I made an impromptu stop at a local flea market today and ended up leaving with (literally) armfuls of stuff. Today's haul included some ceramics from the fifties and sixties, some Pyrex bowls (always my favorite find), character glasses from the 70s and 80s, as well as some other odds & ends. The downside of this particular flea market is that you are literally ferreting around through boxes and piles of dirty things to find your treasures (I spent an hour soaking and cleaning all of this stuff when I got home). Of course, the upside is the price... all of this was $23! Here are some close up shots:
Just like every other male in his thirites, I desperately needed this butterscotch colored glass "granny" candy dish. The Star Wars and Super Mario Brothers glasses are rocking my world and the Big Mac candy tin makes me smile every time I look at it!
