images of a flea market












Bright and early (4:45am) yesterday morning,my friend and I headed off to Oronoco, Minnesota to find the bargains at their annual flea market. I got ready the night before and got out my flea market bag... that by the way I made myself from a Amy Butler pattern...I love it! it is a perfect hands free little over the shoulder bag! I loaded it up with my cash and other flea market essentials. The morning started out really foggy which you can see in my pictures. After a two hour drive we arrived in Oronoco, which is the name of a little town nestled in the hills of Minnesota, it basically shuts down it's little streets and the whole town becomes the flea market. I have a picture of our trucks parked in some one's back yard up against their house! and you can see how the antique vendors set up in the resident's back yards also...it is so much fun! We spent the day looking for bargains and doing a lot of chit chatting with our antiquing friends...it was so nice to see everyone again! Here are some of the pictures I took yesterday...enjoy!

Oh those other "commentors" are making me mad - LEAVE MY FRIENDS BLOG ALONE!!

Ok so back to your day - WOW! Oh I wish they had something like that out here - and I love the look of the fog in the pictures - makes it look cool and green - what fun.

How long have you had that sporty short haircut? I love it!! I was at Oronoco years ago and it was a blast! I hope to go again someday. I had some problems with spam posts on my blog and had to set up the letter code. No problems since then.
