In one of my recent posts I talked about “flea markets”. Many people outside of the Midwest may not know much, if anything, about these unique places of Americana.
I got out and about today and after a Costco run I was not ready to go back and sit in the trailer. I decided to hit a few local flea markets on the way home and they were just as I remember. Basically, it’s a big building and it is divided into “booths” that you rent or the building owner takes a cut of. You just put all your crap in there and price it. They do all the sales and give you what your cut is.
Unfortunately I do not have enough money to buy and destroy some things I saw today that were, well, racist in nature or of a certain political leaning. Suffice it to say that there was more than enough of that garbage and Elvis stuff to go around.
But, here are a few pictures of some other things I saw.
It is fun to go in these places to look around and see what is for sale. It is really like a free museum but you can buy the exhibits! I came away empty-handed but did keep my eyes peeled for that thing that I just HAD to have.
Just wanted to share a local adventure I went on today.
The weather has been horrible; people think it rains a lot in Seattle – I think Missouri has it beat. I hope to get out and about again as soon as the weather gets better and I can actually enjoy somewhere once I get there!
Until next post…
