Since I didn't take a new picture of the Village Flea Market, I used the one I took when I posted about my trip back in June. I never go there to spend a lot of money, it's more about looking around and watching people. Flea markets seem to be a great equalizer, even more than Wal-Mart. You can, and will, see people from all walks of life, perusing the tables and booths. They pick over what others deemed to be worthless or unwanted. They bargain and haggle, and it's always fun to watch. Regardless of how much money someone has on them, they never want to pay the ticket price. It's all about getting a $5 item for less than $3. And sometimes, but not very often, it's about finding an item that is worth way more than the sticker price. It's that search for hidden treasure that appeals to almost everyone who heads to a flea market or antique fair.
I managed to take a few random pictures of things that, for whatever reason, caught my eye.
|You got to love the warriors fighting over the woman who has her back turned.|
|Am I the only one that's a little creeped out by the blank stare?|
|Can anything else fit into this corner?|
|I really, really want to see this Justin Bieber lamp in someones house.|
|You got to love these boots.|
|Can't they put expressions onto a mannequin's face? The blank stare is creepy once again.|
|My mom actually bought one of these painted skulls the last time she was in town, except hers has a wolf on it. You too can have one for $93.|
