Sunday Morning Flea Markets

007

I can't even tell you how long I've been meaning to check out some of the area flea markets. Ever since we moved here? I don't know what's taken me so long to finally get out there and explore! So, this weekend Tom, Andreja and I woke up early and headed out in search of treasures.

We were hoping for sunny skies because there were a couple of outdoor markets I'd heard about but mother nature wasn't on our side. It was misty and cool and most vendors weren't setting up their outdoor stands. I took that as a sign that I'll just have to go back soon! Luckily there were a couple of indoor markets that sounded promising so we set our sites on those instead.

We ended up discovering one really great indoor place. It seemed like there were miles and miles of rows to walk down with vendors offering everything from vintage kitchenware to old photos. There was so much to look at! Finally Andreja and I happened upon one that was a little bit of vintage heaven. This place was filled to the brim with dresses, hats and jewelry. Quite the collection!

We ended up with a huge stack of dresses to try on and Tom waited patiently while made out way through the pile. He entertained himself by taking some sneaky photos. You never know how those flea market people are going to react when you start taking photos of their stuff! Andreja and I both ended up with three dress that we couldn't stand to part with. I'll take some photos to show you what I came home with!

I wish there were flea markets in ABERDEEN -there might be, I just have never checked. I tend to hunt around charity shops though. I tend to do 16 in one day! It is hard work, hunting!

Looks like heaven! I've missed flea markets lately. There are none near where I live now!

Okay, you're in Baltimore, right? That means that this place is accessible from the DC area. Would you tell us where it is, so MD and NoVA folks can check it out?

That gingham dress with the trim is to DIE FOR! I need to find the flea markets in downtown Toronto...if there are any. We've got plenty of vintage stores with crazy markup, though! Sigh.

It looks like you found some nice stuff. I'm going on a road trip to PA next weekend and was wondering what flea market did you go to?
