Flea market finds

So this past Sunday, some of us from The Chicagoland Craft Collective got together at the Kane County Flea Market to do a little shopping for ideas and stuff :)

~love~ the colors of these blocks

















Groovy glasses
















Fun phones















We agreed that clowns are scary, but this one was kind of cute :)























Sarah bought this cutie























I got this cool toy box to put all of my fabric in
















How fun are these going to be to scrap with?! I got a ginormous bag with about 50 of them in it, it was every valentine received in 1950 & 1951 by a boy named Charles


















Another purchase, some fab old playing cards with dogs on them, how cool is the one with the scarecrow?



















Mmmmmmm....coffee cake!























I could go on and on...obviously we had a great time and much money was spent :)
