Up at the crack of dawn....

My friend Sue and I met up this morning to go to the Sandwich Flea Market which opened at 6:30 am!

Getting up that early to go on our treasure hunt reminded me of when I was young and sleeping over my sisters to go out very early on a weekend morning to go to yard sales...
You get there bright and early while all the good stuff is still there and by 9:30 am you feel like you have already had a productive day!  : )

Sue filled up her car with lots of furniture to refinish while I poked around seeing what struck my fancy...




 I stumbled upon a toy (plastic) featherweight which is battery operated and is working condition.  It has a little matching sewing box.


I had a beloved table refinished years ago, but it came back to me without the wheels on the legs.
I was so happy to find this interesting Gilette box with my lost wheels.
: )

I also stumbled upon 2 small gifts for the family....one for a poet/teacher who uses an old typewriter : )
and one is a music lover that loves to listen to '78's.
A cute collectable pencil sharpener....
A take on the RCA dog....a piggy bank that could second as a doorstop.

It was a great way to start the day with breakfast at Marshlands to top it off!

  1. Beth,
    Looks like you found some really cool treasures and had a fun day! I see you have a new banner photo, is there a story there? Went back thru the posts I've missed, hope the job thing is working out one way or another!
