last night we made plans to go to the flea market today..The last visit;t was a hot July day & we both faded out& left for home early,planning to return once the weather got better for hubby to push my wheelchair around for r hours.Before we left he got himself a dozen pairs of sports socks for only ( $3_ and also 4 pairs of plaid otton briefs, also $3_I saw several racks of Native American earring thatI liked but agreed to wait for moreaccoodating weather& another visit.today was to be that visit
At 0200 hrs( 2AM)we woke up to the sound of heavy rainfall, & immediately realized that the outdoor flea market would be flooded & muddy.
We both got some more zzzzz's & our kitties impatiently allowed us old humans to get our much needed rest, trusting they would be fed breakfast "pretty soon", typically 7AM!The rain stopped @ 10AM; the sun shone brilliantly too late for the vendors to arrive& set up their tables& racks for business Their & our day of flea market business was past & hubby apologized for my disappointment( no fault lt of his) I smiled& suggested"another week might be another chance for me.The last time one vendor had racks of naïve American "dream catchers" woven from fine threads in colors to go w/ several of my fall silky blouses & I hope there are enough in my preffered colors o make bargainingrealistic. I've found when a vendor has 2 racks ( 50+ pairs) bargaining is more likely than when only a very few pairs are left. Sometimes a vendor has only 2 or 3 pairs of vintage earrigs & hubby or I grab them whatever the price!!!!!!!!I have wires in both 14Kt & stelrling silver[ anniversary gift 10+ years ago & hubby faithfully buys drops to fit on both metals. ever since. I have (vintage) drops in garnet , onyx I& pearl that are usually admired by those who see them...( docs, dentist, hair dresser, checkout clerks; friends & myself to be worn by others & usual;ly at a bargain price of less than $20 pair, not counting the wires( gold $95 - $220 & silver $30_Since the wires are mine, bought new I have no concerns about health risks from previous usually deceased owners.
