Flea Market Finds

So, this weekend I went to a local flea market called Zerns with fiancé.  Fiancé and his friends went for this fake wrestling match thing....lots of very large men dressed as hicks and indians or wearing WAY too tight cheetah print spandex shorts fake wrestling each other and throwing each other around. Not quite my cup of tea....but the cool crafting supplies I got from the vendors there was!! Check it out:

This was all five bucks.
 So pretty!!! I can't wait to figure out what to do with it all.

This was the BEST FIND. This whole box was a dollar.  This is what it looked like when I bought it...

And I started digging through and found ALL of these buttons

....all of this bias tape/trims/etc!!!

...and all these zippers!!

There were also tons and tons of snaps and hook and eyes...if I ever learn how to sew, I don't think I'll ever have to buy a hook and eye in my whole life.

Look, it even had this little figurine. 
 Wedding cake topper? Eh? Eh? Haha. Just kidding. It's like an inch high. And made out of plastic. And check out that fro the girl has.

I also found these cute vintage keys, got them all for $1.50. I want to clean them up and make them into necklace charms.

Such cute stuff!! I see many fabric flower headbands, zipper flowers, button earrings, and key jewelry in my future.... :D

PS. Fiancé and I took engagement pictures today!!!! I can't wait to get them back and share them with you all!

    And I say yes to the topper--but only if you have a cake that's like 3 feet in diameter with no other adornments :)
