Flea Market finds.... just a little early

I am so happy over my find for this week that I just couldn't wait until Sunday for Sophie's flea market finds, so I am showing you all now.

As in last week, this weeks find was from ebay. Actually from the same seller as last week too. After purchasing all the fabulous vintage transfers I was looking through her ebay shop for more when I came across this. I was totally smitten. It was feeding my little laundry obsession perfectly, and for $2, I had to have it.

Look at it! It's so gorgeous! And the cutest thing, the size......

I totally love it! It is made of brass and was made to contain the little pegs and originally had a little clothesline as well, and it was used when travelling to hang up your delicates. I can't believe how something so small is bringing me so much joy!

Go and check out other flea market finds here, but you had better wait until Sunday, I'm just a little early!
