The magpie who flew the nest

mm 2

Since I have joined the iPhone gang I have been able to iMessage my brother (check out his clothing and accessories company blog here) in America. I feel like we have a whole new lease of life as our usual contact is limited to Skype. He and his Primary School teacher wife share my love of second hand bargains and often have a browse on a Sunday afternoon in their warehouse sized local charity shop.

However, this weekend they found a Flea Market! Was I jealous? YES!

He messaged me from the Columbus Flea Market and sent me some fab photos (he knows how I love a bit of wood grain in the background) of their thrifty finds.

I knew I just had to share them for the Magpie Monday link I join in with! I'll save my sparkly second hand specials for next week. Can you guess what I found?!

Flea Market finds:

Potato Basket - $2, Pencil Stool - $10, Local NJ Winery Red Wine - $11, Xacto Tool Set - $6, Felt Hearts - FREE

Didn't they do well?! Sad as it sounds the next time we have a holiday to visit them, I have a yard sale and Flea Market on my sight seeing list!
