flea market finds......

enjoyed a walk around the Long Beach Antique Show today, a few of my finds......

a worn, much loved antique quilt......



scrabble tiles to play with, lots of possibilities......





clay marbles......



picnic basket, have a few, love stacking them and a rusty funnel to start my Pintrest inspired funnel Christmas tree......



and hubby found a old water bag that is used to keep the radiator cool on hot, long trips in the Model A.......




good company, good finds, good day......

I love your finds!

And one was a nostalgia maker for me: I remember using those water bags in the 60s too. Back then we had to cross the Mojave at night, because the cars had no air conditioning. The water bag was very important!
