This past Saturday Angela and I headed out to a monthly flea market extra, extra early. When we arrived most of the booths still had sheets over them. We knew our favorite booth would be open so we hit it first. We also left wish lists with a few other vendors we chatted with. Everyone was so friendly. Here are my snags from Saturday.
First up is this darling ceramic Napcoware Angel by National Potteries Co in Cleveland, Ohio, which distributed inexpensive figurines that were made in Japan. She is numbered c6351.
I found this small paper mache tray for $1. It has a stamp that reads “Registered Celebrate, made in Japan, Alcohol Proof” on the underside.
This avocado green Deluxe Album for Polaroid is from Salvation Army. I paid $1.25 for it. It goes great with my black album I bought a few weeks ago at a Goodwill for $2.
I have already starting filling these albums with old family pictures from the 1970s and early 1980s. I just had to see how cute the photos would look in these albums. Please note that using old albums is not recommended and can damage the photos. Old albums can contain PVC and other plastics which can destroy photos. I will be looking for some archival sleeves made of pure polyester, polyethylene or polypropylene that fit these albums. If I find a place that sells replacement pages for old albums I will post about it.
Also from Salvation Army is a pair of mugs for my family to sip warm soup out of.
Check out this bright turquoise water cooler jug by Thermos for $2.50 found at a flea market.
My final find is this village of vintage paper houses. They are all stamped Japan on the bottom. I paid a total of $12 for the 5 for them.
I’m already pumped for this coming weekend. Who knows what we will be hauling home.
