I Just Can’t Wait For This…

 

What….Flea Markets, Yard Sales, Estate Sales…anything that smells of a bargain…it’s genetic…my husband says it’s a sickness :-(

If I hadn’t traveled to this flea market in a jet, I’d have bought some goodies…carry on baggage just doesn’t allow for many dishes!!!

GREEN POLKA DOTS!!!

image

Let’s purchase a hat so we won’t sunburn…I think I’ll have the green one on the right please!!!

image

I see a butter dish with green flowers, a green mixing bowl, and green shirts…I sure would have liked to buy that wooden rolling pin!!!

image

See those aluminum tumblers, my Mom had some when I was a child and I hated them…they sweated so bad!!! One of those tumblers is green!!!

image

I had so much fun watching this guy make doughnuts…maybe I was hungry…more green clothes!!!

image

See those lovely little gems…I can taste them now…he’s catching them with a green spatula/drainy thingy…

image

Let’s pull up a couple of those vintage chairs and prowl through all of that delightful vintage jewelry…I see a green necklace!!!

image

Such a delightful way to spend a day…green letters and trees!!!

  1. This looks like so much fun. So did you buy anything at all. You really need to carry an extra suitcase just for treasures. lol Hugs, Marty

  3. I know what you mean about shopping out of town and can't carry the stuff on the plane. Bummer. I remember those tumblers, too. Your dog looks like my Baily. Is yours a silkie?

  4. Well Becky---you need to come to Crossville the first full weekend in August for the biggest Yard Sale in the World.... It's the Highway 127 Yard Sale---which goes for miles and miles and miles for an entire weekend. Crossville is sorta in the middle I think..... Have you heard of it????? It is huge... You would be in hog-heaven.....

    Happy St. Patty's Day. Wear your green...
    Hugs,
    Betsy

  6. Happy St. Patrick's Day! My car finds it hard to pass by a garage sale, flea market or estates sale. We must be relatives!

  8. I love a great flea market, unfortunately ours here in Roanoke is junk and nothing more. Phoenix, AZ had a great one years ago until it became over-run with commercial sellers rather than garage sale people. It was sad to see the true flea market style disappear. Yours looks great!!

  9. Wow, there was some great stuff there! I LOVE that red tea kettle. And I remember those aluminum tumblers so well, I actually loved them because they kept everything so icy cold. But sometimes your lip would stick to the rim :) Happy St. Patrick's Day. Kathy

  11. You have a heck of a lot more restraint than I do! I would have boxed it up and flown it home with me or shipped it! There were too many things that caught my attention in the third picture! One time when I was visiting family in CT, we stopped on the way to the airport at an antique store and I found some blue willow I just had to have. I had the woman double wrap the items and then we stopped at a store so I could buy something to use as a carry on. I am bad...

    Happy St. Patrick's Day!

  12. Great post! Sometimes the best part of yard sales, etc., is when we see something from our childhood.

  13. This is a wonderful post for St. Patrick's Day, as are the mosaics below. You really do need to come to Crossville in August to take part in the World's Longest Yard Sale.

  15. You're my kinda gal! Love bargains and people hate me when I get them. I say, "all you have to do is look for them" but they're usually too impatient or lazy so they pay full price. Since I had a retail store....I never pay full price for anything!LOL! I'm finally in vogue....with the economy these days everyone is looking for a bargain basement price tag! Where was this festival/flee market? Unfortunately, you have to pay extra for baggage now so taking along another one just for these goodies is not feasible is it? You would pay more for the baggage than the actual find! LOL! It was like taking a trip down memory lane! I remember many of those items including the tumblers! Love the hats...my favorite...the pink with the green brim in the back or the top plaid to the right! Thanks for sharing! Have a wonderful day!
