Opening Day of Flea Market Season: SCORE!!!

A good friend and I woke up at an ungodly hour this past Saturday morning to go, not the animal kind. But the thrill of the chase/capture is just as real, I dare say. What other motivation, would I have to drag myself out of bed after only 5 hours sleep? I definitely scored big, though. Considering, I had no idea what I was looking for when I started out, I managed to bring home quite a bit of useful & fabulous stuff - all for around $40! And it's just the beginning of the season!!!

Large blue glass "Ball" jar (hard to find) - perfect for flowers. $5.95

Milk glass and Monterey serving bowls. I'm having a bridal shower at my house this weekend, so they'll really come in handy. $1, $3.50, $8.25 (front to back)

Luxurious, twin-sized, creamy throw. $8.99

Throw texture.

Large white enamel stock pot, $9.95

I've already put it to good use.

Jade glass sacuer = soap dish. I love the subtle swirls throughout the glass. $2

Letter press blocks, which spell my name (backwards of course). This really is the coolest find ever! $.50
