Perusing the Local Flea Market

There is a local flea market that is buzzing with
anticipation and excitement, every Tuesday morning
in my area. From April through October, vendors
are in place and shoppers are happily scanning tables.

This means I have had about 24 chances
to get myself up and over there with my
cart and bags in hand.
I think I went three times. Yep, three.
I know, it is a shame, just look at some
of this cool stuff I am missing out on.
I did go this past Tuesday and took some
pictures along the way.

Look at these cool soda crates! These
three look great together.

I had my eye on this chocolate pot.
So did the vendor. LOL!
 I just noticed today that I snapped
the photo with her face right
in the handle area.
Kind of creepy, no?
She was a very nice lady though.
She also had this on her table.
Lots of metal and rust here. 

 This sign caught my eye...
but I couldn't find anything for
my shop that was 1.00.
Can't hurt to try!

My poor little cart was over loaded
and stuffed. Turned out to be a great day
for me to find inventory for my shop.
Here are some of the finds:
Check them out listed, here.
I'm thinking about doing a link up party
called "Flea Market Tuesdays."
The sign I took a picture of at the
top of this post gave me the inspiration.
More to follow on that, soon!
For now, I am linking to Pink Saturday.
And Vintage Inspiration Party at My Salvaged Treasures
And Ivy and Elephants "What's It Wednesday"

Your outing turned out to be great one. You found some neat things. Flea markets are not the best.

How fun! We have a huge flea market here every weekend by my husband's work, we've gone only twice though. It gets really busy and it's so darn hot but it's a lot of fun.

Thank you so much for reserving those items for me! I really appreciate it:) Have a lovely weekend and the link party sounds like a great idea!

Fun! I love flea markets! We didn't have them back in Oregon, but since we've moved out here to Arkansas, there have been plenty! I'm looking forward to your new linky party---hope I remember to come link up!

Hello, I am your newest follower. I like going to flea markets too. That lady had some pretty things. Love the lamp globe and that chocolate pot was really pretty.
Thanks for sharing your day with us.
