- - -

- - -
 
first stop - rogers ohio 
for the 
friday flea

stay overnite in alliance ohio..and then on to 
hartville ohio 
for the 
hartville flea

then back home to washington pa
for the
washington antiques fair

and then on to
bridgeville pa
trader jack's flea market !
 
and every yard/garage/barn sale 
& antique shop 
along the way

- - -

since i know you were wishin' you were with me..
here are some of the highlights


this is what rogers flea looks like on a good day:



seriously... have you ever seen one of these ??
it was too cool for words !


 

 
 
now that's how you pack a truck for the flea...

 

turquoise AND numbers .... hold me back !

 
 
button button who's got the button ?
 
  
country store stuff
and always windows !!
 
  
 
you do have to get up pretty early to get the good stuff...
that my friends is the moon still up...
 

 just look at the wear on the leather straps of these bells...
i'd say they've been around the block a time or two



i think that what i love about a flea most is the mix of things..
totally mid century modern chairs next to an ancient record player


i cant possible show you how large the flea is in hartville
for the holiday they have what they call an extravaganza 

there were about 1200 vendors
 
 
this pic is a tiny section 


you just never know what you will find




love me some drawers.......always !







giant dick and jane story book
you dont see that every day !
 





got barbie ?

- - - 
and what did i come home with..
lots and lots of goodies


these.....(dont ask)
 

and although i wanted all of these... i only brought home the top one





3 typewriters.....

oh and so much more...........
 
are you jealous yet ?? 

 i cant show you everything..
you have to come along next time !!!

heading out tomorrow morning forrogers again and the friday flea
 
and then saturday a somewhat local town has an  
all town flea..

the old tyme marketplace

childs formica table set..........awesome !






 if there had been room in the truck . .
this chandy would have come home with us, 
but i would have had to
hold it in my lap all the way home !

you could even buy some new duds there !!


i love globes..especially odd color ones - like white !




and added pleasure was that there was a 
hometalk meet up on sunday !!
