IT'S LATE, BUT FLEA MARKET PICTURES

Here are my pictures from the 15 Mile Antique Alley Flea Market. As everyone here knows it rained that weekend. Friday was pretty and I did very well. I started setting everything out early Friday morning and people came and started buying. I just knew it wasn't going to rain. I had been saying we were going to have a good rain free weekend, but I guess the Lord has something better in store for me. Anyway he gave me a great Friday and I got to go to some of the booths at Whipp Farms. I met Pam, from The Altered Muse and saw Debbie English. She sells things for little girls. Clothes and furniture. She had her best weekend. These girls had tents and the rain didn't hurt them. I also met a Leigh, she is a painter and tatter. I ordered some sun bonnet sue girls tatted in pink. She also sent a pink heart. She does needle tatting, and I had a needle kit that teaches you to tat and I am learning. So far I have done two rings. I have a set of two books and they said when I finished the second book I would be able to tat any pattern I wanted too. I hope that is right.

Right now, I am redoing my studio. I have painted all the furniture in there except for one shelf. I am sorting all my lace and fabrics. I have been through nine grocery bags full of laces the past couple of days. I want it all set up so I can start doing some crazy quilting. Later I will show some pictures.









Hope all of you had a wonderful weekend.
Hugs, Pat

I stopped by your blog today. Looks like fun. I was an avid painter until I discovered the joys of writing.

All that great stuff to look at. I too am redoing my studio. The rains this past weekend and once again a flooded basement were too much. So it's upstairs and a fresh new start.

What a lot of great treasures - real shame about the rain though.
Good luck with all that sorting out!

Hi Pat. I've been thinking about you now that things are a bit more normal here.
Love all the pics. Flea markets are so much fun or at least I think so. Buying or selling they are intersting. Hope you do well this spring and summer.

Pat,
Great to see your post. I really miss hearing from you. I was out of town that weekend. Looks like I missed some good stuff. I was worried for you when I heard it rained that weekend. Maybe next time I can have a booth.
Blessings,
Carolyn

Pat,
I am so bummed it rained that weekend. I wanted to come so badly, & seeing all those wonderful frames, & tables & sewing drawers just makes me want to cry. I'm glad you had a good first day tho. I wanna see that studio & 9 bags of lace. Wow, that is what I call a well stocked studio. LOL Hope you guys had fun the other day. Can't wait to get together again. Lisa

Hi Pat, I wish I could have come to the sale ~ I have never been and someday I will just have to plan ahead. I love tatting! There are not many tatters out there and it is truly a talent and I know that with your talents you will be doing large pieces soon.
