It's Sunday again, so you know what that means. That's right, the flea market! I got some great goodies today. Wanna see?

Yes, it's another candle holder. Yes, I already have dozens and dozens of them, you don't have a problem with that, do you? I didn't think so! This guy caught my attention right away. He was at the second booth from the entrance along with a lot of other great stuff. He's rustic and rusty and I absolutely love him. I didn't even negotiate the price because he was only $3. Doesn't he make a fantastic guard for the hydrangea? I can't wait to put a candle in him tonight!

If you're a reader, you know expensive hard cover books can be. The original price of this book was $28.95. I got it for $2 and it's in perfect condition. Score!

My daughter got the cutest kids' baking set for $3. It has a cookie sheet, spatula, whisk, tart pans and some other stuff. The whole set was brand new and unused, still shrink wrapped inside the box. I'm not sure who loves it more, her or me!

She also got two Beanie Babies for $1 each and a Gameboy game for $5. She scored big!

The produce was fantastic today, too. These blueberries were just calling my name. The bowl they're in is a flea market bargain from last year. It was 25 cents and I love it.

After we got home, I was sitting in the back yard enjoying the sun when I spotted a special visitor on the lilacs.

Isn't she beautiful? I hope she comes back to visit again soon.
Happy Sunday, everyone, I hope you're enjoying your day as much as I'm enjoying mine!

I loved your findings, and this post in general. It made me wish I was there, in your garden, enjoying the atmosphere, the sounds, the smell of flowers and a talk with you! :)

I love flea markets too; you got some great stuff for great prices. I don't get to go too often because there aren't any super close to us and our five year old gets very bored very quickly. >sigh< I will live vicariously through you!

You raked in the bargains again; good for you!! I love the blueberry bowl from last year; so simple and sweet. I hope that butterfuly returns. I also have a lilac bush, and I'm hoping I get a butterfly soon. Hoe yours returns!

What a wonderful way to spend your Sunday! Can't wait until the local market opens up (next week, I think)

Great post! Now I've got that flea market craving!

Nice deal on the book! I loved "The Talisman" by King/Straub - one of my favorites!
