Weekend Flea Market Finds

Before I share some of the goodies I found at the flea market this weekend, I just have to say -- don't you hate when this happens?
I flipped over my button and charm case this morning and I just dread the thought of picking it all up and reorganizing it. Ugggghhh!
This is not the first time this has happened:(

Some vintage Christmas cards

Love this little pamphlet from a county board meeting in 1890.
Especially like the listing of standing committees shown below -- the first one being for the alms house and paupers.

Vintage Valentines

Spend about two hours digging through two enormous boxes of
Jolee's by you and EK Success stuff -- outdated but still fun!
Love this trio of vintage mini books

As well as this retro children's cookbook

Some great old photos and cabinet cards

This mini book is just the perfect size for ATC's and has
various different stories in it.

LOVE this vintage rummy game.
