RUN!!! It's Revenge of The Flea Market! Status: whispering softly in your ear, "come, shop".
So much good stuff. So little place to put it all. I feel like the Mod-man shows incredible restraint in not bringing all the beautiful treasures home.
I managed to ONLY bring home the awesome "Lammerts" Danish side chair, some cool salt & pepper shakers (shaped like vintage '40s Westinghouse washer / dryer) and a couple of the vintage "Better Homes" mags.
I left only $55 lighter than I arrived. The key is to get there EARLY. The dealers will go through each others booths and find many of the undervalued / underpriced goodies. Mr. Modtomic is committed to finding the rest.
I'm kinda kicking myself a little for not picking up that Shawnee boomerang ashtray. Ten bucks is a pretty good price! Taking pictures is a little distracting. Everybody is looking at me and some are even brave enough to ask why I'm taking pics. I need to make up some cards for the blog!
We stopped at an antique mall on the way home and discovered a great resource of Mid-Mod-Madness. I'll have to try and get a post for that up tomorrow. Speaking of tomorrow, hitting ANOTHER flea market! So I gotta get to bed. So tired...ugh.
Head over to the Belleville Illinois Fairgrounds tomorrow morning! It'll still be going on!
