Flea Market Flights of Fancy
Memorial day weekend, we went to a flea market in the tiny historic town of El Dorado.
It was a gorgeous sunday with spring blooms in full blossom everywhere...
..and treasures galore. We got this beaded belt buckle for a late birthday present for Art.
Personally, I am a sucker for antique photographs...
and also, I'm determined to bring the bonnet back into fashion.
(Darin isn't so sure it's going to work...)
Darin was pretty stoked on some old sci-fi books.
There was the cutest little country-western band with a 93 year old lady playing mandolin.
And as the day grew warmer, a strawberry/raspberry sno-cone was the perfect treat!
It was a good little jaunt away from the neighborhood so I could try to get my mind off my missing cat for a while. (it's still breaking my heart...)
I wore my newly hemmed dress from an Etsy shop called Mr. Idaho's Vintage which is chock-full of my favorite kinds of 70's dresses for insanely great prices.
Here are some of the things I picked up:
a scrapbook started in 1967 filled up with delightful vintage cards and ephemera and offering a mysterious glimpse into the world of a little girl named Kim Major.
some rad boots:
and Portugal kitchen linens: (darin's portuguese and i like the bright colors)
I got a few more clothing items but I'll save those for other posts!
And now it is June...and I am wishing you sublime summer days.
