Here are a few shots of the random and hilarious (photos courtesy of Kelley L Cox)
There were tons of jewelry vendors as well. Some vendors sold only vintage items, while others sold their own creations.
Some of my favorite home decor pieces were the tribal masks and figurines.
Here are Kelley and I with our finds! I found a great chalkboard for my kitchen for $20. Other vendors were selling smaller chalkboards for $60. I felt pretty good with my find, and people even asked me where I made my purchase! Kelley however, stole the show with her velvet Elvis painting. I had not even heard of velvet paintings until I met Kelley, but she bartered her way to a perfect flea market purchase.
1. Remember where you park. As you can see in the picture of Kelley and I, there are rows and rows and more rows of parked cars. It's easy to forget where you left your car.
2. Remember where your favorite vendors are. We spent quite some time retracing our steps and trying to remember where we saw our favorite items.
3. Go in with a list. You will be wandering aimlessly if you have no idea what you want to purchase, and the whole thing can seem REALLY overwhelming. If you begin with a narrow search (like jewelry, or garden decor, or whatever) the market will seem a lot more manageable.
All in all, the flea market was AMAZING!
I will definitely try to make it to next month's...so let me know if you want to join in on the fun!
