I managed to lassoo my niece and her fiance and manipulated them into helping me move the flea market stall... with the three of us, we got it all moved and everything displayed in the space of one Sunday! I didn't think it was going to be possible, but it happened.
But then I left without paying the rent, so I dropped by on the way back home from work Monday, and, like a blasted idiot, I left my dispatch radio at the flea market, so I had to miss work today.
So today, I went and picked up my radio, and on the way back I dropped some stuff off at Goodwill. Since I was there anyway, I walked in to see what they had and walked out with some of the best flea market collectables that I've been able to find for a long time... Morrocan hanging candle holders, a 2 ft by 3 ft mirror in a hand-carved wooden frame, Danish Modern teapots... the great thing about shopping when you run a flea market is that you don't have to confine yourself to one style... You're not neccesarily looking for things to fit into your own decorating scheme, you're just looking for really great cool looking stuff... and now, I get to spend the rest of the evening cleaning it and pricing it. Joy! (not)
Now the white dove of peace at the top of the page is for the people in India... it just seemed appropriate when I started posting.
And the little cartoon is for all my cactus-loving blogging friends. I've had it forever, and I can't believe I haven't posted it before now...
