Still Strolling at the Flea


What can I say?
I lingered long...
...and snapped pics for you along the way.
Enjoy!


















































Guess what?

If the weather is good...
I plan on setting up here next Sunday with my good friend Paula.

Remember Paula's home from the house and garden tour?
She has some amazing pieces she is ready to part with...
...and I have some fun junk to pass along too!

Hope your week is going well!
If you are in the area and not still in Brimfield 
stop by the Elephant's Trunk 
in New Milford, CT
early Sunday morning!
:)

An absolutely amazing flea market...at first I was a bit jealous...but then I thought its probably a good thing its not near me...I would be spending way too much money!! Thanks for the continued stroll :)

I spent Mother's Day morning at the Elephant's Trunk! I thought I recognized a few things in your pics, but didn't realize where you were until the end of the post. I usually hit the Woodbury Flea Market on Saturdays and the Elephant's Trunk on Sundays. Makes for a wonderful weekend! I just need to find a few friends that like getting up early to hit the flea markets!

What an incredible flea this must be! This is not one I've ever set up or shopped at, but it's definitely going on my "must visit" list. ;)
