My day at the flea market

  On Saturday, my friend, Allison & I made a trip to the semi-annual flea market here in Saskatoon. Allison is an amazing photographer & she was looking for props for her photo shoots. I was looking for some vintage-y type things. I had a vintage globe, map, & suitcase on my wish list. My son, Parker, also asked me to look for some cowboy stuff for him. Off we went!

We wen't sure what to expect, but we weren't disappointed. 
Goodies were everywhere! 

Pretty dishes

Purses, hats, & gloves

Fun owl finds

Tin signs

Snow Shoes

lanterns

Scales

Tins

How cute is this little baby buggy? 

This was awesome.

Lots of Soda Pop products

Old radios

Cameras

This lovely old piece was calling to me

Not sure what this is, but it's tiered drawers were filled with little compartments. 

Old school clock

Pretty hats & sewing notions

This lady's booth was my favourite - so feminine!

Aren't those bags beautiful?

The suitcases we bought

 We found a booth selling only vintage fur coats for amazingly low prices. We each bought a persian lamb coat. 
Just for a vintage diva look. :)

Bringing home our goodies!


Here's what I came home with:
Toy guns for my son - $8
Persian Lamb fur coat - $10
Suitcase - $15

It was so much fun. I'll definitely be going back in February.

Enjoy your day!
