Flea Market Treasure....

I was determined to not spend much today but then I spied a table overflowing with vintage eiderdowns that I felt were literally begging to be taken home! A lot of them needed a bit of work doing to them to bring them back to life but I fell in love with this gorgeous peachy eidy that was in absolute perfect condition.... no holes, no fading, nothing!


ooh, it is so pretty.....


I found this fabulous book about Walt Disney World in the Cancer Research shop the other day. The photos inside are amazing and the pages are in pristine condition, perfect for a Disney geek like me!


Staying with the book theme, these Ladybird books were just £1 each from the market today and are filled with beautiful colour illustrations....


Beautiful Beatrix Potter card toppers (including guinea pigs!) and another one for the Disney collection! I'm getting towards completing this collection and can't believe Cinderella is one of the last ones i'm getting on the list! How naughty of me!


So there we have my finds from this week! I'm working all weekend now so no car boots/markets/jumble sales for me.... I suppose it shall save me a few pennies though! Have you found any bargains recently? Please do share if so!

  2. I've got two of those eiderdowns, one in the same colour and the other in shades of blue, how bizarre is that? Proves they were well-made back then, I bet an Ikea one won't be around in seventy years time. xxx

  13. I'm a Disney geek too so I understand the need to complete the collection, though I prefer Hercules, The Little Mermaid, Pocahontas etc. the slightly older ones, but the fairytales never get old. And that eiderdown is gorgeous! Looks exactly like the ones I keep seeing in my Mum's Country Living magazine. xxx
