Flea Market Fun

I finally had a light bulb moment and figured out how to get a link to my Facebook page on here, go me! Click on the little coffee cup over there on the left and give me a like! Bear with me since I'm new with the whole Facebook Blog page.

So today I got out of work early due to the holiday.  I decided that since it was Friday I'd finally go over and check out that little flea market that is down the street. I've been driving by it for years and always thinking I should go check it out. After a little tour of the parking lot I finally found a place to park. I walked with the crowd figuring they knew where we were going.

First thing I noticed? People selling oranges, other fruits and plants in the parking lot. I was surprised they let people sell outside of the gates. The first thing I was greeted with INSIDE? CAGES! Filled with Doves, Finches, Cockatiels, and bunnies! On the way out I looked at the booth a bit more and they had snakes, hamsters, rats and mice. Crazy!

There were a lot of booths selling the usual "new-knock off" stuff, a lot of vendors selling ethnic foods-cooked and uncooked, people cutting hair??, selling medicine (pretty sure something that says AMOX is illegal to sell??) and tucked here and there people selling junk.

Ahhh my favorite!! It's like a multi family garage sale for rows and rows. If you need tools this is the place to go, although, I wonder really if any how many of these items are stolen? You gotta wonder how these people are getting 30 used computers...

I found a couple things to buy, a nice big Pyrex bowl, a really large brooch and a necklace pendant.

After looking this up it's called a Pyrex Verde Square Flower Cinderella Nesting Bowl 4 Quarts #444

Check out the brooch! It's about 2 1/2" and raised, I think it's pretty cool!

A little necklace pendant, I will probably will keep this one :)

So a few fun things. I might go back... I'll have to take out my camera next time to capture some of the really bizarre things!
