Flea Market Finds

This week Mr H and I wandered over to Noble Park and visited three op shops within a 10 shop radius of each other. A great hit rate but not good op shopping by any stretch of the imagination. Perhaps I’m just expecting too much?

The best thing I managed to find was a gorgeous vintage sheet. My collection is growing by leaps and bounds and this is the prettiest so far. The sheet alone is giving me hope that I'll be able to make a vintage sheet quilt.


Perhaps I might even be able to go participate in a vintage sheet swap ... when I get a few better sheets.

How was your flea market week ... check out Her Library Adventures for other fabulous flea market finds.

I love vintage sheets, but I must say they are becoming harder to find. Have a lovely week and I look forward to seeing your vintage sheet quilt when it is done. xo

i always see people find these gorgeous sheets yet I can't seem to spot any in oppies, maybe I need to change locations or maybe I am just too focused on suitcases & glass bottles :)
gorgeous Susan, hope you have fun creating something from them.

You've got some lovely sheets there. I keep trying to find nice ones but there only seems to be the real cheap horrible ones where I live. Look forward to seeing what you end up making out of them.
