St. Regis Flea Market!

I have been so busy the last week.  I went to a flea market, tons of garage sales, and barns looking for things to restock the market with.  I found a lot of good stuff!  Make sure you bring your trailer to our market on June 19th! 

I also found the rental of my dreams!  I only have phone pictures, so I'll wait until I have better ones to show you.  Lets just say its a 1908 farmhouse, has 3-5 acres, SEVERAL outbuildings....it's DREAMY.

We are meeting with the landlord there tonight...I think she's probably sick of me.  I kept telling her "oh I can NOT believe this house...this is just incredible!  It's me to a T!"  when I called her... 

I also called back to tell her "Don't give this to anyone else! We will pay you money tonight, we'll sign papers tonight!"

Then I texted her to say "I can't stop thinking about the house, I am so excited!"

I hope she shows up today.....with me phone stalking her and all.

I even gave the stink eye to a family that was driving by to look at it while we were...I was thinking about telling them it was rented.  Or slashing their tires.  But I'm sure that wouldn't have gone over too well with the new landlord. 

Anyway....I also have a 2006 Subaru Outback that i named Black Betty...well, 2 days ago she decided to say goodbye to life.  She quit on me!  The engine is totally dead!  a 2006!  Of course the warranty was up 30,000 miles ago.  SO there's that dead horse to kick.....

This flea market we went to on Saturday had about 150 vendors.  It decided to rain, so about half of those vendors decided not to show up!  Such a bummer...but here's some highlights from the day!



I can't wait to have kids so I can put these bears in their room!  Even though they have a hint of creepiness about them...
Speaking of vintage creepy, check out this old ad!


I'm sorry but this image is going to haunt me for a long time!  Are those weiners on the table next to him?  Really?!
So yeah...back to the flea market...



This was a fun conglomeration to pick through!


I'm always fascinated with boxes...and the yellow! So cute!



Dang...I should go back and get this so I can flintstone it around in style while Black Betty is out of commission...


Expect lots of these too....my newest obsession.


I thought this was a fun little picture...so much good stuff here!!!

This is the sign on the outside of Mr. Whiskers Kettle Corn.  This guy was hilarious!


This is Mr. Whiskers himself.  He also plays Santa in the winter.  Regarding his portrayal of Santa, he said "I hate kids, but then as soon as I heard how much they were gonna pay me, I said shoot!  I love kids!  Where do I get changed?"

HA.

Mom.  Isn't she beautiful?  That big fella she's smoochin' was pretty cute too!!

Let me introduce my new friends from left to right:  Onion Chives, Boxwood Basil, Cilantro, Lavendar, and Rosemary!  They're such a great addition to the kitchen!  I can't wait to make some pesto!  Now I really need to clean those windows....but I probably won't ;)

And these guys....I love succulents...


Anyway, we had a great weekend!  I better get ready to go meet the potential landlords....I can't even sit still I'm so excited about it!!!!!  Seriously!  I need to take it down a notch.

So if you're coming to the Farm Chicks show...make sure and find me! I have a special surprise for you....

Wow - so much cool stuff. I wish we had flea markets and barn sales over here - I've no idea why we don't.
My husband has a teddy bear just like the ones in your photo - he's had it since he was a baby (it's 43 years old) and as a child he called it Norman! - you can see why I named our kids!). It was on Seth's bed until last year - I'd been trying to sneak it up the attic for years!
Good luck with the house - I hope you get it - you could even hold a VWM sale on your land by the sound of it - how cool!!
Fingers crossed for you
