The last few weeks, between selling at vintage markets and working part-time in a shop, I’ve been unable to go to the bustling local flea market where I usually find a lot of my materials/stock. It’s a few minutes walk from my house and not being able to go has been driving me a little bit mad – so near and yet so far! But this morning – finally and thankfully – I got to go treasure hunting.
I had a great time rummaging through cardboard boxes full of vintage linens and inspecting table tops crammed with bric-a-brac, and found a respectable stash of vintage goodies to keep me happy for a good while.
One find was very small but no less happy-making for it – a little group of whimsical Victorian ladies.
They all look like they’re enjoying themselves in their own little worlds and they brim with playful character.
For now they’ve found a new home in my paper ephemera box, waiting for future projects in need of a character or two.
In the meantime, I’m hoping it won’t be quite so many weeks before I get to go a-marketing again…
