Sara’s Finds From The PCC Flea Market!

By Sara In AZ


Wow! There were so many vintage goodies for sale it was hard to hold myself back. I tried to be a really good girl though and I did stay on budget. So here is what I bought at the PCC Flea Market.

I found a cute little Freeman McFarlin wall hanging. As you can see it is a little cherub angel baby. I usually see mermaid and fish wall plaques from Freeman McFarlin, I have never seen one like this before. I will have to research this one and see if I can find out anything about it. Readers, do you know anything about this little plaque?

It seems that I have become an inadvertent salt and pepper shaker collector! I do not have that many though, maybe 10 sets or something like that. I only get them if they are really cheap and  really kitschy. I did not even realize this was a salt and pepper shaker set until I really looked at it. This bullfighter set is made by ‘Bradley of California’.

I am cuckoo crazy for any vintage ceramic mermaid or fish wall plaques, I can never pass them up! I found this HUGE Freeman McFarlin wall plaque fish! Seriously, it is over 1 foot in length – I put a dollar bill in for size reference!

I could not pass up this set of fish still on the original backer! And no, I am not removing them from the backer! I am trying to find a shadow box that they will fit into. I would feel so guilty removing them from the original card after ALL this time. The backer says it’s a “Decorative Wall Plaque For Every Room In The House” it is from Decorative Gift Company Los Angeles, CA.

My last purchase was this funky TV lamp. It is done in the comedy/tragedy theme and I could not resist it. Here it is outside, where I could get the best pics without the glare of the flash.

And here it is inside with the TV light on. It is really hard to get a good pic with no flash!

So, these are all my Flea Market Finds. I really wanted the small bullet planter that you saw in my last post, but I didn’t want to spend $45 on it! Maybe next time. Readers, are there any Flea Market Finds you would like to share with us?

    Ruth – I LOVE the fish on the backer too, so hard to find them on the original card like that. I will do a post of all the fish and mermaids sometime! Brass fish ashtray for 45 cents – total score!

    Annie B. – I’ll bet you could hunt down some fish and mermaids in your neck of the woods, they are around but sometimes they are easy to miss. The TV lamp is pretty crazy cool huh!
