flea market treasures

On Saturday my son and I drove to Northwest Ohio to check out a flea market. For me it was a treasure trove of the things I love the most, old photos and tins! I can't wait to start creating with everything. This wonderful old photo album was filled with cabinet cards, cdv's and tintypes.






These tins and metal jar tops will be turned into a variety of small assemblages.




These photos were found at various different booths



Some rusty odds and ends, there can never be too much rust for me!!

it was at the Seneca County Fairgrounds in Tiffin which is not to far from Findlay. The flea market is once a month. Wish it was more often!
