Trust me, if I could keep it all myself, I would. But I can't, so I go on the hunt. The last outdoor flea market of the year in these parts would be considered extreme to most. I woke up at 4:00am and drove an hour and 15 minutes to get out of the car in the rain, and look through loads of wet treasures sprawled out on a race track.
It pretty much rained, or at least misted on us the entire time we were there. Things were dirty, wet and there were more than my fair share of bugs and spiders crawling on some of this stuff. It was A-W-E-S-O-M-E! There was one particular area that I liked the best. a whole yard full of tables, old windows, junk, salvage items (like items from old houses), and boxes and boxes full of JUNK. Then, they had trucks filled on the side with more junk that they just kept bringing out as stuff sold. HEAVEN!
We got there when it was about 7am, so it was kind of comical trying to rummage through things in the dark, in the rain, pulling a shopping cart, with a purse while everyone was pushing past you trying to get to things first! On top of that, the guys who were running it were screaming to each other and to us "who needs a price check! Dont pay attention to the tags! Make an offer!" It was great! Check out some of the great things I got...
What a beautiful old window right?! This one was hard to let go of! But again, I can't keep everything for myself!
Later in the week after my big trip, I worked for almost 6 hours on pricing and fixing up my booths. Holy moly its a lot of work. Thought you might like to see some updated pics. This is what our primitive booth looks like right now. Its not all the way there, but it is going in the right direction I think!
Thanks for stopping by and seeing what we have been up to!
