Flea Market Success

Today, my mom and I went to the flea market not far from her house. It was a rainy, yucky morning so our expectations were low. There were not a lot of vendors there. However, we both managed success!! I bought this lovely black glass bead necklace for $5. I foresee a pretty heavy rotation for this piece, as it is really pretty and so versatile.
I also found these two crates from soda pop. Since my living room is yellow and red, these will fit in perfectly!! At $5 each, I had to get them both. I can't wait to try them out.
My mom got a bench to use as a coffee table in her living room. It looks great!!

And, my mom found this lovely little piece in the basement. It was my stepfather's mother's camera, an oldddd Kodak. I am planning on using it as a display piece. It's just a matter of where it will fit.
Such lovely finds! I'm so glad we didn't let the rain deter us from the outing!

I really like your blog! I'm a new author and have enjoyed this new experience. I find that it's the most difficult and most rewarding. I'm also a graphic designer and love having that creative outlet as well.
Thanks for your post! I will be back for more updates. :-)

How cool! Love the old camera. That is quite a find.

YUM! Squirt. That was one of my favorite sodas when I was a kid.
