Flea File – January

February 1st, 2011 · 1 Comment · Shop Dublin, Shop Thrift, Shop Vintage

We bundled up the baby on Sunday and headed out to a packed Dublin Flea where we found some real gems.

We were married and lived in Boston for several years, so Make Way for Ducklings was a very special find (it’s about a group of wayward ducklings in Boston and there are statues of the little birds in Boston Common). The other book, Corduroy was one of my childhood favorites! Both books are in excellent condition.

I have wanted kitchen scales since we got married and I inherited all of the hubby’s metric recipe books. They always seem way too expensive or not right for our kitchen. These were perfect! The right color, the right size and in perfect working condition. To the owner, they have gone to a good home and will be used to bake this week!

Black and white vintage frocks for spring. Both are cute with DIY potential. The black dress could use a little embellishing and sprucing up, maybe a shorter hem. The white dress doesn’t quite fit (but it will!) and has a hole that needs mending, but it is my new project. It is going to look amazing with my gold obi belt and leopard heels.
