Oh man, I'm getting frustrated with this weather. I went home this weekend & while making plans over 2 weeks ago, there was a first ever monthly flea market to be held, CANCELLED because of the weather. Just too cold. My dad was taking me to a flea market in Detroit, A BUST. 20ish of he 120 booths wee occupied - the weather. It's April 20th & some flakes of snow still fell from the sky! I found nothing this week at the thrift stores. If it wasn't for the antique mall, wouldn't have found a thing... I guess it's possible I worked up the trip a little too much in my head?
I had played with the idea of buying this metal Biohazard/Radioactive lunchbox off eBay awhile ago. About 13 years ago, I used to carry it around (borrowed from a friend) inspired from The Spooky Kids. I paid $6 for the nostalgia.
One of my favourite Pyrex types are space savers. I came across this Golden Acorn Space Saver with lid & cradle. Soooo... did this originally come with a cradle, or what? This was $7.
At the same booth I got these vintage bowling glasses, I thought they were neat. I think that particular booth is going out of business, it was 30% off. There are some newer booths in that place (like 3) that are actually pretty good & would keep me coming back. I have been going there for 3 years I think & some booths have the same merchandise, some in the same spot.
I'll be out shopping next week. I did score some great retail shopping deals in Michigan.. Tiger Balm for $6.50 which is about $10 more in Ontario.
Next time I come down,
I will be hitting up 4 antique malls on the way, 7 thrift stores on the way. 1 antique mall here, 2 thrift stores. Possibly the Detroit Flea, if not, there is a 100+ house street sale (it's famous in the area) & the cancelled flea market is set for the weekend.. but might not make it & one more market on the way home. Something to look forward to!
