Saturday Morning Flea Marketing

Every October my parents' church, Mary Our Queen, has a huge Fall Festival. 5K run, car show, entertainment, food, kids games, silent auction, and my favorite . . . the flea market. I'm usually not the person who shows up at people's yard sales an hour before the sign says they are opening, but this morning I was the first one at the flea market, well before the scheduled opening time. Obnoxious? Heck, it's for a good cause.

I came away with this vintage Flexible Flyer sled which I plan on using as Christmas decoration, for (drum roll please) $2. This vintage ottoman is killer. Not sure if I'm going to redo it or just keep it as is. The ceramic figurines will be used for my matchbox crafts. The kitchenware includes two beautiful silver spoons with a sorta art deco design. The old tissue holder is pretty in pink (and in a house of a crier — me — we have tissues in every room). A desk organizer, which will get an overhaul. And a stack of towels and napkins.

The selection of furniture there was overwhelming, and I could have easily caved in to many a chair purchase, but I need another chair like I need a hole in the head.
