Flea Market Stuff

I know. I was going to take time off. I still am. I just wanted to show you what I found at a flea market Saturday.
 It wasn't the best flea market I've been to, but there were still some fun things. I got a roll of twill tape (I'm not sure what I'll do with it yet, but I'm sure it will come in handy), an old cast iron hole punch, and a canvas bank bag. I usually shop the dollar tables.
 I like that the bank bag is from an Idaho bank~and the little stamp is still crisp. I'd love to find some big canvas bank bags. They make good pillows. You just stuff a pillow form in them and zip them shut.
 The hole punch is really heavy for it's size, and it's heavy duty, too.
 It can punch through fabric (and twill tape).
Mostly, I just thought it was cute.
Did you find anything good last weekend?

Love the bank bag! Could certainly see it as a pillow or clothespin holder. Would make a strap to hold it like a side bag over my shoulder as I hand linens out to dry. "envy!!" Just kidding, very happy for your finds.

Suzanne, love that little punch how adorable! Check out my new post I found a really good source for burlap and coffee bags. Mr. B. is building me the Pottery Barn cubby shelf...Oh gee, I'll have to find things to put in it ;)

Well that's an interesting idea about the bank bag. I worked at a bank as a teller when I was in college. I guess I should have stolen some while I was there. The little whole punch is great!

Twill tape? I've never heard of it but it looks like it could be handy for fabric projects.

Love that cute little hole punch! I'd make a purse out of that bank bag and I'd use a leather belt for the strap!

HA! I KNEW you'd be back!!!

WE had one of those little xingle hole punches at our business....hmmm...wonder whatever happened to it. Love the old bank bag...how about stuffing it with money and using it for a MINI-pillow? Just a thought!

Hope you are enjoying some "away from blogging" time and getting lots done. Save your energy though because the BEET season will be upon you before you know it! Hugs- Diana

i'd say you hit the jackpot even if the flea wasn't that good. LOVE the twill tape...and a WHOLE roll even. (and if you can't figure out what to do with it...you could send it my way.;)
thanks for sharing...now get back to your time off!

All that twill tape for one dollar? I would have snagged it too. Maybe even more. You could trim some lamp shades, use it to edge pillows, just start wrapping it around stuff! The little hole punch is cute and mighty sharp. The bag makes me think you were just in a bank heist! Love it.
