...to miniature pot-bellied pigs (also known as "tea-cup" pigs)? This little girl was getting quite a bit of attention from curious passersby.
One of the dealers had an interesting assortment of antique sewing accessories, including this charming thread box. I was tempted to buy it but couldn't justify the expensive given its condition.
I also loved the artwork in the lid of this thread tin but the price wasn't in my budget.
I thought this vintage toy sewing machine was cute in mint green but it was missing its carrying case. So I passed on it but will keep my eyes peeled for one in the future.
One of the dealers had a fun booth filled with 1950s and 1960s vintage fabrics and accessories. Fabric packs were arranged sweetly in vintage suitcases. I bought the small aqua-striped suitcase on the left for $2.50. I wasn't sure if this was a lady's or child's carrying case, so I'd be glad to find out if anyone knows the answer.
Also, couldn't resist buying this vintage barkcloth from her as it was only $5 total for a few yards. I plan to use it for my pincushion orders. I found out she has a shop, too, so I plan to head over there in the near future.
And how cute is this little vintage pincushion—another fun find from the flea market. It was in pristine condition considering its age and it came with the original box.
One of my favorite finds of the day was this antique paper-covered doll trunk. It can be challenging to find them with their paper-covered trays still intact. The blue and brown floral paper in this trunk really spoke to me.
I am a sucker for vintage children's furniture and noticed this one in a dealer's booth but didn't buy it. I have a small collection of little cupboards from flea markets past.
I know a lot of crafters love to use antique skeleton keys for their creative projects. This dealer had a wonderful array of them and they were selling like hotcakes. Three people bought some while I was perusing his booth!
As you can see, it was a very fun day at the flea market. Come back later this week for a post about something fun that my parents-in-law found for me at the flea market.
