In my last post I introduced you to a lovely pink wicker and satin glass vanity set that I bought and decided to sell because I don't have a good place for it in my home. Ah, to have a bathroom with decent counter space...but I digress. Today I went to the Dulles Expo Center, about 25 minutes away from my house, to the 1100 dealer Big Flea in Chantilly, VA.
Here's a bit of the first bldg.
I visited several of my favorite dealers, but I had to take a picture of part of the HUGE head vase collection in the booth run by Violet and John Pammer of Allentown, PA.
Aren't they lovely? I don't collect these, but I certainly appreciate the demur vintage quality of these pretty ladies!
I was immediately attracted to this display of vintage seed packets in a booth just brimming with the most wonderful advertising displays.
He was selling them for $1.50 each, but I couldn't think on my feet what to do with them, so I passed for now.
I did stop at this wonderful bin of vintage jewelry, and dug through it carefully avoiding being stabbed by the pins, and found a few pieces.
I stopped at this booth with it's high up display of vintage flamingo ceramics.
And I love paint-by-number and Japanese paper lanterns!
Here's another building of the two that host the Big Flea!
In case your were curious, here is my haul. Lot's of fabric, buttons, and costume jewelry to use in my creations. A few figurines, two wonderful hats with loads of flowers, and a wonderful pink and black plaid tin suitcase to store some of my odds n' ends!
Thanks for taking stopping by! Time to go make some things! Hope your weekend is wonderful too! XXOO, Beth
