Flea Markets and Yard sales











I am on the hunt for all kinds of things. Jewelry, scarves, clothes, purses, dvd's, art elements, rubber stamps, furniture, books, trinkets, lovelies, and super buys(to resell at the flea market)and more. I have been going to yard sales for 35 years! The "things" I have found. One day I bought several purses, now mind you, I had been to at least 10 or more sales. When I got home I picked my favorite purchase and started to add my things to the purse. I unzipped the inner pocket and, wow, there was a hundred dollar bill inside. I couldn't even remember what sale I got the purse at, so I kept it. What's a girl to do? Today I found 2 Aigner purses in brown. One I paid 10 dollars for and the other one was 3 dollars. Five necklaces (all 50 cents each)to take the beads from and make them into current styles. Colors that are hard to find are yellow, purple, and red. Today I found purple! I also found a Kenneth Cole black leather satchel purse(1 dollar), never used. A Merona pair of sandals with the tags still attached for 50 cents. Oh I just remembered last months flea market, ALL the pictures above are from one sale and I purchased them all, yes I said all, for 19.00.
