A Quick Trip To Webster

Are you ready for a quick trip through the Webster Flea?
You know how this works...
...random shots of whatever caught my eye!

The angel above was heavenly...

...a selection of hand crafted rustic birdhouses ultra feminine pale blue bed jacket.
I wonder what Mr. Flea would think 
if I were wearing this when he brought me my morning coffee?

This lovely sculpture looked incongruous in front of the trash can....
...I tried to edit it out.

...a red metal tractor brings me back to my farm roots.

peek a boo

I caught sister Lynn peeking inside this Barbie wardrobe.

...a few rustic things

...some very well priced ironstone.

...some brand new and unusual bits of decor.

Loved the frames...especially the rounded tops. old Victrola.
I remember a most romantic night
 dancing to a few tunes played on a similar old oak record player
 up in the mountains at Mr. Flea's great aunt's camp...
sigh...seems like yesterday!

A vintage glove box stuffed full of hankies.

Some fun nostalgic images...

...a pair of beaded purses.

A fabulous old blue enamel steam iron...maybe the first! 

Baby bits and bits of sewing items

So many pretty teacups!

...a small and painted mint green chest of useful drawers.

I had to include this photo.
This dealer throws all his merchandise on the ground each week
 as his regular clients stand around and grab at his offerings.
  I came by after he was "set up" already...
...about 3 hours into his day.

You might want to PIN this on your Display Ideas board! 

And then there are those dealers who are very organized.

For some reason I was attracted to lots of baby items this visit.
Isn't this sweet vintage dress charming?

...awwww honor of Valentine's Day.

Loved this stack of pantry boxes.

...a vintage garden ornament.

...a great collection of red and white wood fishing bobbers.

Yum. memorabilia.

...carnival glass

...aqua blue glass bottles

Love the pairing of this old quilt and metal industrial stool.

...have you seen enough old keys yet?

...more industrial pieces waiting to be re-purposed.

...suitcases full of vintage photographs

Have you ever tasted a Honey Bell?

...someone's matchbook collection.

And a matched pair!

Even though it was a short visit this time...
I will be back!
...and will be sure to share my sightings.

Hope all is well in your corner of the world.

Thanks for the tour.
It's probably just the way the body is positioned but that baby seems to have an extraodinary large head! xx

I visited the same guy that throws his stuff on the ground. I sheepishly picked up some papers that were buried in dirt and asked how much he wanted for them and he said $25.00. I said OH, uh... thanks anyway, to which he snatched the papers out of my hand and threw them on the ground and hollered "don't waist my time!" Yikes! I almost cried. The other folks were nice thankfully! Thank you for sharing your finds! =D Janet

All of your photos are such a treat! The sunshine and little dress blowing in the breeze... Mmmm... spring will soon arrive!
Goosebumps when I saw your STUNNING photograph of red & white wood fishing bobs... that would make a beautiful watercolor painting!!
Hope you're having a wonderful time~
Thank you for your peeks!

Carole said...

Great stuff. Yicks that dealer with his things all on the ground like that. Maybe it works for him:) I think I saw similar heads with graphics at the show.

Rustique Gal said...

Hi Laura,

Love it all but that sheer baby dress is a beauty. Can you tell me what happened to the Brocantess? I have been looking for her blog, last I heard she was getting married in Paris. Quelle mystery! Thanks CM

Cindy said...

I love the photos and all the treasures you found! I had to laugh at the picture of the stuff thrown on the ground. I have a feeling this guy doesn't stress over perfection!

I always love stopping by your blog, a feast for the eyes!
