First flea market in a very long time

I didn’t’ t go to the flea market in a very long time, maybe since November? It was a cold and busy winter and I didn’t have the energy or the motivation to go, even if it is one of my favorite things to do. But this Sunday was nice and sunny. It was a very good flea market day, with some good finds for my collection, with some relaxing time walking around and looking at stuff and also with some friends met there.
These are the things I have found:
An antique gold plated locket in a very good condition, with the two photos (of mother and sun, maybe) still inside under the clear celluloid). It’s my new favorite from my collection.

An old pocket watch winder that I’ll wear as a pendant.

A glass brooch ( I think it’ from the forties).

This unidentified thing (maybe some fastening for a jacket?). I don’ t know what I’ll use it for, but I liked the acorn like shape and it was very cheap, of course.

An old wood and brass knitting doll for my collection.

And a pretty silver ring.

Pocket watch fob

After long boring days of staying inside with an extremely low energy, I went yesterday to the flea market, to look around and be in the sun. I have found this antique silver watch fob (I think this is the right name for it) or is it a short chain? I really like how the mesh is done and also the buckle motif. The buckle can be moved up and down the mesh. Probably it used to be gold plated, there is still a small trace of the gold. The black enamel details are still almost intact. I like it as a pendant on an old silver chain.
