You can find it at the market…
Somehow after the epic garage sale this weekend, I was still in the mood for more junk. So on Sunday, Zach and I headed to a huge outdoor flea market just a couple miles away. First of all, let me say, that when I hear the word “flea market”, I inevitably have this song stuck in my head for the next 3 days:
Our flea market was less “mini mall” and more junkyard mecca. Here’s a bunch of people making their pilgrimage.
Here is a cool, weird mini tire display thing. I liked it a lot but it was $100.
I found my first treasure pretty quickly. It is an old wooden bowl in the shape of a heart. I wasn’t sure I wanted to buy it, but I asked the price on it anyway. The woman told me it cost “whatever price would make you buy it.” I told her $3 and it was mine. I plan on pulling this out around Valentine’s Day and putting some candy in it.
You can’t tell here, but that bowl is actually pretty huge, which means I will need lots of candy to fill it, which also means I get to eat lots of candy.
At one point, I got really excited because I found a Hugglet. Since Sarah and I are trying to collect the whole set, this was a great discovery. I asked the seller man how much the Hugglet was and he said FOUR DOLLARS. FOUR DOLLARS?! WHAT?
See that man in the crazy pants? He’s the one who charges four dollars for a Hugglet. I offered him one dollar and he looked at me like I was the crazy one. I threw the Hugglet in his face and stormed away super disappointed. Actually, that is a total lie. I gently set the Hugglet back on the table and walked away to text Sarah about my sadness.
What I will spend $4 on (actually $5) is this kitchen scale:
They originally had it priced $10, but it was marked down to $5. To be honest, I would have paid $10 because I love it so much.
I also picked up this cow creamer for $2, which I am currently selling on ebay:
And lastly, the best find of the day by far. This giant soup tureen is shaped like a snarling pig head. I thought that Zach was going to hate this, but he actually loves it. We bartered down on the price, paid $20, and now have this on our kitchen counter.
Update from Sarah: I was supposed to text Erin in the morning and go with them to this flea market, but I woke on Sunday morning to the sound of Erin texting me for the second time to wake me up. I was too tired to go.
The only things I’ll say are these two things: I like that heart bowl and I cannot believe how horrifying that pig is. I would have nightmares every night if that was in my house.
