Back In Action! Flea Market Finds

Hello Friends! Well, I finally got to go to the flea market on Sunday! All month it had been rained out, and I was missing it sooo much! I was "a good girl", and only brought thirty bucks with me, but I think I made it go a long way!
above: I don't usually buy doggie figurines, but couldn't leave behind this black cocker for $1. The only x-mas that I found was this great corsage for $1, but the dealer said she will bring me more this week! Yes!!! I swear I have stopped collecting Little Golden Books (haha), but I always wanted to find this Happy Whale one, and so for $2 it also came home with  me!
 I really wanted to find a couple more quilts, and BINGO! I found two for $5 each!
They aren't perfect, and there are some stains that I've been working on. But that's ok! I wanted quilts that we can actually toss on the couch and use!
 I just thought this guy was cute for $1.00!
 Quilt #2 is huge.
 I'm not sure what this pattern is called. I'm sure that many of you can tell me!
It has this super soft paisley type print on the back.
 Our living room is decorated in a slight nautical look, so I thought this Japan fish pitcher would be a fun addition...for $3!
For some reason these "spoke to me"! lol I'm not sure what I'll put them on, but they were only
.25 each, and I love the color.
My other purchase was a really cute white wooden table for $10. I can't show it though because it's already in my living room, and I'm not quite ready to let you in yet! hahaha
I'm heading (with a very limited budget) to an out of town flea market this Saturday!! I think my parents are even going to come along. Should be lots of fun. I'll be looking for some fun things for Market Monday. I'm sorry I haven't had a Market in a couple weeks. We have had "drama" around here. If I told you all the crazy things, you wouldn't believe it! lol
Have a wonderful Holiday Weekend!
