Flea Market Find of the Year

This week Sophie of Her Library Adventures asked all of us to show the best finds of this year. There is even a competition going, so you can vote for your favorite find. It's a tough choice, as all of them are really great!

I've found many nice things this year and it's really hard to pick just one, so here are my top three finds of the year.

Vintage mink stole. So soft and luxurious that when I wear it I just don't want to take it off. I think I could even sleep in it. :)
The mannequin that we call Margaret was also a great find of this year.


Second great find I picked up this week. It's wooden candle holder in beautiful red brown color. It's nice and tall and it cost me ridiculous 1.5 eur (~2 usd). Great deal, isn't it?


And the third thing that I love and treasure is this beautiful brown suitcase. I use it for carrying my jewelry, when I visit my wonderful customers.


To see other amazing finds and vote for your favorite, visit Sophie.

Wishing you a great week and successful flea market shopping! ;)

Wow that stole does look rather cosy! You always seem to find the most interesting pieces and the coolest prices! I guess you just have to know where to look... makes me want to visit some flea markets. Unfortunately a lot of ours just sell a lot of junk.

Thank you, ladies!

Karyn, our local flea markets look like dumpsters, you can't imagine the amount of junk I need to go though before I find these beauties! Usually they are lying in the darkest corner under layer of dust. That candle holder looked horrible, when I took it home. I though I'm gonna paint it, but while washing it I discovered the most gorgeous red-brown color, which goes perfectly with our living-room.
Good luck treasure hunting! ;)

Can you believe I was given a mink stole when my first child was a baby? It was so soft and I had no cause to ever wear it so I put it in her cot and she slept on it. Not sure what the baby police would say about that now but I think if you wanna sleep in yours, go right ahead!
