too cold for me.........


the plan was to set up and sell today at the new pittsburgh flea market
in the infamous strip district

however, an early moring coffee on my deck let me
know that with 40 degree temps
and in and out showers,
i would never make it through the day

but natch..i had to go anyway
just to see what was what

well.
first noticed
they are now charging for parking in the strip
$5...a bit steep imo

not many cars in the lot
we just found a spot on the street

also..it was a bit of a walk...but......
the good news...it appears to be worth it !
some cool antique vendors..though we have a few regular good sunday antique shows around here
so hard to say how many dealers will be there on a regular basis...also...they need to lower their prices
just a bit.......this being a flea market.....not an antique show.

this guy had some really cool stuff .not sure where he's from, but i havent seen him before
"rough around the edges"...great name too.........

also saw my 'craft show buddies' Whimsical Wonders'..they sell on etsy.....find them here
______________________________________________________________________
great tea shirts from neighbor teaze
all the local neighborhoods.............show your 'burg love
_______________________________________________________________________________
some cool furniture like this.........but not much of it...
all in all.......there seemed to be a steady stream of customers......can imagine that on a nice sunny day there
could be quite a crowd........may turn in to a great place to sell of the 'off' weekends....we'll see........

Thanks Jeanne for the post! I was wondering what it was going to be like. Was it anything like the one that have at the meadows?
Health and happiness,
