My Recent Flea Market Finds

I hit up my local flea market recently and managed to leave with some serious bargains in toe! First up was this old sheet featuring gelato hued stripes - the moment I saw this I knew it was perfect for Mr. Bazaar's place! Next I rummaged around and found this pharmaceutical bottle, which is from Savory & Moore on Broad St. London, est. 1855. It might be really dirty, but there was something special about it and for less than a few pounds it was a steal. A few brightly-hued cottons also made their way into my loot, but the show stealer was this vintage map of New York City's transit system. The detail on this map is insane, I've already spent hours pouring my eyes over all the different lines and districts. Now I just need to decide where to hang it! Have you picked up anything fun at a flea recently?

  13. Awesome finds, Will. I love the little glass medicine bottle, there are so many possibilities with that.

    I found 2 vintage glass jelly moulds at the Car Boot Sale this weekend, to add to my growing collection.

    It was a small haul this week.
