Flea Market Finds

I love Flea Market Finds ... check out more flea market treasures over at Sophie Isobel's blog Her Library Adventures.

I’ve had a great few days for op shopping but I’ve really concentrated on looking for knitting patterns I like … I’ve almost given up looking for clothes because I never seem to find anything I like. Vintage stores are so much better for finding clothes.

But I don’t want to spoil my Friday knitting pattern fun so I’m going to show something I would never normally pick up … sheet music.

Isn't this cover amazing? It's dated 1913 and in absolutely perfect condition.

I found a great stash of half a dozen exactly like this one stored together with some knitting patterns from the 1940s. They look as though they belonged to a music teacher ... they're all associated with piano exams.

You just never know what you’ll find if you look hard enough.

oh wow that's fantastic! i love stuff like that. a while ago i found some old examination papers from a local school, the comments in the old-fashioned writing were great

How lovely, I'd love to see the 40's knitting patterns, I have a little collection of them myself.

I look forward to seeing more of you around in the flea market finds!
