Sunday Flea Market Treasures

Despite being hotter than Billy Blue Blazes on Sunday, I just can't pass up a Flea Market!  I hadn't really planned on going anywhere this past weekend.  I wanted to hang out at home and get some stuff done around here, but when my sister sent me a text message saying that there was a Flea Market at the McHenry County Fair grounds in Woodstock, Illinois (a hop, skip & a jump from where we are), I just couldn't skip it!

All in all, it was a little disappointing.  Not many dealers for the $5.00 admission fee and of the dealers that were there, they all thought they had gold!  I'm a Flea Market Queen so I know my prices! 

I did manage to find a few treasures though and all for only $10.00!

A couple of pretty hankies, a gorgeous piece of crocheted lace and some fun trim with sequins!  Not bad!  But I really do need to stop buying it and start using it!  My stash runneth over!  'Course, that won't stop me!

You 'Stashaholic' you! We all do it...problem is finding just the space to stash it!
Love the doile and the lace especially.

Of course it won't stop you....heavens forbid! Perhaps it was a bit hot for the dealers ..

I'm behind again - so sorry to see you were without power for so long. That's decidedly scary! And your air conditioner too. Bad things always seem to happen in bunches. On the bright side though, you found some pretty treasures at the flea market.

Hi Pam, I sure know what you mean about an abundant stash! I, too, need to go on a stash diet, but it's so hard to resist a good deal, or a new yarn or..... you know what I mean, right? We are headed your way next week, and I thinke we are going to roast!
