Things I Didn't Buy at the Flea Market...Boy Panties, Puppies, and More!

I'm lucky to live in Florida, the land of perennial flea marketing and yard sales. But I'm taking a flea market and thrift store break while I pack, clean, and price boxes of merchandise at the homestead. I'm proud to say I've nearly finished organizing a moving a lifetime's worth of finds! I thought I'd look back at recent flea memories to get my flea fix in the meantime. When I make it back I'll be organized and ready for it! Fun times!


What have you left behind at Thrift Stores or Flea Markets lately? I am forbidden to enter! But at least I have hundreds of photos to look back on. By now I could open my own flea market stock image site...

  2. I need to bring my camera along more often. I haven't done that in a long time. Great photos. Makes me want to visit Florida. The tourist association should be paying you ;)

    1. They should, I'm all for that gesture! I never leave the house without a camera, you never know what you'll see that needs to be documented.

    1. Yes it was, he wanted like $25 or more which leaves almost no meat to the bone for a reseller. Boo!

    1. Self control is easier when prices are sky high. That and you already have boxes and boxes to organize, photograph, etc. The needlepoint was hard to leave, I'll admit!

  6. i love the fan and the chair. and the snowball joke too - LOL. we have a flea market where i live but it always seems overpriced to me. there's not a lot of vintage stuff - more like dollar store stuff that someone's trying to make two dollars on - so i tend to avoid them and only go to thrift shops. but maybe i need to be more open minded and check back or check other areas. you've inspired me!

    1. It's always worth it to thoroughly explore all your venues, you never know which flea market in town can be a hidden treasure trove. I always find lots of vintage at local flea markets.

    1. Snowballs would have come home with me if it wasn't so water damaged.
