A year or so ago, I would have had to agree. But now, I just love it. I am heading out there shortly, middle child in tow (future American Picker - its his favorite show) to see what goodies I may have missed last week. Today, I know many of the vendors by first names. Sometimes if I catch a gem on my way out after my cash supply has been depleted, the let me "slide" till next week. Can you imagine? Who does that these days? Also, today I am going with a mission in mind. I purchased this lovely Dom Perignon chiller bucket from an older woman, who by the look of it, may be living out of her car with 2 cats. At the time - I really did not want to spend the $$ she was asking for it. Honestly, I didn't think much of it, it wasn't really what I usually go for. But I had found nothing else that day and decided I would rather not go home empty handed - so I talked her down $20 and bought it. Well, needless to say, when I got home and did my research, it was worth a WHOLE lot more than what she was took. Of course it sold right away for a more accurate price. Therefore, today I am returning and hope she is there (she is always there) I am giving her the extra $20 - plus some items I hope she can use to sell. I am not a big textile person, but that seems to be her specialty and I have lots gathering dust. So I am giving it to her. Maybe somewhere in the overflowing bag, there is a lace tablecloth made by Betsy Ross that is worth a fortune ~ I hope so.
