Saturday at the Flea Market

Sorry for the lateness of this post, but I way overdid it this weekend, so I wasn't able to take and or load pictures until now.
So here are the lovely pictures from my excursion to the annual Memorial Day flea market in Rockford:
(It's funny cause now that I blog, I take the camera EVERYWHERE!)

Here are just some of the vendors that set up for the weekend. It was easily a 150 to 200 vendor market that wrapped around the whole building's parking lot it was held in!

Of course one of the vendor's merchandise. I was particularly taken with the turquoise Foo Dog to the right :D Although it wasn't breath-taking, I love anything oriental(Plus I already have a cast iron one).

I had to take a picture of this little guy when I came upon him because he reminded me so much of my friend. It was the little look on his face between creepy and mischievous that reminded me of him -Lol-

And of course my best bargain of the day:

It was amazing! The guy had multiple jars and bags of junk and usable jewelry for sale. After viewing most of them and picking and choosing what was worth the price, I came up with the pickle jar above. And Guess what? It was HALF OFF O.o I got it for a mere $7.50!

I think I will keep you all guessing on whats in it until another post ;-)

I hope you all had a great Memorial Day weekend!

Love and Energies.

Looks like some great finds, I love flea markets and antique stores.

I take my camera with me everywhere now too! People might think I'm crazy sometimes for always snapping photos of random things:)
