Sunday is always a good treasure hunting day.  The 49er Flea Market is one of my favorites.  We have a lovely vendor there that allows Ken and I to go behind the booth and dig through her stock that is not currently out for public sale.  I was on short funds today so had to be careful of what I grabbed!  I did manage to find this wonderful Castlecliff fish bowl necklace.
I have been looking for one of these for about a year but never saw any at the flea markets we went to and could not afford the ones that I found online.  I spent a little bit more than what I wanted to on this one, but I am sure I will still make a profit.  This one is currently listed in my Ebay store if you wanted to go over there and take a look at all the details.  :)

I also found this unsigned photo locket brooch.  I had a very hard time with researching this as it is just so unusual.  I finally found one identical to it, but the other one was signed.....CORO!  Who knew??  So I went to the Coro Jewelry Patent website and sure enough, there it #112148 by A. Katz from 11/15/38!  This lovely piece even has the original photos still inside!  I will be listing this beauty on my Etsy site soon.

Tomorrow is Monday, which means Webster Flea of the biggest flea markets in the state.  Ken and I always find lots of lovely pieces there and I can't wait to see what treasures I find to show to you!


  1. Oh my word, the fish bowl! I cannot find an ebay link, help! I am on FB as Mary Wald's Place.

  2. I put the link on your FB page Mary, but you can always find the links to my Ebay and Etsy stores on the right hand side of the blog page. :)
