Last Sunday was the first Alameda Vintage Flea Market of 2013. I had very little budget ($20 max) so I waited to enter until 2 p.m. (when it’s free admission) and vowed to take more pictures than make purchases. Here are some of the many pretty things that caught my eye:

ladders reach new heights

This Sunbeam bakery sign took me right back to 8th Avenue at home, the wafting smell of freshly baked Sunbeam bread in South Nashville. Yum! Wish I could have snagged this to star in my future kitchen.

A great cart for scrapbooks, linens, plants, dishes... I was drooling!

A cast iron owl weathervane! Only $299...so I could only afford to snap a pic. Maybe I'll win the lottery and it will be there next month?!

I was struck by this vendor's wicker bar acting as their counter. Lightweight, stylish and useful. Perfection!
