Flea Market Finds..

Good morning, on this lovely and brisk Flea Market Finds Day! How has your week been? Hope you have found a few interesting bits and pieces on your adventures this week. Thanks so much to everyone who played along last week. There were so many fabulous finds, especially some lovely old patterns. I think we have all been inspired by Kate's gorgeous dress making. To check out all the finds pop over here.

Well some weeks you just never know what you will come across when your scouring the local op shops for hidden treasures. This week at the tip shop, Aroundagain I was delighted by my unusual discoveries.

My finds this week.. this fabulous 1960's radio, a sweet little vase and a super cute Kodak Instamatic camera.

I couldn't believe my luck to spot this lovely radio amongst the old computers and toasters. Not only has it found a perfect home on the mantel piece, I've also been searching for an old radio to use in the production of Grease, so it was a successful trip indeed.

So what have you found this week? To play along just leave a comment and add your flea market blog post link (not just your blog link) in the Linky below so we can all check out your goodies. Remember you can play any time during the week! And please feel free to upload your fabulous finds to the Flea Market Finds flickr pool too.

Happy Sunday!
Much Love

  18. I love the way that things are so new and great, then fade completely from our thoughts and then come back again as collectible. Dad bought a new whiz bang Kodak 110 instamatic camera whe we were kids, but I had forgotten all about it. I wonder what happened to it? Thanks for the memories. The radio will be perfect for Grease. Well spotted.

  24. I wonder which grandpa used to own that radio. I bet it was only tuned to 3KZ or the races on Saturday!

  25. Brilliant find. A friend recently suggested I keep an old radio I was going to hoist. Her argument was ... what if there's a blackout ... sounds a bit silly but I bought batteries ... that sounds even sillier ... but you never know ... LOL. Thank YOU Sophie for hosting this lovely meme.

  28. Fabulous radio find, lady. Now how did you find what you were actually looking for? I need to find a fishtank snappy-like. Ours appears to have sprung an undetectable but scarily persistent leak...
