The Fleas Have Been A Good Source For The Smalls Lately, Both The Wentzville And The Belleville. What's Up With The 'Villes And The Fleas? Dunno, But I'm Glad They's Around! Status: Getting Tagged.
One more day until the Wentzville flea! You going? I'm hoping it'll be a little better attended (by both vendors and buyers) than last weekend. In the mean time, check out this little lot of smalls that I've put together from both the Wentzville and the Belleville flea markets.
Oh how I wish the Belleville flea was more than once a month. These swirly blue glasses were
picked up there during last months flea. The cool thing is, the Sis-tomic brought home a group of
Six snack sets in this "pattern" from her last roadtrip! Those are, and consequently these will be,
available at the shop in St. Charles: Fleur De Lis - Home Source.
This little set of Vernon Ware "Tickled Pink" are the perfect thing to drop in an antique mall booth.
These will likely be picked up by a buyer who is working on a set or someone who is just discovering
retro dinnerware and will soon be scouring other booths for more! I DO dig the pattern (It's
Awesome!!!), but I'm NOT starting another collection!
This dish (is it an ashtray?) was made by the Sisters Of O'fallon Mo.! You think the fish theme
was like, on purpose? You know...'cuz of Jesus...and the fish. Anyway, it's a beautiful mid century
modern style representation and in pretty nice shape, especially for a flea find! When I finally get
some more shelving in my booth (much needed, BTW) I've got a ton of smalls like this that I need
to get down there. Right now...I'd probably have to set it on the floor!
