Flea Market Treasures

Yesterday I went to one of my favorite flea markets to pick up some furniture for my space at Aubergine Emporium.  I spotted a space that was selling a lot of little items and decided to take a look.  I already took the large smalls to the shop and forgot to photograph them but here are some of my goodies.  I love vintage ephemera items, anything with advertising and I love personal items like old perfume bottles with graphics etc.  I also love typography.  So here is a sampling of what I found.

Two vintage powder boxes.  I love the graphics on these.

 This old bottle with a fabulous logo.
 Old books with charming covers are another of my favorites.  This one is particularly beautiful.  I love the soft muted colors.
 Another powder box.  A pretty blue with a beautiful lady.
 I am in love with this teal aqua color.  I can't get enough of it.  I bought this for the design on the front to give me some sign inspiration. 
 The cover and the front page read "New Orleans, The Paris of America."  How cool is that?  I love anything French and this is pretty close in my book.
 Here is a fully intact box of vintage wallpaper border.
 I found five of these vintage boxes with the bottles.  I'm crazy about the typography and the coloration.
Aren't these bottles fabulous?
This squirrel is off of a larger piece, but this is what was left and he is adorable.
 Another vintage bottle with a stamped logo.
 This is an old beauty consultant's case.  It's in great condition except the label on the opposite side of the box is torn, but still the case is wonderful.
 This is the flip side.  I bought the coolest green dresser yesterday too and I didn't even get a photo and it sold today.  No complaints here.  That's why I'm in this crazy business is to sell all of these treasures.  Thanks for visiting.
