|This festive display set the mood for a wonderful day!|
It was a spectacular day here in Ohio and our posse headed west to Springfield, for the Flea Market and Antique Show Extravaganza.
|Cock-a-doodle-doo, let's scratch out some bargains!|
Just let me tell you that in all the years I have been going to the Springfield show, this was by far the best time I have had there yet. The folks were all polite, the weather was cooperative, the food was YUMMY and the bargains were...well, EVERYWHERE!
|This kitschy Tiki Bar found a new home. We saw it being loaded at the end of the day, |
and I have a feeling getting it home was the real adventure!
I talked to several vendors to get their feel for the weekend and they all agreed completely - it had been a great day for them, as well!
|This was Arlene's favorite booth and we had to drag her out of there...|
so much else to see!
Of course, I always L-O-V-E to hear that the shopkeepers had a strong day, because that means the good buys will just keep on comin'.
|A great primitive rocking horse.|
As the old adage goes, a picture is worth a million words. So, enough of my editorializing already, here's a snippet of what we saw...
|A great barn quilt. Someday I'm going to make one of these! (Really!)|
|A nice selection of luggage and good prices, too!|
|A vintage sampler.|
