Flea Market Finds

For a long time I've been following great flea market finds at Her Library Adventures. And this week I've decided to play along.
Today we had a big market in the area and we went there to buy some fish. But besides the fish I also brought home some nice finds from local flea market.

I couldn't resist this birdie candle holder. It was so sad and covered with a layer of dust on a corner shelf... So, I decided to take it home, and after small bathing it shines like a new! ;)


Second picture is taken in direct sunlight. Check out that sparkle! ;)


I also found my next bead embroidery victim. It's a small leather purse. I don't actually know its age, but the condition is pretty good. I just need to redo the strap and add some decorative elements.



To see what other lovely ladies have found this week, please, visit Sophie.

Have a great Sunday!

I fell in love with those birdies the moment I saw them. And now they live in my house. :)

Awww those birds are cute. The bag was a great find too... was it a bargain? I can't wait to see what you do with it.

I paid a bit over 6 USD for both, so it was a bargain considering that the prices in local flea markets are quite high (if we compare to another countries) and it's really hard to find something nice. I'm very happy with my purchases. And I already have an idea what to do with the bag. ;)

The birds are really great - unique design I think. I can't wait to see how you refurbish the purse - keep us posted!
