I've actually been home for a while--just getting back to a normal routine again (lots going on around here). And Yes--I've been to a lot of flea markets, but this one in Springfield, Ohio was by far the best one I've ever been to (even better than the highway 127 Sale that I went to last year). This was my first time there, but definitely not my last! Booth after booth of just awesome items--
Love that stove!
This was all this man had at his booth--spools and bobbins of every size that you could imagine! I had to get some--I have so many already, but I can't resist these things.
And the vintage hardware!!
There were lots of booths just like this with your pick and choose of any type of hardware that you could think of--prices were reasonable too--PLUS lots of good haggling!
Here's just a fraction of what I found and brought home with me--
So I found this booth with license plates--hundreds of them, and the vendor also offered cut up plates so you could make your own words--by the time I got there the E's were gone--had to improvise with the backward 3's. (wish I would have got more)
I picked up a couple of these printer's trays and of course the cool hardware and I LOVE those alphabet printer's stamps. I wasn't sure what those black handles were that you see on the right, and the man told me that they were handles to printer's trays. And that's where my newest art comes in.
....some more of that hardware again--but I made it a little more whimsical by painting it and adding this fun knob that I found at Hobby Lobby...
So--it's good to be back 'home' in more ways than one!
Now--it's time to get serious--I now know my show schedule (they're all listed on my sidebar--the most I've ever done--Yikes!!--a little scary, but I can't wait!)
