Saturday was my day for the Trade Day Flea Market here in my little part of Fort Worth. It started out good, got there to set up and it was just coming light. The heat wasn't so bad. I could take my time getting things in order, it wasn't suppose to start until nine. Of course some people always come early and then you have the ones that are driving by and see a sale and you can hear the brakes squeling. Those are the ones like me. I always brake for a good sale.
As the people started coming things started selling and as long as we were in the shade it wasn't too bad. We didn't have as many people there buying as at most flea markets, but I can't complain, I had a very profitable day. It was really hot after around noon and by the time I was packing up it was horrible. Think the temp. was 102 or 103.
I finally got home about 4:30, took a cool shower and hit the bed. Stayed there all day Sunday and haven't done much today. With RA the heat and getting tired can really do a number on you. But if I rest enought I'll bounce back. Should be okay tomorrow.
I took more pictures of the dealers I'll try to post later and we had an Elvis impersonator. He was cute and sang pretty good. I know that poor guy was dripping wet by the time his show was over. All in all it was a real good day.
Thanks for coming Lori, I enjoyed your visit. Smiles, Pat
Thank you for stopping by to meet me and hear about My Tattered Elegance.
My name is Pat, I'm a self taught artist, junker and creative person. I paint on nearly any surface, make ribbon roses one petal at a time, do ribbon embroidery, form roses from the oven baked clay. I also do some sewing for my home.
My favorite pasttime is not going shopping at the mall, it is going shopping at a good yard sale, or fantastic estate sale or a big flea market. The thrill of finding that special something is better than chocolate (and I love chocolate). I'm even one of those ladies that stop and load my car with the cast offs on the side of the curb. Some of the curb trash becomes my best finds.
I'm at home here in Fort Worth, Texas and love it. I have a married daughter, Kim. She doesn't have any children only three cats. I also have a married son, Kent. He has two sons, Bryce and camron. Also one daughter, Payton. She is the one that comes and paints with me. And she loves to use my beads to make jewelry. Grand-daughters are so much fun.
