Flea Market Finds

Another trip to the wonderful Flea Market at Tynemouth Station today.

Two gorgeous broaches. The blue one cost me £4 and the pewter shield like one £3.

I also picked up the lovely Paragon demitasse cup. The photograph really doesn't do it justice. It is bone china and only 6cm high. On the base it has a double royal warrant stating "By appointment to HM The Queen & HM Queen Mary. A little research into the backstamp dates this at between 1938 and 1952. 
I can just picture this little cup come springtime filled with primroses. (I know! Spring's a while away yet - we've got winter to get through, but I like to dream.) 

Best of all was the little price tag to go with this little cup - only £1!!!

Also for the princely sum of £1...

This pretty velveteen case with embroidered insert, and inside?

A practical pocket sewing kit. 

I just love it!

  1. Hi, just found your blog. I visit Tynmouth marked each time I am home. Just love it!! Is there anymore markeds nearby? I like the embroidered sewing kit.

    Enjoy your sunday.

  2. Great finds, I love flea markets, solely because everything for sale has been abandoned at some point by its original owner. I get a real thrill from finding something a little mysterious.
    The embroidery on the case is so beautiful xxx

  3. Sewing kit is just lovely - a great find!

  4. The pewter brooch and the sewing kit are beautiful, such fab finds. x

  5. Bargains again. Your demitasse will look lovely with flowers in and the velveteen case is delightful.
    Love from Mum

  6. Oh yes, flea markets are the best. You found some great bargains.
