Round Top Part Three - Glass, trinkets, stuff



Here is what you have been waiting for the STUFF!

These bottles were one of the "it" items.  We saw them everywhere and in every price range.  They are wine bottles from France.  Speaking of France, if it had french words and burlap on the item, they also fell in the "it" category. I'll show you those first.





There is a lot of pictures, so I may double up on some rows.  This is when I need to learn how to collage.

White stuff!



Need a wooden box, any size or shape?


Told you they were popular.




The story behind the china deal.

This is my Mother's china pattern.  I have never seen it anywhere but her dining room table.  I saw the sticker on the covered vegetable bowl and I thought ... ooh gee, $75.00 for the one bowl.  When I looked closer it said, $75.00 /set.  Do you see large and small platter, sugar and creamer, plates, etc....

I called my Mom immediately, she had never seen it anywhere else either.  Balli Hai, by Kent.

I asked the vendor if that was the best he could do?  Held my breath and he said he would take $65.00.  I hesitated just one long second and said I would take it.  The packing newspapers were from 2002, he was probably thrilled to see it go.

When we were boxing it up for the ride home, we found two coffee cups!  Bonus!
I researched Replacements Ltd.  when I got home and are you ready... for 24 pieces $500.00!
Don't you just love flea markets?


Next post.... furniture, wood, metal

  2. I have never seen those bottles here, how odd. What do you do with them? Are they just decoration or are they used as vases? Do you have a name from one of them? I'll have to research it!
    That 'flea market' is what is called a 'Brocante' or 'Depot Vente' but it looks really, really good!

  3. Torture, torture, torture! I want to go to Round Top so bad! To me it looks like those vendors save up everything we want and sell it there. Hmm.
