Flea Market Finds..

Oh how I love a good second hand find and when Sunday comes rolling around just I can't wait to see all your finds for the week. Some wonderful discoveries again last week, you girls really know how to shop. A lovely piece of furniture here, fabulous shoes and handbag, a gorgeous brooch collection and some great garage sale pieces too. Yay for second hand treasures!

So I had one of those amazing 'Flea Market Gods are shining down on me' moments yesterday, when we made a quick stop at Around Again, so my hubby could look for some parts to make an aviary. I walked into the 'good room' and sitting in front of me was the most delightful little phone stand. I just loved seeing Vic's gorgeous phone stand makeover and now I have the perfect place to put my little retro phone.

My little telephone stand..

I also stopped off at Sweet Lilly, a lovely little homewares and antique shop to pick up some ephemera for some new collages I'm working on. I came out with a fabulous 1948 copy of Home Journal (above) and these lovely old photographs.

I hope the Flea Market Gods have shone down on you this week! What have you found? To play along just leave a comment and put your flea market blog post (not just your blog) in the MckLinky below so we can check out your goodies.

I'm off to mark a whole stack of year 12 English drafts and essays, hope your Sunday is a little bit more exciting than mine!

PS. I will be back a little later to announce the winner of my Valentine Giveaway.

Much Love
