Flea Market Goodies

As is so often the case, I went to the local bric a brac market with a view to sourcing more supplies for my shop but nothing really grabbed me this week (apart from a couple of items which I ended up not buying because I thought they were way too expensive for what they were - some dealers really put their prices up high) but there were several items which I could use in my home and ended up buying these lovely goodies for me!
 a pretty pink flowered crocheted doily; two gorgeous silk hankies with lace edging;
 an embroidered  piece of linen with raw edges which hasn't been finished off, but I thought I could do something with;
 and another embroidered piece which is shaped to go over a coathanger, so a few ideas for this piece.

Hi Barbara, It's not so much fun to shop when the prices are so high. I'm happy for you that you found a couple of things though. The silk hankies are very pretty and the crocheted flower doily as well as the embroidered pieces are very sweet.
Over here it's raining. Hopefully you have some nicer weather on the weekend and can enjoy your garden.
Hugs to you,

Oooh, the flower doily is so pretty! I would have snapped that one up in a jiffy as well. Lovely hankies, too.
