By now, you know I love a flea market. Especially the one in Clarence, NY by my mom's house. (Ignore the fragment!) I'm just back from another trip to Buffalo and managed a flea market trip. I hit pay dirt I think. I got the above cake tray, a Christmas gift for a friend, for $15. (Hopefully she won't lurk around the blog so it'll be a surprise!)
I also fed my love of Pyrex with a little bowl. This one is about 7 inches across along the top. It's a little scratched up but not bad. And it in such an oh so cheerful color, how could I leave it behind. After all, it was only $5.
And I bought a cake plate for me. It was also $15, at the same vendor. I thought it would coordinate perfectly with a plate of my great-grandmother's. It doesn't, as it's a darker green. But they still look nice together and I'm happy for this little gem.
And lastly, I have been looking for a globe. I have a high entertainment center and bookcase in my living room and I thought a globe would look nice on the top of one of them. This one - post USSR era - was only $10 and has already found it's home on the top of the bookcase. It had to suffer through a number of "I've got the whole world..." jokes but I don't think it's any worse for the wear.
I'm grateful for another successful flea market trip. And also for a patient manfriend who accompanied me and didn't mind the browsing. Great time!!
