flea market

hello, blog friends:)  i hope that this summer has been good to you so far, for those in the northern hemisphere.  like most everyone whose blogs i follow, i too can say that the summer is flying by - it's always a bittersweet thing, it seems.

i wanted to show you a few items i found at the flea market over the july 4th holiday.  first, is this little black unused ledger - my first ledger ever.  and i do love ledgers!


the typography is so pretty - i especially like that big "5"...



slightly yellowed pages


i felt i needed this hand carved ampersand - new, but shabby and wonderful



and i was happy to run across this old card game - i've seen it on ebay and etsy, but never in real life - so now i have one to add to my game/game piece collection.




the graphics on the cards really appeal to me - so vintage




and here is a photo of the 7gypsies receipt holder that i've been admiring, but haven't purchased.  i was thrilled to find a pile of authentic receipt holders for a dollar a piece!



here they are - aren't they so wonderful?!  i ended up with 9 of them and *might*  mount them on a board - i'm not sure yet. 



and last, my new old flashcards.  for anyone who has followed my little blog at all - you know why these are perfect for me!  thank you for stopping by:)

Those receipt holders are so cool. I once had one and wish I hadn't sold it so cheap because I've seen them used in so many ways. Have a great rest of the day, T
