Today is the last flea market of this year. It is minus 16° out there! Well, as far as flea markets are concerned, I am something of a die-hard. I put on many layers of clothes (and again, I know how an onion feels), got out my old, long! teddybear coat and drove to the flea market. Baby, it's cold outside!
I didn't take my camera. Most of the usual dealers and sellers didn't show up today. The big lot was fairly empty, booths spread out here and there, lots of nothing in between. Weren't many visitors, either. I mean, how crazy do you have to be to go out in that kind of weather to rummage through old stuff, while your fingers are aching from the cold? Exactly. A lot of the sellers didn't even really unpack their cars. And some were already reloading, to go home.
Here are the results of my scavenging:
some bits and pieces of old chains
some very vintage glass cabouchons, possibly Czech or Neugablonz
some sparkly vintage rhinestone pieces
After about an hour, I had to go home. My toes were hurting from the cold, my fingers were numb. I don't think I even saw all the booths. Doesn't matter. I am happy with my treasures and there is always next year! I did find one more thing, but I can't share it with you just now. My husband does check out my blog on a regular basis and it would be such a shame to spoil the surprise...
Hope you all have a wonderful Sunday - stay cozy and warm!
