last.  I love this large sunflower crocheted doily. It will be pretty on a summer table setting with fresh cut sunflowers! 
The weekend is just around the corner, so off I go for more adventures.  Happy thrifty shopping to you!
