Flea Market Finds >> 20

Before jumping into this week's finds, I wanted to let you all know that my Retro Modern Quilt has been nominated Best Applique Quilt and Best ROYGBIV Quilt in the Bloggers Quilt Festival! Please hope over here to vote for my quilt. Thanks so much! 

On to this week's finds: 

What can I say? I love drinking glasses! It's one of my favorite items to purchase. While there were only three I couldn't leave them behind! Orange and starburst together? Too good to be true. :) I have this measuring glass in red that I use in my kitchen. 

Pastel Measuring spoons... one to keep and one to sell! 

Remember having stationery sets like these? Write on the back side of the paper, fold it up, and then send it! So easy! I like that these may need to make a come back! 

I love Christmas and all of the decorations! Many sales have a whole Christmas room! Sometimes I dig through and don't find anything, but this time I couldn't leave without one Christmas tablecloth. There were many but this Poinsettia was in perfect condition and the price was right! 

Textiles are such a fun treasure to shift through, while many people are fighting there way through the sale, you can find me in the bedroom looking through many textiles. I don't find many that I like, but this one is just perfect. The shapes look like mid-century homes to me . I plan on using this to make a pair of pillows. 

I can never leave without one sheet set! I couldn't resist these stripes! 

Happy Thrifting!

Love all of your finds. Those glasses are fun. The measuring spoons are wonderful, even though I normal don't go toward pastels, those would be great to use. The textiles are fabulous. I normally am looking for aprons.
