Flea Market Finds!

As per our usual Sunday morning routine, Bubba & I went to a flea market this morning.  I found a few misc. craft supplies.  Nothing unusual or exciting.

The real thrill for me is in 2 of my finds.  First, my little shoe with roses:

Shoe

Shoe

I have no idea if this is old or not.  It was in a booth with tons of things that I know for sure were vintage.  The bottom is marked, "Burton & Burton - Bogart, GA - Made In China".

Truthfully, I don't care if it's old or not.  It's mint green with pink roses on it.  It reminds me of Marie Antoinette and I love it!  However, if anyone can enlighten me, I would be grateful!

I didn't realize until I bought this little shoe that I'm a shoe collector!  I think I have 5 or 6 pretty little shoes!  Who knew?  Not me!  I guess I've just picked up a pretty shoe here and there not even thinking about it.  In real life (LOL!) I love shoes too!  I just don't like wearing them.  I have some really nice shoes but I never wear them.  I love flip flops.  Pretty ones!  I would them all year long if I could.  They're comfy, they're cute and it's like walking around barefoot without being barefoot!

Ok, enough shoe babble!  Later this week, I'll wander around the house with my camera and share my little shoe collection here.

In the meantime, my next treasure is this vintage hat:

Hat

No, I do not collect vintage hats!  Heaven knows, I don't need to collect anything else!!  I buy these when I find them for a few dollars just to take the vintage flowers off of them.  I seem to keep finding pink ones though!  I'd love to start finding some blue, yellow and purple flowered hats!  But, I found pink today.  I've already removed the flowers and added them to the "flower" drawer in my stash cart.  Will have to share photos of that with you too.

For now, I'm very tired and need to go lay down.  I think I'm going threw some withdrawals from the medication that I'm on.  I see my Dr. again on Wednesday.  I plan to try to ride it out but we'll see what she says.

Such great flea-market finds! I love them both! I guess I collect teacups. I have several vintage cups and saucers that just decorate my mantel. Thanks for sharing!

Hi Pam! You always find the coolest things! Well, I love the shoe - wouldn't it make a great pincushion? The hat is neat too - gotta love old hats!
Have a good nap and hang in there!
Hugs,
Kerry
