This is my favorite treasure, a silver plate samovar with Ivory handle and feet.  No lid but Ill put pink tulips in for V Day.
I tried to find small stuff that I could use for Valentines Day decorations.
A rolling Dr.s tray holds some more finds. Anybody know what time it is?
A bird bath that needs a bath itself.
Wont this be darling all dressed up for Valentines Day?

So guys this is all from the Swap Meet that we will be going to when Sue arrives later this month. I know this is one of her favorites. She should have quite an entourage by the time we get there, all her friends from the Central Coast will be there to welcome her. I had a really good time today and got some lovely stuff just in time to decorate for V. Day. The weather was fine and the treasures were plenty, and I came home with $2 left in my pocket! That's what I call a successful morning at the Swap Meet!

How does one go about starting flea markets? I know we have some great places to host them, it's just I wouldn't know where to start! Any ideas?!

I'm in the Washington, D.C. metro area - close to Baltimore and Annapolis.

You got some great items! Thanks for sharing!

We have this one flea market that has all these shed like buildings and if you don't mind walking in the slush and ice to each building you can sometimes find that diamond in the rough. Some people warm up their buildings/sheds and offer hot beverages so it is nice to browse and chat. But otherwise, here we have to wait until Spring for the outdoor markets.

Good job with the treasures. Posted: 10:09 pm on February 1st
