Mishmash of Vintage Finds

A vacation wouldn't be complete without a browse through the local antique and thrift shops. While in Daytona for Thanksgiving I came across a hodgepodge of vintage finds. My Dad found the horsey ride at a car swap meet. Isn't it great? Such a unique piece for a collecting home. Then I found an array of vintage brooches and graphic wall art. The man and woman silhouettes are made of thin, knitted fabric. Wouldn't it be neat to do something similar with a modern silhouette? To top it off - a snippet of a rare Volkswagen at a car show. Did you see good finds this weekend?

I haven't been flea market shopping in too long (that's how you know I've been REALLY busy). On Sunday I hope to pop into our local favorite shop and check out the wares. You always see such great treasures!

please sir said...

Let us know what you find! Thanks!

FUN horsey ride... did you ride it? LOL
My 10 almost 11 year old insisted on riding one of those machines the other day... he is almost 5ft tall... his older brother filmed him with his phone/camera and apparently it is on YOU TUBE... ugh! I have yet to find it.
GREAT finds... you always find FAB things!
ENJOY your day!

I love that horse! You have inspired me to go to a car boot sale this very weekend. Unless it's cold. Or wet. Or I don't have money. Still, must persevere!

Those are great finds! I haven't done much thrifting lately, but my grandmother did give me a huge box of great costume jewelry to pick through...before she gave the rest to my 9 year old niece to play with :)
