My New Favorite Shops

Hi friends,

Before the hurricane hit I discovered a few great places to shop...on-line. I found a place called http//www.keepandshare.com/doc/view.php?u=798234. Also known as Friday Flea Market; there are 65 shops total. Now, who doesn't love shopping? Who doesn't love a good flea market? So early one morning I was browsing around and found http://polkadotrose.net/ Karla & Kristi.....oh what a fabulous blog they share and their flea market finds are TOP NOTCH. Now, I can't believe I'm actually going to share my shopping secret with ya'll but these little treasures where too sweet to pass up.

Look at this sweet hot rolls basket liner....I do love embroidery. :)

Next I found this vintage lipstick holder, note the turquoise jewels on here....ooh la la....this is soooo me. :)

It's just perfect on my antique dresser, don't you think? :)

This oval mirror was another find.....I have two rectangle vanity mirrors but this unique oval shape, stole my heart. :) Karla also sent a cute little candle, with candy and an adorable plate. It's sitting on my desk. Thank you KARLA....you are too sweet. :)

Next, I found Stephanie at http://angelicaccentsalacarte.blogspot.com/

I loved the vintage hairspray can cover, see the little turquoise jewels? Very similar to the lipstick holder I just purchased.

Don't they look great together?

I quickly e-mailed Stephanie. I was in luck, it was still available and when it arrived I was thrilled. :) Imagine finding matching pieces on line....one seller in California and the other seller in Texas. They both also accepted money orders, I really liked that. :)

Then I saw this.....

When it arrived it was prettier than I imagined. It's absolutely GORGEOUS! I already had this glass cloche ( is that what they're called? ) and WHALA~ a fabulous cookie dish. She also sent me 2 beautiful Thomas Kincade postcards. I love them and have put them on my special memory board. Thank you STEPHANIE, you are a doll. :) You should stop by her blog, her tablescapes are amazing.

If you get a chance please stop by & visit the flea market ( but wait until at least 8:00a.m.....lol. )J/K. You should shop early. :) If you love vintage, shabby & craft items....china, quilts & mirrors this is where you should be every Friday morning and the sellers are the sweetest people you will ever meet. :) Have fun!!

Hugs~ J.

Hey Jessica! Girl, I just love all your finds. That little embroidered cloth is precious and I love all of the vanity items too. So unique...and the blue and white plate too. It's all so down my alley! LOL! I know you were thrilled when these pretties arrived. I will have to check out these sites....I have never heard of them. I love flea markets and My husband and I really do sell at a flea market near our area 60 miles away. We try to go about 3 times a year and we love it and do well with it. It's just one of our side things that we do, really a hobby. I sure would be interested in finding a way to sell our treasures online. I do sell from time to time on ebay when I can part with them LOL, I have made money and lost money selling on ebay before...so it's not always a sure thing. Well, thanks for sharing your finds and the info.
I know that you have been on a heavy workload since hurricane ike especially,...but thanks for taking the time to stop by and for all that you said. You are a doll! I hope you have a great week!

Hi Jessica! How very kind of you to picture your pretties in their new home!! They are all lovely. It is just serendipitous that you found my hairspray cover on my selling blog & the matching lipstick holder on another, too!!

BTW, those cookies are sure making me hungry!!

You are such a doll & a very treasured customer & friend!!
