Flea Market Finds

DH wanted to go to First Monday today so who am I to argue. I knew it would be hot and we would not stay long, but I was up for it. I found a few good things, mostly it's what I found in the trash out there that was great. I guess the dealers didn't want to haul some of this stuff back so they just trashed it. I found these picture frames in one trash can, I always need wood frames.

And then I found this great Lamp pole in another trash can

I love it when People throw good stuff away :)

Now for my purchases:
I got this thing for rubber stamps, I think I'll make some sort of jewelry holder with it.

On the way out I found a great split oak basket for 1/2 off (I'm a sucker for baskets), and I also got metal keys and hooks which I desperately needed.
It did get very hot and we were only there for a couple of hrs. DH went for the Lemonade and funnel cake.

Great stuff - but what is First Monday? That would be nice to go to and not have to wait for the weekend!

Where oh where is that junk shop?

That looks like a fabulous time.

That would be a fun place to have a junkers "meet-up".

I am in Tx. so it is within driving distance.

If I can find me a man that enjoys junking as much as I do, he will be a keeper.
