At the Flea Market

Today I went to the Alemany Flea Market. It was slim pickins because I got there as people were packing up, but I got good deals on a few things, and it was still fun to go!

This vendor wanted $15 for this box of buttons. I thought that was a pretty good deal since there were some really cool, big buttons in the box, but I do not need one more button, so I didn't get them.

I loved this aqua chippy painted table, but I have no place for it right now.

I got a few of these vintage noise makers. They're really cute, and I thought they'd make neat party hat stands, and I thought they'd just be cute in a kids room. These were $4 each. A little more than what I would have like to have paid, but I liked them a lot. I got 3 of them.

I got this shelf (which I'll paint) and the green wrought iron plant stand for our guest bedroom. $13 for the both of them.

You found some great deals! I love old buttons, too. I made some great fridge magnets with some huge old unusual ones. Those noise makers are especially adorable!
