Maybe I was overwhelmed?
On my list: linens, fabric, quilts, mason jars, other old jars/bottles. Blue and white plates & / or pitchers. Blue or turquoise graniteware. White ironstone. Old wooden crates. Pincushions. Old funnels. Old pearl buttons?
All a big, fat No! But: hey, lady, we got tube socks! Twofer ten bucks! (yeah, right.)...
Or all the usual beachy stuff? Ships in bottles, seashells, old seaglass collections, Nantucket baskets? Uh, no....
I did find this sweet pink silk heart...a hatpin holder, I think....
The note inside says it's in its original box.
How is it possible that a market with 200 dealers had not a single Mason jar?
PS I even brought quite a few dollars for the surly young man with the lovely Victorian jewelry, but he wasn't there. I am so wanting stacking rings, old wedding rings? And he had a beauty---rose gold with tiny flowers, miniscule pearls and paste centers, but last week when I gasped at the 138.oo price he looked down his nose at me (and he was sitting down! Good trick, my boy!) and he said, It is verrry old." Well, me too, lol---or at least that's how he made me feel!
Maybe next week?
What's on your flea market list? Any special wants or must-haves?
