450 Mile Flea Market ..............

We went on the 450 mile flea market last weekend . Here are a few pics for you to look at . Lots of traffic ! This flea market is on old highway 127 every year in August. It runs from from somewhere up in Ohio down into Alabama .
This is all I got this year . It is just so hot , I can't stay out there very long . The single coffe cup matches my Aunt Lena's dishes I have . I snatched it right up. It is the first one I have found.Only 7 more to go , LOL ! Cost-$ 2.00.Dessert set with roses - $ 5.00,tablecloth - cost $ 1.00. Soap dish, cost - $ 1.00 , napkins $2.00 , dome lid $1.00,shelf - $2.00
Another sweet perfume bottle - $3.00
A brand new sewing box - $3.00 and new hangers - $1.50
People scurrying everywhere.


Lots to see.


I thought this was pretty unusual . Hand carved . I think this is a good pic for the end of this post !Pun intended ,LOL !

Theresa said...

Strange end:) I do wish I lived close enough to participate in the huge yard sale. Perhaps next year I can make plans to take part in it! Have a blessed day!

Hi Theresa, THERE HERE!!! Yippee. I adore them. Your needle work is gorgeous. Thank you so much for offering them on you post. I am so lucky to have them. Beverly said she will come and steal them. No Chance. I am posting them tomorrow and how I am showing them as well. You will see why I wanted them so much. Your note was so sweet and I will always be proud to say I got them from my dear blogging friend.

Now, I am so jealous that you were able to go the that huge sale. I have always wanted to do that. I think you found some wonderful things for so little cost. I love all the things you purchased. I'm happy you found the cup too.
Most of all,the last photo really made me laugh.How odd!!

Love you dear friend...Jeanne

Judy said...

I love your ending. And the wonderful goodies you found. I love going to flea markets.

Cherdecor said...

I really like your new header. Maybe it isn't new since I have been out of the loop for a while, but I really like it.

This heat is killing me! I don't think I could have been out to do shopping today. They were telling people to stay in out of the heat.

It looks like you found some real bargains. Take care.
Hugs,
Cheryl

My HH is too impatient to get him to anything like this. Man I love these things. There is one along Hgway 60 along the Ohio River in Kentucky.
I enjoyed seeing the things you got.

Hi Therea, I am so glad you approve of where I put those beautiful pillow cases. I do love them in that bedroom. I just noticed I wrote 'there here' Silly me. It should have read they're here. I was so excited I had a blonde! moment. LOL.

From happy ole me, Jeanne

Beverly said...

I've always heard about this event. It must be amazing. I wonder if anyone hits the whole thing.

I'm laughing at Jeanne's comment about having a blonde moment. Ha! I better keep my mouth shut. ;-0

Oh Theresa, I would go crazy at such a big flea market! One thing I notice is that I can't stay in the sun and keep walking and walking for very long. I not only get tired, but I start to feel sick. oh well..........
