Flea Market Fun

I just got back from the Melrose Trading Post and of course I had to make a purchase (or two). I absolutely love flea markets but I try not to go too often because my wallet can't handle it! There's just too much good stuff.  It's like a game..grazing through the various tents and seeing what treasures you can spot.  Today, I found a classic Suzani blanket that I've been coveting for a looong time.  These textiles are embroidered in central Asia and have become quite the hot item over the past few years.  I haven't made the purchase until now because it can cost an arm and a leg for a true Suzani.  This one is pretty authentic and it was a steal for what it is....

Some other fun stuff I came across...
