Flea Market Treasures

Elmvale, Ontario is a small town that draws a big crowd for it’s weekly Thursday Flea Market. We like to make a visit while on vacation, since it is quite close to our Wymbolwood Beach. So, yesterday was a beautiful sunny day that was perfect for treasure hunting. I found some pretty cool things — are you ready to see?

This is crocheted with a fine crochet thread and I think it is just awesome — it begged me to take it home with me — so what else could I do?

From the same lady that made the crochet piece above I bought this bag of lefover crochet thread. I have been wanting to try making a doily or doll blanket and now I have some thread to experiment with.

I don’t wear jewelery so I am going to find a way to display this. I love the colors and the intricacy in the design.

This is an older book of crochet blanket patterns. There are a few that caught my eye — but even if  I don’t use  the patterns, the pictures are pretty to look at. Here are three that I really like.

Now for the most funky of my treasures — isn’t this bag just the greatest?

That’s it for my new treasures — but I have two more pictures to show you.

This clown was on one of the buildings giving a cheery atmosphere to the place.

These flowers greeted us as we drove in.

WARNING –I also spotted some dinosaurs at the Elmvale Flea Market — so be on the lookout for when they show up here : )
