Last week I went to the crazy place that is the Hillsville Flea Market. I’ve been going to Hillsville for about ten years, and every now and again I swear off it. But I keep going back, because among all the crazy is so much vintage wonderfulness. It’s really not the best for old clothes, but I also find patterns and vintage fabrics. So, what did I see that was interesting , but that I did not buy?
The drawing above is a puzzle. Is her looking back on his college days, or is he looking forward to them? He looks quite young, but is that a cigarette in his hand?
Here’s the dream of every person who sews: shears that cut all the way to the points. And if you do not sew, you probably wondering why that is such a big deal.
I love old gambling boards, or punch boards, especially when they have a woman skating as the illustration.
Oh, for the simple days of Walt Disney World, when there was just the Magic Kingdom, and it was amazing.
This is my dream luggage.
As I said, Hillsville always has great textile sellers. This one, a Key West Handprint by Zuzek, is for Jacq.
I just can’t seem to get away from quilts.
This poor old calendar from 1924 was trashed, but oh, so pretty.
I couldn’t tell if this basket backpack was newer, or just in fantastic condition.
I love 1950s red plaid objects, and when I spotted this one I couldn’t imagine what it was.
It’s a traveling cutlery set! I’m thinking maybe I should have bought that one.
