October Finds

The weather today was amazing and we knew the local Flea Market would be hopping. So we cruised over and enjoyed an afternoon of junking and hunting. Lots of great finds and I wanted to share a few of my favorites. Halloween is days away................. yippeeee!

Lots of great findings in this box. Awesome stuff to add details to my dolls, doll hats and mixed media pieces.

Soooo UGLY, it was love at first site!

This leather suitcase is awesome! It's in great shape and a steal at ten bucks! I love to use suitcases for display at shows. My dolls really look great sitting in them and they double as a way to pack and get them there too. I plan to get to more shows in 2011. If anyone has suggestions of shows you think I might be a good fit for, please let me know. I fell in love with the wooden caddy too. Good piece of folk art with the handle fashioned out of a crochet mallet. I just love old stuff. It has so much character - I wish I knew the history behind some of what I find. Where it's been, how many lives it's interacted with, etc. Some stuff holds so much energy, oh the stories it could tell. Well, I'm off - happy hunting and haunting to all.


  1. 10 bucks? you have got to be kidding? it is gorgeous, and what a bargain! you can't get anything like that here for less than 70 bucks!!!
    The doll is creepy I have to say :O)
    I love flea markets - could spend every day at them!

  2. Oh! I love the ugly baby! Of course you knew I would!
