Flea Market Day

 Rogers, Ohio hosts their weekly flea market every Friday.  My beloved and I generally go at least once a year. 
In spite of the fact that the temperature was to soar to a 100 degrees this Friday we still planned to go.   The decision was made to rise early and hit the road before 7:00 a.m.    Looks like everyone else had the same idea.

This outdoor market  has over a 100 different spots for dealers to set up and show their wares.   It has a little creek that meanders through the place.

 There is new and used merchandise, antiques, food, and everything imaginable for sale.   If it can't be found here it probably can't be found anywhere!

Hubby spotted this old Honda motorcycle - it still would start and run.   We left it behind - not really in the market for another bike today.    
I was hoping to find some white saucers for my watercolors and perhaps some old books to either alter or use for collage.   Most often what I go in search of is not what I find.  Today was no exception.

Instead this is what we brought home. 

First  came something old:

Then something new 

and then something blue   

As you can see there are no saucers and no books - perhaps next time around!   Flea markets can be such fun.    You are never sure what you will find.

Hope you enjoyed browsing!
May God bless you all !

  2. Oh what a delightful table with the lutes on the side!! My university was Pacific Lutheran University and the lute was their emblem. Go Lutes! Sounds like a marvelous day but I am afraid I would have fainted in that heat after an hour or so!

  3. Thank you for another lovely post

    I miss Ohio.

  4. Nothing like a weekend flea market and aren't you lucky to be able to go to one any Fri you like? Love the table-I'd be putting some chalk paint on it.

  5. Such wonderful finds. The dress is gorgeous and that table, looks like a music table. So beautiful.
    Have a blessed day.

  6. I love flea markets but they are not very common here.

  7. You are like me always coming home with something that wasn't on the list. LOL By the way I love your watercolor of the covered bridge and I agree with what you said.
