My friend Becky modeling one of the many vintage items she has in her booth:

Don't you just love the hat and cape combo:

A few of the other booths -  I'm thinking abt having my own booth at the Spring Show

At this show I got quite a few vintage Christmas Cards at .25 a piece and vintage Christmas Carol Booklets for .50 a piece which I plan on matting and frame some of these.
I also got a small round tray for $5:

We then went to Hara Arenas Indoor flea market
 we did find some thing but nothing overly exciting

I got a piece of jewelry that I will repurpose into new jewelry for $2
and the Geshia Girl hat pin holder for $4 to add to my collection

On the way there we passed a Goodwill Outlet in Riverside -
now that peaked our interest so we stopped
right off the bat we found an armiore for $20.
We have been looking for something for the family room so we can move the nice tv/armoire to the living room and make the family room one for gaming.

We also got a chair for $5 that I will refinish - either black or white

The thing with the the outlets is that they have these rolling tabled with bins, you must sort threw a lot of junk to find stuff - but the great thing is that the prices is by the pound! Household is .79 a pound for 1-49 lb  then .59 Glass ware is .59 lb.

It is a very very dirty job and you have to be careful cuz there are broken pieces.
I found a lot of nice items - but bring gloves and hand sanitzer

I got so many items - I got 10 doiles - for $3
Sign for .30   Basket .30  5 pieces Silverware 1.50

We got all the items in the above 2 pixs for $20


  1. That indoor flea market looks like my kind of place to spend an afternoon. AND, a chair for $5? Woo hoo... you will have to show us the finished product.

  7. There's a GW outlet in Riverside? I need to find their address and go check them out. I've been awol from the C'ville store- I haven't found anything there for months. You got some great prices on the tv cabinet and the chair.
