I'm back from holidays and it's back to all things normal now - back to the old routine. I wouldn't mind at all to still be on Prince Edward Island - walking the beach for seaglass - oh, well, I'll be back next year!!! I didn't even read a blog post the whole time I was away, Instagram was pretty well all I paid attention to in the cyberworld, because I like it so much!!
We timed our trip for Eastern Canada's largest flea market with up to 900 vendors and 1,000 tables - it all takes place in Sussex, New Brunswick, we had been there years and years ago but it has surely grown since then. We walked around for a couple of hours, Gary picked this Santa up right away for $2, then he had to carry that around for the rest of the time.
He was starting to feel bad for me because there was just nothing I saw that I wanted to buy - we were ready to leave and went down one more row - there was a big Pyrex display -there were a lot of pieces, but at this stage of my collection, I don't need much but I've been wanting these for ages - I bought them both for $25.
My lucky day- Golden Poinsetta which was a holiday promotional in 1961. Neither one had lids but that didn't matter to me.
The Holiday casserole has a few scratches on it but that didn't stop me - I have never seen these pieces before for a price I could afford, I'm so happy to find them. The flea market was worth it, after all.
I found a little pink elephant glass too for 25 cents!!
We were out touring one day on Prince Edward Island, there is one area that has four or five antique shops, most of it way too expensive for me. But, I managed to get something.
These Made in Japan pixies were marked at $3 each, I got up to the cash and noticed the guy on the left was missing part of his ear - they were mine for $3 total. They're so cute!!
These are just perfect - they look like something from Japan as well - $2.
Another Christmas book for those future grandchildren.
Of course, there were Vera's - at one thrift I found four and that day they were half off - I love that place!!!
I brought a few things back from the PEI house too - I'll share those in another post.
