***Elhorn Wisconsin Flea Market ~ June 2010***

Due to early morning rain drops... ~  I decided not to do an "early-buy-in" AND opted to "ride with my husband"...  - That's right, it means taking only ONE CAR... OMG!!! - Was I thinking clearly or what???  The weather was DRY upon arrival at 7 am...  It only rained for a total of 45 minutes during the entire flea market day...   Lots of "dark-cloud" sky watching chased many a dealer away with early pack-up...  Jeff and I stayed till 2 p.m.  We stuffed the car full ~ one cabinet is being delivered!!!   Overall, it was a good buying day...   (click on pics to enlarge)


Just minutes before the general public was let in at 7 a.m.


Just AwEsoMe complete SHaBBy Garden Set...
GREAT PaTiNa!*!*! 



I saw lots of "cottage furniture"...  This was a Sweet Piece!*!*!

  3. I think we were both sitting here blogging and thinking parallel thoughts tonight - (go check out my blog and cue the Twilight Zone music). I took a nearly identical picture of the two white chairs, also.
    LOVE the door...you are one lucky girl to have such a good guy to carry the loot for you!
    It was great to see you as always, and hope you are feeling better.

    P.S. Will you be shopping in IA next weekend?
