Day 17: Market Treasures

Today I had a market stall at Lawson Markets. I sold clothes that I don't wear any more - just moving on stuff with my friend, Mon. It was a slow day but I still made over $100, which I was very happy with. Me, being the Bower Bird that I am, found some treasures to bring back to my nest.

The Moroccan box was $15. It's heavy - I couldn't stop picking it up.
The silver pendant ($10) has two hands painted on it with all these little symbols on them. The lady who sold it to me said they were Ayurvedic pressure points. Anyway, I couldn't stop looking at it. The delicate painting on it is beautiful.......

The purse/handbag I bought ($5) is hanging off my bookshelf. It is a work of art in itself with delicate hand embroidery from India around the old mirrors.

And last was the first item I bought - the lantern for $10. It is a little battered in parts but nothing that can't be fixed.

I wanted to say hello to Nicole from Going Green, who I met today at Lawson Markets. It was lovely to meet a fellow Blue Mountains blogger who is also doing Blogtoberfest.

These are all wonderful finds. I especially like the little purse. I have several wall hangings like that with those delicate shisha mirrors stitched all over them in my home. They are true works of art, aren't they. Take care.

I love the way you photograph these little things - they always look interesting.

I'm finally organising my blog... so updates should become more frequent.
