New Flea Market

Went over to a new flea market that has opened near my house…

Out front… there are pumpkins, gourds, Mums, vegetables and fruit for sale…

What they had… looked fresh and very pretty!

I bought pretty Yellow Pears that tasted delicOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAious!

I had been the day before and ordered a thin leather bracelet for myself…

I hardly ever buy anything for me… but, the price was right and she offered to make it to my specifications

Paula measured my wrist and promised it would be ready today… and it was!…

A World War ll Veteran of 91 years of age was helping make a few items… Maybe her father???… I should have asked…130929_001

He remembered me and started looking for my bracelet in the basket of things completed…

It fit perfectly as he insisted on snapping it on my wrist…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

So sweet!

Paula’s son makes the bigger pieces of purses, baskets, trinket boxes, belts, etc. …

She makes things like the earrings, key chains and bracelets out of his scraps… Nothing going to waste… but, it’s also why she is so reasonable on her prices…

I learn a lot about people as I browse and talk… asking a few questions…

Like… if I could take their picture… son not there… but, they agreed with no hesitation…

I told them I write a blog… and love to tell stories about people I meet… and let others know of things I find

I do believe they were quite happy !

I also talked to another lady that makes beautiful primitive wood items and hand sewn items…

She told me the prices on renting a booth…

I have done this a few years back… and I’m not sure if I want to try that again or not… but, the information was helpful

$3.00 must have been the magic price today

My Pears and Bracelet… cost just that!… $3.00 each…

Not too bad… and I will enjoy both!
