Monday's trip to the Webster Flea was lots of fun...
The day was absolutely gorgeous...
..a cool morning in the high 50's
and a beautiful afternoon in the mid 70's.
Mr. Flea came with me!
It was nice to have his company and have a driver...
BUT... having him there meant that we had to stop at
every single booth with a musical instrument...
...and spend at least 10 minutes whenever we came across a guitar.
He also wanted to spend time in the "non-antique" section...
looking for a baseball cap and a leather wallet.
I have no patience for that type of flea market.
But...fair is fair.
And...I did get a giant size chocolate ice-cream cone out of the deal.
Chocolate is the only flavor as far as I am concerned.
Not Mr. Flea.
He tried kumquat.
That's right...a kumquat ice cream cone.
He claims it was delicious!
I usually never eat much food at the fleas...
...or dally around.
I'm in...and out... pretty darn quick.
Looking solely for my kind of thing...
and once I've seen all that's to be seen that's old, antique or junky...
I'm out of there...
We stayed longer than usual on Monday.
Not because there was that much more to be seen...
It was just due to our different agendas.
he was a good sport...
...and we had a great time together.
I loved this blue enamel milk pail.
But...I'm too cheap...
...and the dealer wanted too much.
And, as Mr. Flea pointed out...
I already have a boat load of blue enamel ware.
That's the other problem when Mr. Flea comes along.
He's just so sensible.
Why didn't I buy one of these?
Never too many keys...
OK, I'll stop right here.
Check out the bullet holes.
I actually did better this week finding treasures
at a little trash to treasure sale in Dad's retirement village
as well as the local thrift stores.
Hope your week is going well friends!
Thank you for all your kind comments!
And a big welcome to new friends, followers and passers by!
So nice to go on a foray with you! LOVE that green glass! When I shop with
OOps--When I shop with my husband I always have to hurry!
Perfect weather, hubby by your side and lots of good things to look at and maybe buy....love that chair Laura.
The trouble with husbands is that they have, as you say, their own agenda and, they just don't understand sometimes !!!
Sounds as if you are both enjoying yourselves. Much love. XXXX
Yes, I'm the same way! For my Hubby it's the tool section. I rather go alone but, I do love his company. I usually get lunch out of the deal!! Not bad for a afternoon.
Have a great week,
You didn't even take a lick of the kumquat? Now I'll never know if kumquat ice cream is actually good. Guess I'll just have to trust Mr. Flea's judgement, but seriously, can I?
I say just tell Mr. Flea to keep his phone on-he goes his way-you go yours. That's how we do it! It works. My husband winds up on the bench or in the truck. Works for me.
Awww, come on--you can't show that fabulous black transferware compote and say SOMething more about it---!?!
I'm with you in that I move very stealthy--in and out. Even when I'm busy taking pictures to share!
Btw--the only person I can go/shop with is my bff. Except we are each other's competition on most EVerything!
Sounds like so much fun...I cannot wait for them to start up here in Maine...Kumquat ice cream...sounds like something hubby would try too...LOL mot me...Black Rasberry for this girl
Love all the silver..:)
YOur post was tons of fun...it has been a cold winter and I can't wait til our fleamarkets start up here in April.
Love that big pan of keys!
I always love what you feature sweet Laura!!! Oh my, those apothecary jars are so wonderful...the giant piece of tranferware, my goodness, that makes my heart stop!! So much wonderfulness ~ thank you so much for sharing it all with us. I hope you are doing so good, hugs and love, Dawn
I almost went on Monday but talked myself out of it. I kind of wish I went, oh well, next Montday maybe.
I think you would like our shop~Art Angels Antique Market in South Orlando. It's worth the trip, I think!
I'm with you, I would rather go by myself or with my BFF/partner. My hubby just doesn't get it. It looks like you enjoyed the day!
I love to find treasures at flea markets etc. The black and white transferware bowl is my favorite.
Sensible + flea market. Does not compute!!!
I'll take 3 of those turquoise glass floater balls please.
I love flea markets too. Great photos! I'm starting a new linky party on friday, hope you can join us with your wonderful ideas. Love your blog.
Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, I actually laughed out loud - ANGRY BIRDS!!!!!!!!!!!!! Pretty funny sense of humor on whoever had that table...glad you had a wonderful day! We stared at sand through wind, here in Vegas. Happy Thursday - Tanya
I 'm loving all your finds.. and the very amusing Mr. Flea!
That pearl handle silver knife is wonderful!
How sweet that Mr. Flea went with you...but what a drag :>) I usually send my man to the books. He can sit and read about war all day long. I'm longing for fleas to start here. Enjoy your time,
Love those blue glass balls but $10each? I am waaaaaaaay too cheap I guess.
Such a nice outing, thanks for letting me tag along.
And I am with ya on the chocolate -kumquat? sounds entirely too healthy for ice cream!
Ice cream would be the bribe I needed to let hubby come along. I really loved the upholstered chair.
Can't go with the Mr.He is not into antiquing.But my daughter is.It has been a long time since I have been to a flea.Looking at your photos I must go soon.
i would have bought ALL the silver and ALL the keys !!!..oh i need the weather to change here and fleas to start again....!! argh !!!
and...personally...i too have NO patience for the 'garage sale' section of the flea....cant be bothered unless it's a really nice day and i just want to be outside.
and....i really prefer to go by myself..i know ..bad...but i am too anxious...cant stop at booths with nothing for me...need to move on...i get too antsy...i walk ahead......
sounds like a great day !
...cracking up over the angry birds; I can always use white peaceful ones for my Christmas tree! Marketing! Ha! thanks for the virtual tour~
You probably already know what got my attention...oh yeah that blue enamel milk pail. Oh, and I would had enjoyed the chocolate ice cream too.
It's always nice to "walk" with you at flea market Laura!!! and it make me smile thinking of you and Mr. Flea at Market together!!! :) Love
I still can't get over the fact that there is a flea market on Monday? I would love that here in CA. Twice a month I flea with my husband. He is a great sport. He is my cart man and scout. I too LOVE that chair. Thanks for sharing- looks like a fun day!
LOL...that Angry Birds -table! Wonderful!
Your blog is full of wonderful impressions
Love the bottle caps and that gorgeous chair..swoon!
Come by! I am having a giveaway for a copy of Flea Market Style magazine!
Have a fab day :)
Webster as in Webster Florida? oh my dh has been trying to get me to go there and I've resisted but after this post I'll be going.
Oh my ~ what eye candy. I would be there all day just looking ;-)
Sounds like a great day. I have a good bud who I go antiquing with occasionally and I love her dearly but oh my she moves slowly!!! When we go to CA we have dozens of shops to get to and she wants to explore each one to the very deepest corner and I am already by the front door saying "uh, c'mon we have to keep moving" lol
but any shared day with one we love is always good. :D
and Oh those keys!
Oh what fun! I love when the misters go too, but so right...it changes everything! Lucky so lucky you live near this...I would be in heaven!
Hi Laura, That market looks like so much fun! The ET opens Sunday!!!!! Don and I walk in together, kiss each other and off we go....in different directions. Then we meet after wards for breakfast and talk about all of the treasures we found. Well, mostly I found;)Hope you found some fabulous things. Have a great weekend:)
Capers of the vintage vixens
I'll take that black transferware compote please! and it's chipped so must be cheap...haha
Now missy I know someone that just loves the dollar table! and has to be pried away. Just kidding who doesn't like the dollar table?
Glad you guys bonded at the flea!
I like flea markets too and all your finds. You share fantastic pix but I like most chair and green glass so much.
Your photos are great. Love the keys.
Oh Laura, how could you leave those birds ???
I NEVER walk around with my husbond when we very seldom takes off together for flea`s...we take each our own way- and meets up for a talk, or to go home :) that way we both are satisfied with the day,lol.
Happy week-end to you.
Read on Pinterest: 'To go for shopping with your husband is like going hunting with warden'
Wish I could flea market with you. You have my style. Go in, look, focus, buy and leave. I hate to dally too. It looks like there were a lot of treasures there! Someday...
I don't have room for one more chair in our house, but if I did.....that upholstered one would have come home with me - and the small table beside it, of course!
The blue and white pottery, too.
I have my own pace when shopping thrift stores. It's just best for me to go it alone. Hubby DOES come along sometimes but brings a book in case our paces don't match :)
You are so funny Laura, you remind me of me!
I like the small tasrh to treasure sales best too, you can't beat the prices!!
LUV Your Photos! Thanks for sharing them.
My heart is swooning over all the keys! Great pics!
