pretty + useful = Pretty Useful!

just a quick peep show of the pretty things I bought at Shepton Mallet Fleamarket yesterday, which are destined for the Village Hall Vintage Fair in May.

Useful Things are my best sellers at the moment, and you can see I had that in mind when selecting these new purchases!

Lloyd Loom style sewing box- lovely to paint,
but really rather pretty as it is

1960s ottoman with the most DELICIOUS shabby rose print
quilted vinyl covering!

Large Art Nouveau oak dressing table mirror
which will probably be painted

and a pretty little Edwardian hanging mirror
in a perfect Farrow and Ball off-white

 a handworked tapestry and velvet cushion, and
rose pink silk scatter cushions- all feather filled

and an adorable antique fruitwood lampbase with
a 1950s rose print shade.

Now I just have to clean, polish. . .and paint :))

What absolutely beautiful finds from the flea market! One problem I have is deciding what to keep and what to sell! How do you decide what should be "keepers"? God bless, Brenda
