Thrifting Thursday

September 4, 2008 at 8:41 am 4 comments

There is one place that I really (really) love to go thrifting at and it’s the Dover Flea Market.  The first time I went there, I literally spent hours looking around at everything.  Now, I know just which vendors to hit up for the goods and I’m always happy when I come home (especially after making my way to the $0.25 table).

 

A pillowcase that I’m going to save (and collect some more) so I can make each girl a quilt out of pillowcases.  Have you seen the few that are rolling around on the web?  Beautiful I tell ya!  The photo below it are some of the goodies I picked up at the $0.25 table.  The coffee mug and the Pfaltzgraff glasses where from the table and the tin tray was from another table, and the salt and pepper shakers James picked up. (Love them, or love him because he understands my thrifting and love for things that are old?)

     

A cute little butterfly trivet, a little Singer tin canister, and a mason jar full of old buttons.  The photo on the far right are my favorite ones from the mason jar.

But my favorite vendor to visit when I go always has a bunch of old linens, handmade vintage embroidery goodies, tons of vintage jewelry and all at a very reasonable price I might add.

   

The one on the left was left unfinished so I think I might finish it up (for whoever made it), the photo in the middle is my favorite one (a nice long table runner that now sits happily on my sewing table) and the photo on the right are ones I picked up for the girls, L.’s of course being the purple one and little pink embroidered flowers to make K. happy.  They love using them as blankets for the little dolls, tea parties, and occasionally as a tissue (seriously).

    Lovel linens–and finding a button jar is always a thrill!

    Thank you! Trust me, I was shocked when I found the jar of buttons, I never find buttons.

    I’m kinda envious! all those good finds! you just can’t find stuff like that around here without going to the antique stores…. The pillow case quilt sounds adorable!

    Oh trust me, there was an antique store James and I went to that day but everything was waaaay out of our price range. ($50 for a salt and pepper shaker, i about fainted).
