San Diego Vintage Flea Market Haul

Back in July I told you about the San Diego Vintage Flea Market.   (Read all about it HERE.)  I ended that post by insisting that I would attend the next one.  (In fact I believe there was even a wager involved.)

Well it's a good thing no one took me up on that bet because I would have lost my shirt.  As is often the case, "things" got in the way--things like sports and theater practice and vacations--and I never made it back.

That is, I never made it back until yesterday, when the stars aligned and enabled me to attend.   I didn't buy much but what I did get was worth a quick post.  Enjoy!

I just couldn't pass up this sweet milk glass dish.  (And yes, I will be planting that succulent in said dish after I'm done writing this post.)


At the last market I bought a green flower frog to use as a picture holder.  This time I bought a brass one to hold markers.  


I think it's going to look great on my new desk!


Another gift for my desk is this letter sorter.  


I plan on giving it a fresh coat of gold paint because, as you may or may not know, I happen to have some lying around.



I'm not sure what I'm going to do with these metal letters but I'll let you know as soon as I decide. 


My final purchase was this guy (which shouldn't surprise anyone).  He is so heavy and smooth and shiny; I just had to make him mine!  (Plus he'll have lots of little friends here at the house. )


So I'm not making any promises (and certainly no bets) but it's definitely my goal to attend the next one in May.   Give the SD Vintage Flea a "like" on Facebook if you want to be notified about the exact date.   

See you there!

  6. I think your letter holder was for holding 45 RPM vinyl records. I am old enough to remember them. =)
