Fun at the Flea

I had fun at the flea market this last weekend. Saw some friends and family and a few of my favorite vendors. Here's a photo of some of what I came home with. Picked out quite a few pieces of vintage lingerie, the most fabulous one is made of coral and yellow and it looks to be made of crystal pleating with a large satin bow at one shoulder.

I've got a couple of gift's to store away for a couple special people in my life and some to keep. The rest will go up for sale very soon. These two art lithographs by artist Telo are from the 1940s. They are in need of some re-framing, so glad that is a skill set I have! I need to research the artist a bit more, but it seems as if he painted Spanish themed pieces. Will save that research for another blog post sometime.

Cute primitive small wooden purse/lunch basket/sewing basket. Not sure which. There is a small mirror attached on the inside top opening.

Carved wooden frame. Can you tell I'm a sucker for wooden items? When the price is right, they come home with me.
And finally, this handwoven art tapestry. It's made of wool and is approx 3' x 4'. I see the tree of life with some adobe missions or houses and the shoreline with birds. Not sure of the origin. This one I may keep if I can find a spot for it, otherwise, I'll be putting it up for sale soon in my vintage clothing and collectibles shop on ETSY. Psst: that's where I put all this cool stuff for sale!

And speaking of ETSY, I'm clearing out inventory to make room for all these sorts of newly found treasures. Have a peek at our SALE and see if there is something you may like!

I love the hunt and find of the flea market.

Just started searching, but I picked up a pair of Telo's as well. same idea, a couple in 2 frames (same frames as yours actually) but mine, the girls is a Spanish dancer with a fan, hair comb and veil? and the guy has a sombrero and a cactus with him. Not sure who he is, but I'm loving the work so far, have you found any more info on him yet?
