Flea Market

This kid wanted to go to The Elephant Trunk Flea Market
for her birthday jaunt.
So we picked up Gidget and off we went.
It's always a fun outing, although today was HOT!
These lovely sun bathing dolls greeted us at the entrance.
Fun and creepy at the same time.

 A pile of action figures.

The kid browsing.

White glassware.

Children's tractors.

A bongo drum.

A view up the aisle

A baby carriage with a mexican hat!

Flamingoes, that color pink always gets my attention.

A unicycle.

Gidget looking at trunks.

This trunk had beautiful initials on the top.

A mermaid!!

 They also had a farm stand.

The kid bought a sewing box.

Gidget bought some fabric with monkeys on it.

I bought a fabulous quilt top that just needs a bit of repair
before quilting it.  It's got great colors and fabric.
I think I have the perfect vintage bed sheet for the back.
Maybe I'll try practicing my free motion quilting on this one.

On another note. . . . 
This weeks sewing was making a superman cape
for my nephew, the little man.
I am going to see him in a week!
I'm not used to sewing with this kind of material,
it ain't easy!

So Happy Birthday Kid!
Fun day, I hope you all had a fun day too!


  1. Wish I'd been there. I would have filled up my trunk. That sewing box is a classic!

  2. What a lot of fun - you never know what you are doing to find at markets like that!
