Three years ago I moved from my hometown and I haven't explored much my new neighborhood. I definitely had no idea there was a flea market here in Carolina. It was my friend Miss Lou who told me and we had to go there right away.
There was a little bit of everything, resellers, crafters and people selling their things, like clothes, electronics, decorations etc.. Those are the ones that I look forward the most. You know, because someone's trash is someone else's treasure.
The first thing I found that captivated me was this Mushroom Canister set. I spotted it from a distance and almost flew to its seller's table so no one else would try and get it instead of me. I know the set comes with four canisters but I don't really have much space for display so I only got the tallest and the smallest canisters and paid $5. When I got home I regretted not buying the whole set and tried to stalk the seller the next weekend but I had no luck. I seriously need to take a picture of how cute they look on top of my craft room's cupboard.
My friend and I walked a while around the flea market and ate nutella flan, it was so YUMMY that I forgot to take a picture. Then spotted a lady selling many nice things, she had Miss Lou's yellow camera, many records, cassettes, clothes and porcelain. Among all the porcelain she had this super cute money box or piggy bank or whatever you call it :D. Miss Lou spotted it first but she had a little talk with the seller who was confused about the price and my friend didn't want to go further with the transaction.
Then I saw it, as I always do I turned it upside down to see if there was any information from the factory, distributor, date or anything. I saw its cute little label, I read Japan and I was sold, I got it for $1.
Have you had any awesome finds lately?
