Old Lace and Vintage Hankies

We had a awesome time at the Flea Market in Elkhorn, Wisconsin yesterday!  It's a huge market and takes hours and hours to walk through. The weather couldn't have been more perfect.  Sunny and about 80 degrees.

I found treasure!  Lots of treasure!  Old lace, vintage hankies, sweet little buttons and more!  This was a bag of appliques, pretty little crocheted pieces and trim.  Perfect for crazy quilting!

Next, I found yards and yards of narrow lace in different colors:
Then, some little bags of lace for $1.00 each:

Next, I found some sweet little buttons and check out that bunch of vintage millinery grapes!  Can't wait to use that on a crazy quilt piece!
I also found some pretty vintage hankies.  The small one are for mom for her door pillows.  The pink one and the one with the roses are for my crazy quilting:

Last but not least, I found a few interesting pieces.  The needlepoint piece is for mom to make something out of.  The baby applique is for mom as well.  I thought she could make a pretty little baby pillow out of it.  Last, I found that lace table runner.  I'll share with mom.  There's a lot we can do with that!
It was a really fun and nice day of treasure hunting!  Click on the pictures to enlarge them and see things up close!

Oh, I am sooooo totally drooling over those millinery grapes!
What a lovely haul, and I bet those lace yardages came from Home-Sew. I used to buy a lot from them and that was how it was bundled.
Have fun!!!

What fun! I love flea markets! And 2nd hand stores, especially little out of the way ones that aren't as picked over. You certainly had fun and got lots of treasures to bring home!

Laurie said...

OK Pam, I'm drooling over all your finds! I need your luck when I go to the markets and estate sales. Wishing you and Mom health and happiness!

How I envy you your flea markets! It's not that I need any more stash, but there's a lot of truth to the old adage that the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence (ie. new stash is better than the old).
