Awesome Flea Market Treasures!

Scott and I took mom to a couple of Flea Markets on Sunday for Mother's Day.  I found some really great treasures!

First, a couple of great vintage hats to take apart for the flowers:
That pink one is just covered with shaded velvet leaves!  The white one has roses roses on it.  I think I'll use some of those roses to make some Shabby Wedding Cuff Bracelets.  I paid $5.00 for both of these hats.  $2.50 each!

Next, I found a couple of bags of buttons:
These bags were $6.00 each.  I just couldn't resist them.  It's going to take me awhile to pull them all off the cards. 

Then I found this awesome trim.  I think it's from the 70's:
There's about 3 yards on here and I only paid $3.00 for it!

The Holy Grail of all Flea Markets for us is coming up this Sunday.  It's in Elkhorn Wisconsin at the Fair Grounds.  It's the 1st Elkhorn Flea Market of the season and I am counting the days!  I find so much great junk there.  I can't wait!

You got a great haul! How I wish we had flea markets like you have. Don't know if you noticed but the trim looks like hugs and kisses (X's and O's).
