Flea Market Party

Well I am a little late but I am jumping onboard for the Flea Market Fancy Marketteer party. This looks like so much fun, and I hope you will visit all the other participants. Be sure to leave a comment that you are visiting.

My daughter has really been finding some great bargains in her yard sale ventures. A few weeks ago she bought some very lovely linens. I think she told me she paid $2.00 for a full size sheet, 2 pillowcases, 3 or 4 dresser scarves that are all beautifully crocheted. They also have the little eyelet stitching, which I am sorry but I don't know what it is called.

All I know is they are very lovely. And the stitching is beautiful.

This past weekend my daughter was out early again and this time she snagged these lovelies.....
Fiesta Ware in an assortment of colors. They were in great condition and the lady who sold them reduced her price for the whole set.

I love to quilt, so I was thrilled to find these quilting magazines for 25c each.

The one on top is an Australian magazine that runs about $10 at the craft store. It was a great find as well as the other current magazines.

I hope that you will have fun visiting the rest of the Flea Market party. I am on my way there now :-)

Happy thriftin'!

Isn't it great to find those quilt magazines at thrift sales? They can be more that $4 each retail! I love getting them cheap. Think of all the fun things you can make now.
