Flea Market Junking Fix

My month-long junking dry spell came to an end last weekend.  I didn't get a good junking fix while I was on vacation a few weeks ago, so it felt mighty fine to get out there and push my cart around....squeaky wheel and all.  The first Saturday of every month is the DeAnza College Flea Market in Cupertino, so off I went with high hopes and a promise to myself to leave all the big stuff behind.

It was a silver kind of day.  
I love the patina on this vintage brush and mirror set, but....
I don't love the broken brush.  I had a rough idea of how I could repurpose it and the dealer was more than happy to accept my "it's broken" offer.

Rhinestones and pieces of broken earrings.  Aren't those fish cute?

It's a good thing keys don't take up much room because I'll never have enough.

The frame was a great deal along with the rusty tins, salt shaker, and silver vase.

Yummy detail.

Switching gears here.....
A vintage pull down school map in great shape.
Marked, Weber Costello Chicago Illinois.
I couldn't find a date on it, but it's probably from the late 50's or early 60's, before zip codes and after Alaska and Hawaii.

I made my way around the entire flea market a couple of times just to get some exercise make sure I didn't miss anything.  It wasn't easy leaving some very interesting large items behind, but it was nice to have everything fit in just one cart load.
