Flea Market Finds..

What a lovely Sunday morning for Flea Market Finds. I've just popped the kettle on and am so looking forward to enjoying checking out your lovely finds with week over a cup of tea or two. A huge thank you to everyone who played along last week, helping to create Flea Markets biggest week yet! Oh and did you girls find some beautiful things! If you haven't already, you simply must pop in for a look over here.

So my little find this week was something I've always wanted to find, hiding in a little box at the back of the sweetest of shops.

A lovely vintage telephone complete with instructions.
It seems my telephone collection is increasing as rapidly as my typewriters. I do adore accidentally creating new collections. How I just need somewhere to keep them!

So what delights 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

  5. Happy to be playing today!

    I really love the idea of collecting old phones and type writers, but I don't think the Boy would love more collections nor do we have any more space :(

    I'll have to live vicariously through your collections then I guess lol

  17. Can you believe that we had a phone like this. You turned the handle round and round to get the exchange and Mr Barclay would magically ask what number you wanted! Just a great find - well done!
