While at the campground, when Saturday rolls around, the Princess and I head to a local outdoor flea market. It is not a large flea market but, it is always a fun one to visit. And I generally find some good deals.
So, while Troy is doing his thing around our trailer, Princess and I head off for an adventure.
It was the fullest I have seen it.
I took the above picture from where we parked. By the time the Princess and I walked over to the first vendor, both of us were sweating so bad and our faces were completely flushed. 96 degrees and the humidity was 83%. Not a fun day weather-wise.
The guy who had this setup was all over the place with pricing. I did buy a couple of things that were reasonable. See the empty spot next to the green glassware? That is where my purchases came from. Here they are:
I picked up a set of 3 purple glasses from these folks for $1.00. Not a great deal but, I had been looking for purple glassware.
Oooh, can anyone say Pyrex?
That was all I bought at the flea market. I don’t know if they were just too high, not much I liked or I just wanted to get into air conditioning.
After the flea market we headed to this little antique/thrift store. This is such a fun place. I didn’t think about taking pictures because I always have too many things I want to look at.
I didn’t buy any of the gorgeous antique dishes and what nots she had. I really was bargain shopping. So, I headed to the back of the store which is her thrift store part. I found these vintage green and cream plates. 5 pieces for $1.00 . I just really liked the design on them.
After we left this store, we headed back to the campground and stopped at a yard sale along the way.
A large clear tote with the burgundy faux animal embossing. I love these large clear ones like this for doing exactly what I was doing this day. They are perfect for flea marketing. I can see my bottle of water or my camera in it even with packages crammed in. It was $1.00.
I bought each of these fun baskets for .50 cents each.
I spent $12.60 on this thrifty adventure. Of course, I then blew another $5.00 when I stopped at the little ice cream shop and got the princess a cotton candy popsicle and me a Boston Cooler. But, we needed it! LOL
Now let’s see a few fun things that were linked last week!
Tracy at Ms Bake-it found this fantastic dresser on the curb! Yup, we are talking the ultimate thrift…FREE!
Faye at The Blessed Hearth not only showed us glimpses of her Olde Cottage Kitchen, she shared a great recipe for homemade Ginger Ale!
Lynn at Cottage and Creek invited us into her office that she has surrounded herself with thrifted items that make her smile!
Now let’s see what thriftiness you have to show his week!
