Flea Market finds


Joining in again with Sophie's Flea Market Finds. I have been seeing a lot of vintage tins around lately, and it reminded me of all my tins. They are scattered throughout the house, so they often get forgotten about. I have a bit of a rule about buying vintage tins. Never pay more than $4.00. I have got all these from various op shops and the large rectangle one at the back I got from my local flea market. The one and only time I have been actually. For a whole $3.00. Bargain.

What a gorgeous collection! I just adore that strawberry one. I am on the hunt for a large, beautiful tin to keep cakes in.

They are all so pretty. Good rule - I ahve seen some very expensive tins around the place. When I see old tins like this, I always wonder what was in them and if they were used to house someones button collection at some point!

I'm a bit of a tin lover too.... Great find at the flea market... There's a really great op-shop at Ungary in NSW that you can pick ooddles of old tins up for 0.50 cents each... Really worth a look if you are ever in that area..

Hi Selina! I gave my daughter the little horse needle case you made, for her birthday on Saturday. She absolutely loves it thank you. I like the ribbon and button fastener, never thought to do that.

I miss flee markets! I love hunting through piles of bits and pieces to come across hidden treasures... In Madrid the opportunity is rare not like say in Melbourne :)
