So guys, I finally went to the East Avon flea market this past weekend. I've been wanting to go for a long time but it never jived with our calendar. The whole family headed down to Avon for an early morning adventure. It actually was fun for the entire family. Truth! Some of the vendors are total characters! The air smells of freshly baked donuts. And the wares are plentiful. It's a feast for the senses.
Here are some photos I snapped with my phone.
I thought this would be fun hanging on a wall in a boys room! It was big.
I'm a sucker for an old chair...especially one that's painted red and super shabby.
A galvanized tub. Lots of possibilities!
Sure most people would love the yellow ware in the left of this picture (me too) but I was really digging the bird dish. It reminds me of the pigeon from our favorite Mo Willems books.
There was something for everyone...here are my kids drooling over lego sets.
I don't know who Duke is but I do know his donuts are amazing.
I snapped the picture below for my sister-in-law, who is a big "Everybody Loves Raymond" fan. No offense to the artist (says something about the beholder) but all I could think of was that episode on ELR where Marie presents her sculpture. I know it's not even remotely similar but it made me laugh.
Finally, there were lovely little stools scattered about. I don't know why I have a stool obsession. That sounds wrong. Anyway, the little black one was 5 bucks!
And after all that, here is what I came home with...
|It's a vintage locomotive toy for my son's room...$4.|
If you're bored this Sunday, you should flee to the market in Avon. ;)
Note from Mrs. Williams: That's my kind of family outing! Just wondering? Did the prices seem reasonable?
Note from Mrs. K.: Yes, I thought so. Of course all the vendors are different and some are more willing to negotiate than others. Depends on what you're looking for. Guess you'll just have to go and see for yourself! Wanna join me?
