Flea Market Finds
I am in desperate need of an op shop fix! The only time I had for a fix this week was in between errands at my very tiny little local. Sometimes the pickings are slim, sometimes it's a gold mine. I love to sit on the floor of the shop and go through all their patterns, I have snagged quite a few gems this way!
For my money this week I think I scored well! A couple of vintage teatowels and quite a few vintage patterns. Some of them are mail order ones, I love the envelope almost as much as the contents! Look at that address, and the postage date!
It actually wasn't until I was snapping some pics this morning before I realised how well I scored. This dolly pattern was in the same envelope as the kitty pattern, it is super sweet! The patterns were marked 50c each but the lady decided she couldn't charge that as "they're not real patterns". So, $3 for everything. I must admit I threw another $2 in the charity tin, and it seems good karma paid off.
