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.

Hi Pat,
Thanks for stopping by my blog! It was fun to see your sale and see all the cute stuff for sale. wish I lived closer.
Did you sell the cake stand? I have one just like it. I won't sell it because it was a family piece and I use it.

Looks like some good stuff on the tables. That heat can really do a number on ya. Be careful.
Our family is heading to Big D on Aug 12-16. My son is going to QUAKECON at the Gaylord Hotel. Not sure how far FT is from D.

Stay Cool, Candy
