Flea Market Time - September


Woohoo, September arrived and a whole week has already passed by! In no time we're going to be celebrating Thanksgiving and Christmas :/  Time is flying away!

This past weekend we had the first Saturday of the month, so, as usual I went to the flea market. It was a very hot day. Well, it was my bad that I arrived at closing time, middle of the day, many of the vendors were already packing up. I went all around very quickly and these were the items that caught my eye.


Not too many, I know, but I'm liking them all!


This whole set of milk glass footed cups was my last find of the day. There were many more milk glass items on the table but somehow this set of 10 cups was what I was drawn to.

I could pictured them on the hutch, filling up empty spots. The price for the whole set: $4.

I love these blue color plates and the designs on them.

I don't think they're the real deal. Can you see the painting mismatch on the above picture right lower corner?
Blue and white plates made in England

They are supposed to be "Tonquin" Royal Staffordshire by Clarice Cliff and made in England. I think they're a cheap reproduction.

However I bought them, as I said I like them. 7 plates ---> $10.

I also found a wooden accordion wine rack.

I'm liking accordion racks, remember the last one I found in one of the pasts flea markets? This one was also one dollar.

And you can see, I'm already having fun with all this stuff. :)

green cups

Last but not least, these green what? Planters? Cups? Love their color! Again, I can see them on my vignettes around the house. The price for the four: $1.50

  5. Those plates are the real deal....great find.......its transferware, the design is transfered on a sheet and sometimes the design slips a little and you can tell where it began and ended. They are not hand painted, these are very nice!!!

  19. Love the dishes. They are the real thing, it is transferware. A little mismatch isn't unusual on transferware. A great find.
