Fabulous & Frugal Fun: Jersey Fresh

Here is a glimpse of a $48-take from the a flea market near Morristown, New Jersey. I just want to qualify that because $10 was spent on the vintage martini set in the back and $15 for a vintage Hallmark card that you can barely see by its feathers from the bottom of the heap of ephemera. Most everything else was between $1 and $5, including a batch of memorabilia that includes vintage travel brochures to Japan, casino booklets from the Hotel Tropicana in Las Vegas and Palais de la Méditerranée in Nice and a really old fold-out map of Provincetown. Then there's the California-made yellow tureen, the wooden salad set, the vintage tea towel, and the shop-class wall brackets. I could go on ....

Always Frugal, Always Fabulous,

The Elegant Thrifter


  1. I like that California pottery tureen! And vintage towels are impossible for me to pass up... I have seen "shop class" wall brackets but never heard that terminology to describe them! I'll look at them with new appreciation now.

    That must be one doozy of a Hallmark card! Is it as large as its feathers make it appear to be?

  2. I love a thrifty man, just found your blog.
    Nothing better than the thrill of the hunt, an avis flea marketer and shopper too.
    Will have to check back, like the finds too!

  3. well you made quite a haul! congratulations! i love the tureen....anything ceramic makes my heart skip a beat!

  4. So jealous of your bountiful haul -- especially of that martini set. j'adore.


  5. Wow, the things you can get on the east coast. So, can we start bidding for the stuff? :)

  6. OK, so you know who getting the wall brackets!!!

  7. That $15 Hallmark card with the feathers has piqued my interest too. Must be a pretty special card. :-)
