I took the afternoon off today and went to my first flea market of the season in Sparks, Kansas. Now if you haven't heard of Sparks, KS you would not be alone. When the market is not open (and it's only open two long weekends during the year), the town of Sparks has a population of 9.
The flea market brings thousands of people to town and my mom and I were part of that crowd. We had a great afternoon. The weather was perfect and I was able to find a few fun things at very reasonable prices.
I was most interested in little items today and this is what I came home with.
Westclox Clock ($5.00)
Sentinel Alarm Clock ($2.00)
Small ironstone cup and saucer (75 cents)
Keys (25 cents apiece)
Locks ($1.00 apiece)
Rubber Stamps ($5.00 total)
19th Century Notebook ($1.00)
Vintage bottle ($1.00)
Small keyhole (free)
Hooks (3 for $1.00)
Carter pail for a friend whose last name is Carter ($10.00)
Not sure what to call this (10.00). I was told this was used in an automotive garage to hold different sized belts for cars. I'm thinking clothes/coat rack.
Big desk drawer ($5.00). I'm going to use this as a shelf.
Vintage frame ($5.00) This is going to get painted and used for a memo board.
White porcelain doorknobs ($2.00 apiece)
My mom didn't come home empty handed either. She found some fabric for a great price. She will probably be busy sewing aprons with it tomorrow.
