I should have known. The fourth Sunday in the month, the day of the big flea market, is notorious for less than wonderful to downright awful weather. Well, it could have been worse. But couldn't the weather today be like yesterday?
Take a look for yourself:
This is definitely not a glorious blue sky. And the promise it was holding was fulfilled. After I had been at the flea market for about half an hour, it started to rain.
A random photo - antique bird cages. This was before it started to rain.
I just love antique doors. Luckily for my wallet, they don't fit in our little farm house.
And this is what the rest of the flea market looked like. At least the exhibitors that were still there. The rest were already packing up and leaving.
I did manage to snag a couple of treasures before I went home, looking like something akin to a drowned rat.
Some ephemera and an old book cover. Nothing inside. Perfect to use! But it got wet while I was carrying it around and the dye came off on my jacket. Ooops.
These two treasures were scored separately. A lovely vintage velvet jewelry box and a fantastic vintage necklace! I was amazed that they match so perfectly in colour, a subdued dusty rose. Much more subdued than my camera would have you think.
I also found a treasure trove of old lace and picked a few pieces.
Well, that was all for this flea market. Too many plastic covered tables - not photogenic and not good for sales, either. But I am happy with what I found and there is always next month!
Have yourselves a wonderful Sunday!
