You know that the nice weather has come when out comes
the red truck.....
Yesterday was a beautiful warm sunny day to go out to one of
our favourite flea markets.
We ventured out to Lakefield, Ontario.
Usually there are as many vendors
outside as there is inside but for some reason the
outside vendors were few in numbers.
Oh well it's early in the year...
Here is one vendor who turns wood.......or a wood turner
maybe the appropriate name.
Then there was this table full of milk glass.........
Another booth full to the ceiling with a little
this and that....
Well I was on the look out for ironstone plates,
and I found just what I was looking
Do you want to see???
These are just the right size for homemade
One to sit by my kitchen sink
or in the main washroom and
the other in the downstairs
washroom to hold a large bar of gardeners soap.
Vintage Relpo pottery..
Made in Japan
It could have been a trinket box??
or a small planter...
Do you know what it is or was?????
Then I saw this piece of Fiestaware..
Oh it spoke to me.....take me...
Love,Love Love it's bright colour!!
The ironstone has a funny story..
Every booth I went to I asked ..any ironstone..
Then when I went inside to this cute nook
where there was a table to have a light home cooked lunch....
there on the wall was a display of dishes....
My eye went directly to the ironstone.....I can tell these dishes a mile away...
So I asked the nice lady do you sell these dishes and she said it all depends..
what are you looking for.
(you see these were her own dishes that you lunch on)
I see two small ironstone dishes....She pulled them out from under
other plates ...these two she asked....YES....How does $10. sound....
Out came the $$$$ and I walked away with
these two cute plates...
So if you are out antiquing you never know what you will
find or in that case purchase unless you ask!!
Thanks for stopping by!
