Flea Market Find

Last weekend we attended our local Boot Sale. It's always a fantastic opportunity to find a bargain or two...or three! I was not disappointed. I found this gorgeous make-up case filled to the brim with kids toys. I explained to the stall owner that it wasn't the toys I was particularly fond of but the wonderful case they were in. He sold it to me for $2. 

I now use it to keep my ribbons and twine in. I have plans to add some scissors and tape in the holders on the lid.

 I then spotted this gorgeous tea light holder for $1.

Couldn't leave without the girls getting a little something, so their Barbies were treated to a new wardrobe! I love checkers, so we bought some pieces for 10c. Now I just need a board!


A big thank you to Sophie for hosting Flea Market Finds this year. Back in October I was the lucky recipient of the title "Flea Market Find of the Year"  and received a gorgeous delivery in the mail last week. 
I was so excited to receive these gorgeous goodies. I will put them all to great use. Thanks again Sophie. For more flea market finds, head over here.
