We have a great flea market here every third weekend of the month.  My Sis and I went today and found pretty good bargins.  Lots of lace and old fabric for $1.00 each, vintage photos for .75 each and some old tart tins for  .25 each.  I also got some old spoons and forks and a pretty rhinestone key pin.

I made these pins from old doilies, and vintage photos.  I think these would look nice pinned on a jacket or a bag.    I have decided to try an Etsy shop and I am going to put these in it.  I am almost have it set up.  I am not sure about the shipping costs so have to decide on that first.

Have a great Sunday.

Hugs, Jackie
