One of the things that I was most excited to see, was the booth from Mena at Sew Weekly. Alas, she was under the weather so was unable to make her debut performance there. We kept on with the journey and made it to the flea market just in time for its opening on Sunday.
It was a quiet morning so I didn't feel rushed as I perused the various vendors. There were some fun antiques and a lot of vintage clothing, but I was more interested in hand-crafted goods, fabrics and patterns. The flea market didn't disappoint and I left with some new items, and discovered a few fun vendors.
The first vendor that we found was The Sparrow's Nest. She had some whimsical stamped items such as clothespins, stationary and tin items. She also had resin floral hair clips (which I've been obsessed with recently) and vintage buttons that she made into hair accessories.

Her booth had beautiful items and displays - which was actually how her clothespins became popular. She said they originally had used them in their displays but had so much interest from people that they made enough to start selling them.

As we were leaving the flea market, one more vendor had me poring through her tables - La Maison Violette. She had various vintage and reproduction fabrics and linens. I picked up a little over a yard of fabric - which will hopefully become a cute blouse.

It was a good day and a nice start to my flea market season. I'm a little late to flea marketing this year... I've been unmotivated to wake up early on a weekend and make the trek out to our local markets, even though there can be so many good deals. This was a good kick to get me going. Now if I can just convince the hubby to come with me...
