Yes, I’m actually writing about dirty little bottles because it has a cute story. This is just a quick post to share some little treasures that I found this past weekend at our local flea market. The Kane County Flea Market is held the first weekend of each month, and is one of the largest in the area. Lots of vendors, lots of shoppers, and plenty of goodies. Like these vintage bottles that I found for a few dollars.
Last week I shared some of my vintage aqua bottles in my family room.
One of the open air vendors had a basket of about 25 of these bottles so I had to stop and take a look. I’ve been wanting some brown bottles and grabbed the only 2 they had left, and then snagged a few others that were crusty enough to look like they’d had an interesting past.
After I finished paying for my vintage finds, Mike asked me “Did you really just pay money for some dirty little bottles?” I had to stop and laugh because I realized how ridiculous that might seem to someone who doesn’t know about a collector’s strange fetishes.
Aren’t they cute? Please tell me they’re cute so I can vindicate myself! LOL. I warned Mike that I was going to write about his “dirty little bottles” comment. He told me he was happy to contribute to my blog content. I’m glad he’s a good sport!
What do you like to hunt for when you’re at the flea market?
