But back to the flea-ing...Due to the weather a lot of the vendors didn't make the trip, and those who did set-up on the late side since the morning was all soggy.
We were expecting guests so I only did a quick late morning run through, also reminding myself that I should be saving my money for a big road trip I have in the works with Jean Martha. I only spent $10, and that's including the money I spent on an ice tea in a container the size of my head.
Believe it or not I've had a tough time finding a yard stick for my little sewing projects, so when I saw a stack of vintage ones for $3 each I grabbed the one with the sassiest typography. It's hard to get a good shot of a yard stick, so here's a little peek:
I also picked up two transferware egg cups ($5 for the pair). Not because I plan on making myself a fancy brunch any time soon, but because I wanted something to collect the bits and bobs gathering in my bathroom vanity. They're perfect!
(Design Sponge also just did a little feature on egg cups, using them as succulent planters. Click over to have a look-see.)
There are a couple of flea markets nearby this Saturday: The Atlantic Highlands Historical Society one, wisely postponed from last week due to aforementioned floods and pestilence, and one in Allaire Village. I'm heading to Allaire where my vintage sugar sack connection is setting up shop (she bailed on Ocean Grove). I've never been to a flea there so I'm looking forward.
Any good fleas in your neck of the woods?
