Flea Market Find of the Year

I'm so excited to be hosting Flea Market Find of the Year again! It's been such a wonderful year of thrifted goodness, I thought it would be fun for everyone to share their very favourite find of the year and of course vote for your favourite second hand discovery.

I thought I'd share a few of my own favourite finds for the year, I've been very lucky indeed!

The highlights from my thrifting year have included, the lovely blue sewing machine, retro yellow canisters and the beautiful Polaroid camera in it's original case. But my very favourite find.. well it just has to be my pair of mustard velvet armchairs from the local tip shop, Around Again.  

 So what has been your find of the year?

 To enter your second hand treasure in the running to win Find of the Year, all you have to do is blog about it, then add your blog post to the Linky below. Please ensure you write your name and your blog name in the Linky (eg. Sophie @ Her Library Adventures) so everyone know who to vote for.

Now to the voting. To vote for your favourite find just email me at sophieisobeldesigns[at] with the blog name of your favourite find. Too easy! You can only vote once so be sure to check out everyone's blogs before making your decision.

The Linky will be open until Tuesday the 8th at Midnight. Then you will have until Saturday the 12th at Midnight (Australia time)  to vote on your favourite find.  The winner will be announced next Sunday at 10am. 

The winner will receive will receive this lovely vintage inspired prize pack featuring a few of my favourite recent find  and of course claim the title of Find of the Year.
