flea market finds


Recommended Posts

well, as usual, on Wednesday I went to the auction/flea market near my house. I was relieved to see that there was alot more stuff there this week than in the past few weeks. I also found alot of good stuff FOR FREE

(if someone buys a 'loy' and they do not want something in it, they tend to just leave it in the field. Or, if something does not sell, it just gets left and they auction the next item off. This is a GREAT way to find cool stuff, just go to the place after they do some auctioning and pick through all the stuff that's left in the field. I have found Barbie dolls from the 60's, pretty vintage dishes, chairs, tables, all sorts of cool junk. . .)

But I digress- I actually DID have to pay for my dollhouse goodies, but it was only one dollar and I got 3 bags of stuff. Some of it is plastic, so I don't know what to do with it, but among the better stuff there was a piano, a bed, a small bench and stool, a broken sewing machine, and a grandfather clock, and some sort of gambling table. . .I have no use for that, at least not in the near future.

If anyone has a use for the plastic stuff I mentioned, some it looks like it goes to the tin Marx dollhouses, let me know.

Wow you did get lucky. What great finds! The game table is a 'Craps' table - the casino game that you use dice for (you see it a lot in films like James Bond). It would be fun to a little casino room box.
