We went to the city of Turlock, California this past Sunday for a car swap meet and flea market. There are always goodies, collectibles, to hunt for...treasures among the thousands of vintage auto parts and vintage cars for sale. People come from all over the world for this event, even New Zealand and Australia. We must have walked for five hours slowly looking for treasures. It is a huge yearly event. We also went shopping in the town to a few antique stores where I found some lovely treasures.
|I FOUND THIS SWEET WIRE BIRDCAGE IN ONE OF THE ANTIQUE STORES. THE ENTIRE TOP PART OF THE ROOF HINGES TO OPEN.|
|THERE ARE ALWAYS A COUPLE OF GALS WHO HAVE VINTAGE LACES IN THEIR BOOTHS IN ONE ANTIQUE MALL. SO I HAD FUN GATHERING GROUPINGS OF LACES. I ESPECIALLY LIKE THE PINK LACE AS COLORED LACES ARE NOT ALWAYS EASY TO FIND.|
|MORE SWEET FINDS...SOME ROUND WOODEN BEADS IN LOVELY SIZES TO BE USED AS ARM AND LEG JOININGS FOR HANDMADE PAPER CLAY DOLLS. ALSO SOME TINY WOODEN ALPHABET GOODIES FOR MIXED MEDIA COLLAGES.|
Ta! Ta! For now!
