Hi! The brief couple days of glorious weather sort of greyed off into chilly beach/spring again, so I decided to go to the big flea market today. I was glad I took my usual route through the seashore area, normally impassable if the weather is nice, what we call a "beach day"...only a few Canada geese were there on the road with me.
The market was busy! And a bit crazed and junky. Flea market lovers know that it will be hard to get to from now through September and like me many will stay away. So everyone had dollars in hand and dollar signs in their starry little eyes. Quite a frantic pace, actually....
As usual when I have gone to the ATM beforehand, there were no huge finds to be had, just some fun small things.
These are chandelier crystals.
They are huge, much grander than they seem on this big white platter.
They will be icicle Christmas ornaments for my etsy shop in the fall.
The seller asked me if I was going to use the crystals for jewelry, and at the moment I said no, described my icicles I make. (They've been very popular!)
But now that I have the pieces at home I see that these four are very small and fine.
I love the amethyst! So---maybe? Fall pendants with glass bead and metal chains? Pretty sterling silver bails? I think Yes!
How about you? Any fun treasures this weekend?
