Wellfleet flea market finds

Wellfleet flea market is a staple whenever we visit Cape Cod and this year is no exception. Last Sunday was a $1 entry day which usually means there are not many stalls, but the showing was small but mighty.

Lots of vintage sold from tables in front of vans and cars by characters full of stories and information.

I bought the Birds of America book with the intention of chopping it up but I see copies in my future as it is such a lovely book. I snagged the whole box of vintage photos plus a couple of postcards for $12.

The mini awl and scissors may not make it back through the airport, but I will cross my fingers.

How cool will those lace gloves be if I print them using the gelli plate?

I have tested the nib pen and it still writes well even though it must have been a school pen (it has ‘public schools’ embossed on it). It is neglected and the nib is well used but I will enjoy using it to sketch and write.

Pocket Othello is from 1977 and we enjoy the regular sized game so for $1 I wasn’t going to turn down the pocket version!

I love to find treasures and as usual the Cape does not disappoint.

Happy Tuesday x

    I have a ton (!) of bird books- we LOVE birds- but I have to say that my most favorite is the first one I ever bought in an antique store in PA 20+ years ago…Birds of America. The illustrations are just beautiful, and as an information source our whole family, all ages, find it really accessible and clear. In case it wasn’t obvious, we vote for keeping it as is! 🙂 Love the Wellfleet Flea Market too. Thanks for a lovely post!
