Thanksgiving Weekend Flea Market

Mom and I attended a flea market at the state fairgrounds on Thanksgiving weekend.  We weren't able to hit it Black Friday, like last year, but instead went on Saturday.  I didn't think we'd find much, but we were still able to score quite a bit.  I couldn't believe these 2 pickle jars were still there.  One missing the lid and one missing the handle.

Then I spied these old kitchen canister jars.  The lids on them were a perfect fit for the pickle jar too.  So one was transferred to the pickle jar.

Have you ever seen a Siesta Ware cookie jar?  And, it was still in the box!

A carnival glass "Egg Nog" set still in the box!

Some vintage Christmas, including a large Santa Gurley candle still in the box.

A little late on these holidays, but I couldn't resist my first Gurley Halloween candle and the turkey S&Ps.

Some more vintage Christmas and a vintage Valentine appropriate for multiple holidays.  I thought the vintage baking stuff would fit a holiday display nicely.

More vintage Christmas and 4 Made in England biscuit molds.

So many porcelain buttons.  They have been sorted into baggies and will hopefully find new homes.

This guy was sad looking with this detached limbs, so I rescued him.

Advertising thimbles and various other little items.

There are 7 red stripe Hazel Atlas plates here.  I thought they were perfect for Christmas or Valentine's Day.

This extra large feed sack was in excellent condition.

I bought the last of the pennants one of the dealers had.  Apparently he had hundreds more the day before.  Darn it!

My prize find of the day: the aluminum wall/door tree.  Isn't it super cute?

Now, I totally forgot about these finds from October.  There wasn't anything major to post about, so I've been saving them for you... 

This purple stained glass window will be staying with me.
It was only $10.  Can you believe it??

Odds and ends found while yard sale-ing.  I found 2 of the windows in the bottom right of the picture.

Picked up some some random boxes of crafting stuff from a yard sale.  A lot of it was donated, but I found these treasures and I'll be saving the rest for future projects.

A friendly reminder that our Holiday Open House is coming up.  All the goodies you see pictured here will be available... plus many others!

  1. Great stuff. I especially like the vintage Santa and Christmas stuff. Hope to see you at Snickerdoodle this weekend.

  2. Melissa, you always find the best stuff! I love all of it!

  3. My very best favorite was the Hazel Atlas S&P set. Never seen the base. My white one was my mother's "cooking" salt shaker. I have accumulated a black one (pepper) and a red one (cinnamon). The tops are cracking, unfortunately. Drop me a line if you don't already know the easy way to connect the doll's arms and legs with elastics and a crochet hook. The doll picks made me smile. In '73, my maid of honor made bridesmaids cakes, frosting a dress bodice onto the doll, using the equivalent of a Pyrex Cinderella bowl to bake a cake in for the doll's skirt! Doll's hair color matched the bridesmaid's; those were the days!

  4. Fun stuff. I love/hate shopping this time of year. It all gets muddled together....inventory, home decor.....

  5. Great finds, Melissa! Thanks for sharing at Vintage Charm!
