Flea Market Friday ... a new blog party at Lemoncholy's

Happy Friday! Today I want to introduce you to a new blog party my friend Kecia ... of Lemoncholy's flight of fancy ... has begun hosting ... "Flea Market Friday"  It's very simple to play along, simply link up and share some photos of your recent flea market, thrift store, garage sale {you get the idea} finds you were lucky enough to come across.

I have been selling more lately at the Barn Market ... way more than I have been shopping ... good thing, I need some sort of income to fuel my junkin' addiction!

Below are my latest buys ...

an antique embroidered sampler ... perfectly aged and distressed .... perfectly priced ... $5

A French book for photo props or using the pages for altered art creations ... $1

And third ... a gorgeous old rosary with red glass beads and lovely findings ... prices on rosaries have sky rocketed here in my area .... I believe I paid $25 for this one ... Not too long ago, I used to be able to pick them up for a few dollars, not anymore. {sigh} Those were the days.

Will you be getting out to treasure hunt this weekend? I am ... The Man has generously volunteered our home Saturday morning for community theatre play practice ... I need somewhere to escape and we all know what goes on Saturday mornings .... Garage Sales here I come !!

Have a great weekend and please checkout Kecia's new party.

  12. 25.00 for a glass rosary is a good price nowadays...I bet you will make some pretty jewelry pieces out of it too.
