Flea Market Finds

Wow, today was one of the best flea markets ever!  So many vendors, so much fun!  We were there for five hours!  Wanna see what I got?

I have no idea what these are.  Yes, they are paint by numbers but of what?  I searched the museum for them and can't find them.  I tried searching with the following tags:  girl, boy, dog, cat, bear, hat, circus and monkey.  Nothing.  Any ideas?
This next item is one of those, what the hell is it and must have it things. 

It clips onto something and I guess it holds cups.  Does it clip onto a table?  Is it for a card table?  I carried it around the flea market and kept asking vendors if they knew, two of them said it was a cup holder for a car.  Um.  Why does it have a handle there?  Tuck napkins in it?

I just thought it was neat.  Hard to sell if you don't know what it is though!

A large box of papers and cards.

There's some neat items from the 40's from a school class trip!

Love the chenille doll card!
Apparently, someone was handy with crafts!

They used a lot of crepe paper.  LOL!

A bowling game.

I loved the old garden claw but the man said I had to take the second one for free.  LOLOL!  He wanted to get rid of them.

Matching little ones

I have one item that I didn't take a photo of, it's a 6 pane window!  I got it cheap and want to do a project with it, so maybe you'll get to see it some time later.  And got myself a new plant for my garden.  Was a great day!

Holy moly. You came home with a boat load of stuff and it is all interesting. Of course I took a hard look at the paper stuff. Noticed there was a wide range dating from the Victorian era to the 40'S??. Those two PBN are very cute. If you find any info regarding them, please do post. Someone sure did a nice job on the place card holders. They really make a cute grouping. You outdid yourself once again. Thanks for sharing your finds.
