Flea Marketing with Love

  I've been waiting for time to get on the 
computer to share my flea market photos,
today seems to be that day...

My kids & I have for the past few years
celebrate Mother's Day on the 
Saturday,  instead of Sunday,
I figure with Step Mom, Mother in Law  
&  being a Mother herself,
it is easier on my kids to celebrate with
me on Saturday...     

 Plus,  that was the day of the 
Utica Flea Market ~ Bonus!
 can you tell it was a cloudy day,
but the weather was cool enough to 
walk for a few hours & not get overheated
and it never rained, not a drop!
 I could hardly believe that my son 
also joined us,  certainly Not his thing,
but he was there for ME

 I loved this old stroller, kept thinking
I could turn it into a shopping cart for
when I go to Garage sales & other Flea Markets,
but the price was Crazy
 actually the prices were
Crazy Expensive on Most,
you would think you were at a high end
Antique store for what some people were
 whatever happen to finding a great deal?
 Love these only galvanized buckets,
I think they were all gone by the time
we circled around to leave

 If this could have weathered the outdoors
I think this would have come home with me,
but they wanted $250
Too rich for my blood
 The graphic caught my eye
 Is Ian asking if we can go Home Yet!

This was a big Flea market,  but most of
the photos I took were too blurry to use,

I was the only one to purchase anything,
I bought 2 old cigar glass jars,
I think I am going to use them upside down
as a Cloche!

Ending the day with Yummy Mexican food
of course a Rest!

Joining in with



  1. I agree it sounds pretty pricey - but your son going along, now THAT is priceless!
    I know I don't really mind just looking sometimes and I'm glad you had such a nice day for it.

  2. It sounds like you had a wonderful day. The last big sale I was at I was so disgusted by the prices that I basically walked through and walked out. It is just crazy...and there were NOT many people buying either. I think it is great that your son went along. xo Diana

    1. Not only was it expensive, they also charged $5 a person to enter! Saturday I am going to a Church Flea Market, so I have my fingers crossed for this one....

  4. Hi Cheryl, sounds like a wonderful way to spend a Mother's Day. How nice that your son was there too! so many fun things, I love that old stroller too!! xoxo

  5. I like the chicken nest thingy, but I'm sure it was too rich for my blood too... I thought flea markets were supposed to have good prices. I guess I will stick with my garage sales. When it comes to a day like that I am just happy to spend the time with my family, I bet you had a great time, Have a great weekend! t.xoxo


Thank you for visiting... Have a Happy & Creative day ~ Cheryl
