Rainy day, lackluster finds

It has been foggy and dreary the last few days, but it cleared up for a few hours in the afternoon so I got over to the flea market for a quick hunt before the rain hit again.  We have had so little rain that only the top 2" of dirt is damp and muddy, below that it is bone dry.  Some items were down and dry, others muddy.  I did get about $1.00 in change, I don't really count it each day.  I just clean the pennies in small batches and then the other coins in separate batches of 10 to 20 coins in the rock tumbler.

The finds we not too exciting.  A bent knitting needle, some stainless bolts, fishing lures etc.   And what looks like a giant thumb tack!

The only mildly interesting items are this Lord's Prayer pendant.
Apparently there is a woman who sells religious items.  I don't recall seeing her at the market but I have found a lot of brass Christian pendants with various designs.

This button is decorated with a ship with some gold plate.

And I'm having trouble interpreting all the symbols in this pin with a screw on back.
Anyone have any ideas?

  1. It looks like a Christian religious scene: the altar and priest (?) in the back with two altar boys facing him.
