Today I'm attempting to get to Florida - I thought maybe it would be all the bad weather in the South that would impact my flights today, but instead it's a mechanical problem. We were all settled on the plane but when I realized I was going to miss my connection in Charlotte for Sarasota, I decided to get off the plane, and fly tomorrow instead. As I was waiting for my luggage to come off the plane, I changed my mind again and decided to start over and get back on this same flight and take a later flight from Charlotte to Tampa. Now I'm waiting - still in Buffalo and thinking that I might not even make the flight to Tampa! On to Plan C or D, I guess!
In the meantime, I thought I'd better post about the flea market adventure that I had in California a couple weeks ago. I've been waiting for the package to get here with all my finds in it, but there's been delays on that, so here we go anyway. I'll sneak pictures of the goodies on here eventually.
I've always wanted to go to one the big flea markets in the Los Angeles area but haven't been there on the right Sundays. Even though I was missing a day at the trade show, I couldn't resist the opportunity to check it out. I didn't have anything that I was looking for in particular - it's fun to see what will pop up that I didn't know I needed! Come browse with me...
Valerie pointed out Chris O'Dowd, who I didn't recognize, so I whipped out my camera. Jeremy was impressed!
(Love all this pastel glassware but the prices were too high for me.)
No, Valerie, don't eat the whole thing!
I love this new beaded purse! It's very similar to the one at Paper Tales that is used for display - I've been tempted, along with a lot of other people, to steal it, but now I've found my own! A funny story though. I've wanted a purse like this so much that I thought to myself that I would be willing to pay $75 for it. I asked the lady at the booth how much it was and could swear that she said $125. I offered $75 and she turned to me and said, "What did you say?" I repeated my offer, thinking that she thought it was shockingly low. She said that the price was $20, so I quickly asked if she would take $15! Of course, she laughed and said $20. Man, I'm a good bargain shopper, aren't I? I offer $75 for something that is only $20! We all had a good laugh about it and I have my new purse! (When I get it in my box coming from CA!)
It's beaded and reversible! LOVE!
Another thing I got that I love is this scrapbook - love the pink! I think I should scrapbook my teen years in this! ($7) It's about 11x14".
My other purchase that I'm excited about is the pink coat that I'm holding in this picture. I'd like to get it shortened so it doesn't look like a bathrobe, but it's in very good shape!
I also got a print of a baby that is like the ones I collect. So sweet - I'll share a picture eventually.
I'm about to head back home - my flight has been canceled, and I'm going to be back here to try again tomorrow.
Stay warm - next post from Florida!
