loving my job

flea marketing........finally !!

we have had nothing but rain every weekend
and i have been itchin' to get out there and shop !

finally, this weekend...well...friday and saturday...were beautiful !
(it's pouring today)

we did a road trip to ohio..rogers...then hit
the old country store..
(a crazy place......could spend hours there)

then a few antique stores...
then picked up a typewriter i bought on ebay

then saturday..hit our local flea and
an estate sale.....

ended up with 4 typewriters.....yeah !!


and much much more....


the flowered material are 2 shoe holders that go on your closet door
way retro cool !

turquoise HUGE tablecloth...may keep to display at shows

2 little pink juice glasses
i just cant resist pink pastel


silverware...always

new girlie...
just cause i was in a turquoise mood
and she had a different shape

misc...keys, rulers, scrabble, hangers for display

a gazillion of these....
thinking some sort of Christmas decoration???


apron i just kinda liked and lampshades for displays

\
cute old.old.old hassock
i see it with a white massively gathered slip cover

chair from the same house...
again..i see with white slipcover

retro floor tiles.......already have a plan for these.....


and last but not least by far:

a big bag of old.old.old   girdles and bra type garments !
they are sooo very cool

cant you just see these as cute summer tops??

i am old, but apparently not old enough...does anyone know what on earth you hooked
to those hooks at the bottom??

too weird for me...........

and this last pic of the item that has
risen to the top of my list of
weirdest things seen at a flea market
(click to supersize)
gross.gross.gross
appear to be actual squirrels...oooooohh


we think he is the preacher...........and they are the bride and groom..........
again..........oooohh



well on that note............back to the title of my post......
'loving my job'

i have to keep reminding myself that this is a job !
i think i am so very blessed to have the opportunity to
make a living at what i love to do !

friday ...as we walked in the sun (my fav) at a huge flea (my fav)...
surrounded by all things old....(my fav)....
with just loads of wacky people to watch....(my fav)
i realized that this would be my heaven !!

so how lucky am i that this is my job  ???

It's it awesome when you can have 'the weirdest thing I ever saw...' catagory when you are flea marketing! I missed What Cheer this weekend, but had a great Grand Opening at a friend's store... Gotta love this time of year!
