I rarely have much time to Shop-The-Flea when I'm setting up to sell...Such was the case a few weekends ago at The Elkhorn Flea in Wisconsin!  HOWEVER ~ I had about 20 minutes before the gates opened to the public &,"luck was on my side"!*!*!  
This RARELY Happens!!!

and we have "4-Fully Stuffed SToRaGe UniTs"
 **I'm on what you would say **Buying-Restriction**
2-Items were my limit, & they needed to be somewhat small...
 Vintage French Gathering Basket!!! 
Just LoVed it's Naturally Acquired Crude Time-Worn PaTiNa!!!
One-Of-A-Kind ViNtaGe
Just the way I like it!!!

B*A*C*K from SeLLiNg SHaBBies - ELKHORN FLEA - Wisconsin

~** THanK Y*O*U **~ 
for finding me in my "New Indoor Booth Space"
at this PAST WEEKEND'S August Elkhorn Flea Market in Wisconsin...

Inside...  -Or-  Outside...  Booth???
After 2 consecutive years of challenging weather at this particular market, we opted to NOW SELL INSIDE a building.  Upon arriving shortly before 5am on Sunday morning, we were "thankful" being inside a building - it was RAINING...  HOWEVER, after a couple hours - the weather turned, making for a Fab OUTDOOR DAY to shop the flea!
Y*E*S, we did so very much miss being OutDoors!!!
Despite having "2 open entrances" to our building, we missed feeling the breeze...
 people watching...  & most of all, seeing what finds were rolling by on everyone's carts!!!

 Having a full back wall was nice to hang items on, 
but I still missed HANGING Shabbies from the Outside Tent...
