ChiPPy!-SHaBBy! FLEA MARKET FINDS!*!*!

With my longing for SPRING, and the Spring/Summer Show Contracts coming in, ~  All I can think about is **WHITE TENT TIME**   I'm feeling desperate for an OUTDOOR FLEA MARKET FIX!!!   -  I've now resorted to going through pics - from long ago - of FaB Finds & Great Selling Times from a DAY @ THE OUTDOOR FLEA...


You can shop SHaBBies INDOORS - but there is AbSoLuTley NOTHING LIKE BEING ON-THE-HUNT - OUTDOORS, Surrounded by a Sea-Of-White TENTS" - SUNSHINE, & the Aroma of Food!*!*!  That DEFINITELY is **My SHaBBy Bliss**


FaB Finds from A DAY @ The Flea - 
Some Years Back...




 Whenever I get home from "ChiPPy!-SHaBBy! ShoPPing", I almost always take pics of my FINDS - Either after unloading OR while they're still in the van... 



 I love "looking back" on ShaBBies I've netted!!!
Some were keepers... Some long gone...




Lot's of W*H*I*T*E on this trip!*!*!




2011 ChiPPy!-SHaBBy! Booth at
Viva la Cottge - ViNtaGe Market Show
Sister Bay, Wisconsin
This is one of my Most FaVoRite Shows!!!
Who wouldn't LoVe being up in Door County!*!*!
In 2011, Flea Market Style Magazine, voted this as one of THE BeSt Small Outdoor Shows in Wisconsin...




Although I've netted a few select ViNtaGe Finds during this Winter Season, I still long for the Sighting of Those WHITE TENTS  ~ in pursuit of my
 ChiPPy!-SHaBBy! Bliss...

I'm hopeful that I might SEE a few WHITE TENTS 
Next Weekend ~ @ Kane County's First Flea
 of the 2012 Season...  
So for now...

  7. LOVE all of the chippy shabby stuff you found! We are kindred spirits as I like to look for the same stuff to sell at the two shops that I am in. Hope this spring provides plenty of white tents for you to have fun in!
