My friend Cindy had told me about the Alameda Flea Market that happens the first Sunday of each month but I hadn't gotten a chance to visit it until yesterday. I met Char and we took off to meet up with Cindy and Stephanie. I actually tried to back out as I had paperwork to prepare for the accountant (this means taxes, ugh!) but I am delighted I didn't give in to that drudgery and went to the flea market instead. It ended up being a beautiful day and I was successful in my finds.
But first let me share this with you: A while back my sister had sent me a link to someone's blog (I can't remember who it was or I would give them credit for this idea) who described herself as a flea market junkie and proceeded to post "the things I didn't buy". I thought this was hilarious so yesterday I decided to take some pics of the things I didn't buy. And here they are!
I did not buy the hat with the funny balls and plastic leaves on it nor the fake fruit ornamented with frosted sparkling sand.
I did not buy the iron boy fishing statue to adorn my yard.
I did not buy the sing-along dance machine even though I thought it was pretty cool!
I did not buy the fake furry jacket for fear that someone might think I was Yeti.
I did not buy the wood and metal flying duck plaque ensemble.
I did not buy any of these bird related items.
I did not buy this pink fuzzy poodle pad thingy.
I did not buy these giants concrete yard (?) ornaments.
I did not buy this gold flying woman statuette.
I did not buy this fake velvet lounge act jacket.
I did not buy these pajama pants made from old chenille bedspreads, but really now I wish I had as I bet they would be really comfy (much to my husband's dismay I'm sure).
I did not buy this chenille bedspread robe to go with the pajama pants.
And I did not buy this bunny on a stick decoration even though Easter is coming.
My next post I'll write about the things I did buy.
