Flea Market & Church Rummage Sale Finds

I love the flea market.  Every other Sunday, the Piccadilly Flea Market sets up at our local fairgrounds.  There are three large rooms full of tables of (mostly) treasures.  I normally walk through twice just to make sure I don't miss anything.  On my most recent trip, I found this 13" x 8" Friendship casserole.  It's huge!
It wasn't priced so I asked the lady at the table how much it was.  She hemmed and hawed and said "Oh that's a very collectible piece".  My heart sank at those words.  But then she came back with $4.00 and I gladly handed her the money without doing my usual haggling.  This dish is perfect.  The colors are vibrant and there are no chips or scratches.

The day before, I happened upon a church rummage sale (one of my favorite types of sales).  It had been going on for a few hours when I got there so I was a little skeptical about what may be left.  Imagine my surprise when I saw this sitting front and center when I first walked in the door
It's kind of hard to tell from the photo but this is the 2-1/2 quart 475-B Butterprint casserole.  And it came with the lid.  All for $3.00!  I love those church ladies!

Until next time.....
