Milk Bottles and Vintage Trunks

On Saturday me and my mum went to "Mega Loppis", a huge flea market in North Stockholm. It was a good mix of lovely trinkets, old interesting stuff, house items, clothes and the regular crap :)
Here are my finds...

I bought these beautiful post cards, they were all signed 1923 and addressed to "Dear Mabel", from "Aunt Elsie". It made me think about what memories we will leave behind for coming generations... In 90 years from now, nobody will be able to find my old emails or texts to my friends and family will they?

I'm a sucker for vintage trunks so when I saw this big black one for a really good price I had to get it...

and this rectangular one. They are great for when I sell my products at markets, I'm gonna put cushions in the big one and cutting boards or trays in the smaller one.
I also got two small table cloths and a couple of nice glass bottles; an old milk bottle and a turquoise water bottle. 
This cool vintage cushion was a gift from my mum, she sowed it from old cross-stitched embroideries, isn't it lovely!?

I don't think I will dare to use this little apron, I love the pattern of the fabric and the little pocket.

My last find was this cream bottle, perfect for my ranunculus in the window!

What beautiful finds! The 'Dear Mabel' cards are like a postcard garden and I've always wanted old luggage to travel in style. :)

Your blog is absolutely worth to read if anybody comes throughout it. I'm lucky I did because now I've got a whole new view of this. I didn't realize that this issue was so important and so universal. You certainly put it in perspective for me.
