Flea Market Finds, originally uploaded by jenib320.

I started moving into my apartment this weekend. Picked up the keys Saturday and have been taking up a load everyday. In between the packing and moving we managed to go to the Medina Flea Market this morning. We always hit the outside vendors first because they are usually less expensive. The first stand we stopped at we found the Woodland bowl and Horizon Blue Refrigerator dish. The Woodland bowlw as paired with two Fall Colors Americana bowls but I don't collect the pattern so we asked to split them up and he threw in the refrigerator dish free since it didn't have a lid! Ended up getting the two for $3 total :) Things got better from there, the next stand we stopped at had the Butterfly Gold refrigerator set. It was marked at $20 but ended up getting it for $17. It is in perfect condition! We didn't find anything else until right before we left until we found the Dansk loaf pan. It was marked down from $25 to $17 and was too excited to ask for any less, it's beautiful!

THE PAN. It is an incredible size, color, and condition. There is a small nick on one handle but otherwise is perfect. It still has the care instructions taped to the inside, never been used. I am beyond thrilled!

I have been resisting picking up these dishes separately at a local antique store for months, and I'm glad I did! It would have been much more expensive! These are super minty and easily could be brand new!

Finally picked up my first woodland bowl. I love this pattern but have been unable to find any in good condition or cheap enough. Couldn't believe my Mom talked him into throwing the refrigerator dish in for free! It's in really good condition and such a pretty color!

Overall it was a great day. Great thrifting and today's moving went pretty well. Managed to get some things unpacked, we are moving the bigger furniture and the Pyrex tomorrow. Posts will be sparse here for a little while!
