The April Flea!

I love the flea market! I thought I was going to have to miss it this month, but it turned out they moved it back a week because of Easter. Yes! We headed down to the fairgrounds on Friday. It was a beautiful day! I had my birthday money burning a hole in my pocket.
And after months of talking about it, Kimmie came with us! We had a good time and she was a good sport about me digging through every box of photos in sight! I always worry I'll bore someone who goes with me because I'm pretty slow at the flea, but Kimmie has had lots of practice waiting, since her other half is a record collector.
I found the first Junior Deluxe Edition for my collection I've found in a while. Davy Crockett! I need to update that post! I have over 30 now!
Very realistic!
I wanted that little chalk dog! But I don't have a good place to put it. 
I need this for my future sun room!
Pennants seemed to be everywhere! If this Fantasyland one wasn't in such bad shape (it's hard to tell but it was falling apart) I might have brought it home!
I'm always attracted to decals!
There is something about those shell mantle clocks that I have always liked. So tacky and beautiful. Especially when paired with a kitten plaque and a kind of Elvis.
My favorite colors!
I REALLY want this Chitty Chitty Bang Bang lunchbox! That is one of my favorite movies and I use a lunchbox every day at work! It was out of my price range though, even when the dealer said he could go down 25 bucks! I wish I had gotten a photo of the other side, it had the child catcher on it, who terrified me as a child!

I'll come back and show you what I brought home tomorrow!


  1. So much retro stuff! Love it!

  2. Birthday money and the flea market??? Doesn't get any better than that!
    Can't wait to see what you found.
    Erica :)

  3. too bad about the fantasy land pennant it looks gret

    retro rover

  4. Hehe, I love the Hawaiian Elvis bust. So funny. I remember watching Chitty Chitty Bang Bang as a kid as well. Too bad it was so expensive. My future-father-in-law gave me a Chip N Dale lunchbox that's pretty awesome, since that was one of my faves as a kid.

  5. Nothing better than a day at the flea. I was just talking about the child catcher the other day with Tom. That guy creeps me out too!

  6. I should have bought more junior deluxe books. I want to start a collection for my nephew. Maybe next time.

  7. That telephone table is fantastic!


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave me a comment!
