Flea Shop Wanderings On A Friday

I wasn’t intending to write about my Friday afternoon knick-knack shopping. But I am rather surprised how some of them just snugly fit into the little nooks and corners of my home.

Take a look at this little cast iron "unicorn" I picked from a flea shop, it goes well with my terracotta horse from Dilli Haat.IMG_8329

This set of silver teapots on a tray were bought from an antique shop, they have "Made in Occupied Japan" etched on them. So my guess is they must have been made somewhere between 1945 to 1952, during the American occupation of Japan after World War II. A collector's item? IMG_8330

A fish plaque, also from the same flea shop. Finding “Nemo” was easy, she lay there with some old records on a retro-looking center table. I thought she would feel at home with my Italian stone owls. Any ideas what I could use it for?

Every time I go to a flea shop, I convince myself I must have that piece. Its another story that I probably don’t need them, but you will agree they do look really cute in my home.
