Flea Market Finds

A few of my recent flea market finds~

I always love a good canning jar, right ...
but these are a brand new kind for me.

 Look at these unique lids!

 James said he'd seen these type of jars before, but I never have.

So, yes ... at $2 each, these 2 pretty little thangs found there way into my cart.
I can just imagine them filled with the layers of cookie ingredients ...
ya know, the sugars - brown & white, the flour, the chocolate chips, etc.
Wouldn't that be so pretty in these jars?
I thought they'd make great gifts.

I also picked up this lovely basket.
I don't use a lot of blue, but I do have it in the loft in our beachy South Carolina room.
I'm not exactly sure what I'll do with it, but for $6.99, it had to come home with me.
Oops...forgot to take of the price tag.

I see lots of projects using old vintage photos, but I've never had any to use.
This page of photos was $1.29.
Aren't the little kid ones are adorable?
Just always makes me sad when I see someone's family photos being sold at the flea market.

Not too bad for a quick stop at my favorite flea market.

Happy Thursday, y'all~

  2. I was happy with all my 'treasures' ... that's part of the fun at the flea market. Never know what you're ganna find. Thanks Linda & Diann!

  3. I'm a fan of canning jars. These are quite unique, yes. I don't think I've ever seen any like them.

    1. I think I may do some follow-up & see what I can find out about them. Thanks for stopping by, Dayle.

  4. Those jars are wonderful. Now I am going to be looking for some. Great finds!

  5. Why, thank you! I hope you find some too!

  6. My mom had some of those canning jars when I was little. I use to play with the lids and call them windows in my doll houses I made. Great find and the basket and old pictures are wonderful too. Thanks tons for joining Inspire Me. Hugs, Marty

  7. Aw, Marty .. what a sweet memory! I am pretty happy I found these jars. So unique.

  8. I'm with you when it comes to seeing family photographs for sale at flea markets ... that is why I have a cedar chest filled with them! Somebody who comes after me can toss them out! Great post. Thanks for sharing.

  9. Bless your heart! You are definitely the rescuer of old photos! Thanks so much for your comment.

  10. Angela I wanted to let you know you were one of my featured picks this week for Thrifty Things Friday. Stop by my blog to get your I was featured button if you wish!


  11. Never seen these lids before either! they look great Angela! love all your finds and that basket looks really nice! I would love it in my basement for storage; what a great price too! Ingrid

  12. Great finds, thanks for linking up.

  13. Good Morning Angela, I love old photographs and old books.... but I have to agree as far as the photographs are concerned, I always wonder who these people were in the photographs and how they lived their lives, but they have found a nice new home with you. I love how dapper the boys look in their outfits.
    The blue and white basket is a lovely find as it will be so useful in the summer. The first time I came across Mason jars was when we visited Atlanta, we went to a friends home and they gave us a cold drink out of a jar..... being English this felt very strange, but they then explained to us why it was traditional to drink out of Mason jars.
    It is lovely to meet you Angela, and I have become a new follower.
    I would like to invite you to visit me at Ivy, Phyllis and Me! when you have the time as it will be lovely to see you there.
    Best Wishes to you,

  14. Daphne, so good to have you ... all the way from England?! I'd say drinking from the Mason jar did feel a bit odd ;) I have one son who likes to do that on occasion. I am so glad you stopped by & took the time to introduce yourself {& for being a new follower}. I will definitely be over to visit. Blessings~
