My Flea Market Finds

We went to the second annual Radio Tradeo Garage Sale at the Madera Calif Fairgrounds sponsored by KMJ Radio Station Fresno.  I did not find any postcards but some nice embroidery transfer sheets and some handmade embroidered items.
I found a bag of goodies which had embroidery thread and I could see a pattern transfer sheet or two.  These lovely Carousel horses are from an Aunt Martha's Hot Iron Transfer. I did not see them in the bag so with 4 other samples it was a nice surprise.  I also have the pattern sheets.  Fun to find someone elses embroidery.

From the 1950's 
Superior Company....Great embroidery transfers for kitchen towels and linens.

Two more packets of transfer patterns also from the 1950's by Vogart 
You can always find Aunt Martha's Hot Transfer Patterns at garage sales.  These cute girls are similar to Sunbonnet Sue.
Next week I go to the Antique Tractor Show in Tulare California.  It is a great show!!!  More flea market tables.

I have a few of these patterns on sale at ebay (seller id papel1) but other Aunt Martha's hot iron transfer sheets are available on amazon.  Just click on the above link.

I'm just you actually use the iron-on patterns or just save them as collectibles?

I do both. The ones I think might sell on eBay I save and list. Some I do actually iron on the pattern and do the embroidery work.


OH, I enjoyed your blog so much. Many memories and alot of smiles. Thanks. April fabricfrog
