Son #1 is off playing in New York this week - Cooperstown actually. Home to The Baseball Hall of Fame and waaay many other baseball things I can't even mention because I .....(gasp) do not enjoy baseball. I'm sorry, I know I may even lose a few followers because of this but I don't. Honestly, those games are 2 hours each, at least. With 3 kids, I know there is plenty more I could be doing than sitting on my duff reading US magazine - which is exactly what I would be doing ~ come on you know your guilty of it too:)
Luckily Dad and son #2 love it. So off they went. Flea Markets are always there when you need them - so off I went and look what I got: This enamelware ( I actually got at 3 different sellers) is awesome. I can't get enough of it after having read the last issue of Jeanne d'Arc Living. Very pretty and in pretty decent shape too. This old tin - which I couldn't bring myself to haggle over the price for with the nice old lady selling it. She said it was her Moms and she had a zillion of them but her husband threw them out and said they were junk. "Awful"! says I, and where is the bum today, not helping you sell? Then she laughed and spat out "Dead" - yipes! I handed her my $10 and sped off. That was a bit odd. Next vendor please. Also, some great old crown jewelry components for you jewelry makers out there. Everything will be on my shop by tomorrow I'm sure.
But finally, check these out............
AWESOME!!! These Vintage Game playing table tops. Very collectible and in great condition ~ Also (and this is probably older than I could ever guess) this lawn or duck pin bowling set. 10 pins and 3 of the most used wooden balls you will ever see. How I wish I had an old style game room to show these off in. I really had a great day at the flea ~ but now its over and I miss my boys. I'm so glad I have all of you to keep me company. I hope everyone is having a great weekend ~ I hear thunder in the distance so I'm off to bring in the patio cushions now.
