Flea Market Fun Day

It's been ages since I've been to the flea market!  At least a few years...  I've been itching to go for a while... And lucky for me Matt said he'll come with me!

I dressed up, just for the occasion:

{Outfit Details}
Jeans: Levi's (Kohls)//Top: Chaps (thrifted)//Scarf: LLT//Hat: thrifted//Purse: Fossil (thrifted)//Oxfords: 8thavethrift on IG 

(It worked for the Style Me April challenge, anway.)

I was like a kid at a candy store... I was super giddy!  I almost skipped to the entrance... almost...

It wasn't as warm as I thought it was going to be, so I had to throw on a sweater.  Bleh.

No surprise here: it didn't take me long to make my first purchase. 
I bought an old Polaroid for $13.  I have no idea if it works, but my goal is to use it for decor.  I just love it to pieces!  Then I bought a few other trinkets and as we were walking around, I received a text from one of my all time favorite people:

Sigh... She always makes me smile!
As soon as she wrote that, I saw this book:
Fun and Fancy.
That's us in a nutshell!

Ha ha!

Just kidding... Kind of...

Friends Far and Near.

I wanted to take this book home with me just because of all the love and support I have received 
from you all...I love you to pieces!

As we continued strolling, Matt found some nostalgic items... Such as these wrestling action figures:

All locked up and in safe keeping.

I did score some more crochet material to make more scarves, ladies!  I know it's been forever since some of you requested one, but... I didn't want to go to the flea market by my lonesome.

I'll share more of my purchases in the next post..
In the meantime, can we just drool over one of my favorite shops?

I even saw an old Gone With the Wind book... Published in the 1920s!  She was only asking $20.  I guess I don't think that's expensive?  I never read the book and only saw the movie once... If it was
The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, I would've been all over it! :)

After our delightful day of prancing around... Okay, it was just me prancing... I know Matt was bored...  We headed to Jimmy John's.  Quick lunch date before seeing some houses and heading to dinner with friends.

Here we are, stalking our first house of the day:

What else is there to do when you're waiting on someone other than to take selfies?
