Shupp's Grove

This friday was the only one that Shupp's Grove Flea Market was going to be open, at least until after my August vacation. So, I took the morning and went up there - this is my favorite flea market. I've been here a few times and it's always hit or miss as with any flea market.

But the things this flea market has that tops so many others are:
(1) the variety of merchandise - everything from antique furniture, flowers, vintage clothes, vintage and handmade jewelry, gemstones, paintings, and so much more.
(2) special days that focus on Paintings or Clothing & Jewelry or whatever topic - check their schedule so you can go on a day that is most likely to have more of what you're looking for.
(3) this flea market is in the woods - not a parking lot or hot building - so it's a great way to walk around in the outdoors and shade while you shop.

I only spent $4.50 this trip:
$1.00 - coffee
$1.00 - vintage rhinestone dangle earrings
$0.50 - vintage necklace to deconstruct
$2.00 - peanut butter ripple icecream cone
but it was such a fantastic day to walk around.
