Fab Flea Find!

What else is there to do on a winter weekend but go to a flea market!   Hubby and I went to the Route 23 Southbound Flea Market, south of Piketon, Ohio yesterday.   This market is more my style - lots of junky finds and cheap!!

Check this out!

Can't you just picture it full of glassware and crafting supplies??!!    Or could even be a display piece when I have sales??    It's about 5 feet tall and it was only $10!    It actually wasn't even for sale; I spotted it towards the back of a booth full of books and asked about it.   The dealer said 'sure, he'd sell it'.  He used it for, what else, books but didn't really have room for it now.   I was thrilled and even more thrilled that it fit in the van!

I also came home with a few pieces of glassware, some old books, an old tablecloth and pillow cover and a few other pieces of bric-a-brac.   Gotta love those 25-cent tables full of junk!   

Oh I also found two small flower frogs, the old metal sharp kind and got both of them for $2.00!   The dealer did not know what they were and I had to explain it to him twice.   I still don't think he got it but oh well.

Love a great day at the flea!   I'll take pictures next time so you can tag along!
