Satuday Flea Markets and a Little Pink

I am posting this as part of Pink Saturday.  And while the pink in this post is scattered about, there certainly are a lot of Saturdays!  To see who else is posting for Pink Saturday, go here.  And as always, many thanks to Bev for her support of this lovely group!
 A REQUEST:
Dear readers, would you please let me know, in the comment section, what you think of the size of the photos.   It's ok on my computer screen, but what about yours?  Thanks for the help!

I have always loved attending flea markets.  And until 3 summers ago, I was there to buy.  But starting in 2011, I set up with my friend Amy and tried selling at flea markets.  To be honest, selling is not as much fun as buying.  It requires tables and tents and boxes of stuff and getting up at 5 am and worrying about the weather.  There is also the packing and unpacking and listening to what people think of you and your stuff.  Sometimes buyers are lovely and then sometimes. . . 
But always the other dealers are wonderful!  They are a community I am glad to be a part of!
This summer we got to be next to friends at one of the fleas and that was a lot of fun!

 Setting up with French linens.

My Booth

 

Amy's booth.
She curates a collection of fabulous jewelry and displays to perfection!



Button, button, who's got the button?

I have a decided weakness for buttons and love showing them off in these wonderful dishes.
Moving them around and in and out of my car does tends to spill them all sorts of places!

Washi Tape, my favorite thing to sell!



Some of my artwork

It really is fun to look at these photos and notice how much of this stuff has sold this year!
Last Saturday we did our last flea market set up.
And as always we end with a hug and the words, "Another excellent flea market adventure!"
Until next year. . .

The photos of the flea market are wonderful and fun. Loved it all but the buttons appealed to me the most. I know it is hard work but the fun of the hunt is always a thrill. Good luck.

Your photos are the perfect size.

Never had flea market booth, but have many garage sales. I am worn out from them, so I can see how the market would be worse.

Hi Marilee! Your photos look great---the larger the better, in my opinion! :) I love flea markets and it's been forever since I've gone to one! I'm inspired! Hope you have a lovely weekend.

Happy Pink Saturday, Marilee. fyi - the photos look awesome.

We are having a garage sale next weekend. It seems we have never ending stock of things to sell from our own house.

Love your booth and all of your goodies.

great photos of the market tour, with everyone having different sized screens these days it is hard to get the size just right

markets are a fun place for discovering little treasurers, new friends and a loose button or two
