Saturday's Flea Market Finds

The sun came out this weekend and warmed us up here in California.  Yippee!  I was hoping to get out to Alameda Point on Sunday for their monthly antique show, but prior plans got in the way.  Saturday was the monthly DeAnza College Flea Market in Cupertino, so I decided to give that a try.  This flea market used to be much bigger until they put up a parking lot.  (I'm going to have that song stuck in my head).   I can still find some good old stuff, but I don't see as many antique dealers these days.  It was worth the trip and gave me my weekly junkin' fix.

Love the shape of the clock on the left.  These were practically free because they don't work, so I think I'll be using them as picture frames.  The ledger has some writing in it, but most of the pages are blank.  I'll clean up the Tin Man's hat funnel and stick a plant in it.  I'm going to "felt" that yummy pink 100% wool blanket and then make something out of it one of these days.  Too many projects, so little time.

I got a great deal on all this brass flatware.  These are great for stamping because they're so soft.  I'll use some brass polish on the ones with spots and leave the others alone.

14" x 19" Atlas of American Agriculture from 1928.  Thirty four pages of colorful graphics, but boring reading unless you care about the diurnal  march of wind velocity in Dodge City, Kansas.

My key supply has been running low; these should last me awhile.

Jewels, jewels,

and more jewels.

Keys + jewels =  a good thing.

This guy is either picking his nose or his finger wasn't fast enough for the camera.

I like using old black and white pictures for price tags.

I love vintage postcards, especially the embossed ones. 
I couldn't resist that little blue bird pocket notebook.
