One man's trash...

I hate clutter, but for some reason I love old knick-knacks.  The right old item can give character to a contemporary decor.  Years ago (before I had kids), I would spend many Saturdays wandering around antique stores.  I bought this vintage camera before I was even interested in photography.  For $20 I couldn't pass it up -

It is hard to find really good deals in these kinds of stores anymore, but I found a new spot today.  I wandered around "A Classy Flea" in Marietta for over an hour.  They have really good prices.  These vintage purses for $12 -

Vintage roller skates for around $20 -

They also had some cute ideas that you could do at home.  Framed chalk boards -

And document covered books (but at $5 a book, why not just buy?) -

I walked out with 3 beautifully illustrated hard cover children's classics including this one -

It was hard not to buy an old adding machine for my kids, but I'm holding out for a typewriter.
