I attempted to do a Flea Market Thursday last week, since the temperatures had climbed to the mid-50s, and a dealer friend was planning on selling.
I may have been entirely too optimistic.
Sadly, all I got was this small ironstone creamer, but at least I didn't slip on the ice.
But then, on Saturday, we headed back to the Spring Garden Flea Market, which, fortunately, is held indoors. I was really looking forward to it since we had gotten some good stuff last time, and it had been cancelled the previous week due to another snowstorm.
[Did you know that it's February, and winter? That means snow. And cold. For those not sure.]
Anyway, we got lots of treasures, and Jill from Vintageology caught us in the act!
Yes, that's another yard long photo under Mr. VJIMT's arm. I will have to try to get a decent photot of the collection in our upstairs hallway. I don't know how this one is going to fit -- it's as long as our small loveseat!
So here's my pile:
The best part is that most of this -- everything except the large platter, paper ephemera, and enamel pot -- was from one guy, who really just wanted it GONE!
I may have gotten a few items to sell on the Mustard Seed Pages (although I've already claimed the blue transferware bowl for my work table).
I went back three times, because he was still pulling out bins of stuff!
You had to do some digging, but that's half the fun!
The Valentines and sports cards are from a church flea later that morning.
And because this was a make-up date, the regularly scheduled show is THIS Saturday! Woo hoo!
