Treasure Hunting at Stormville

We left bright and early yesterday morning to meet Pam at the Stormville flea market to hunt for treasures to use in our art work. Oh my! Over 600 vendors from 8+ states. I'm sure we didn't see more than 1/4 of it. Fortunately they have it separated so the new stuff is grouped in one area and the antiques/collectibles in another so we could head right for the good stuff. What a great time we had! We lasted until around 2:30/3:00 when it got much too hot to do anymore. Personally I think I was in sensory overload by that time too. So much to see/evaluate/dicker over etc. This gives you an idea of one tiny area:



Here's Pam, intently studying some wonderful steel printing plates.
And this is poor Janet, looking so miserable, having a terrible time:


We got some great stuff... unusual stuff ... great prices for the most part. Here's a sampling of Janet's stash:
I'm thinkin' she might want to do something with spoons in the near future, what do you think?

And here is a bit of my stash for the day:
See those pretty little dice? They were a present from Miss Pam... thank you Pam!

And... AND..... oh.... no.... I think I'll save the best for tomorrow. Let me just say it's probably one of the most exciting, most incredible finds that I've ever purchased. How's that for a teaser? I am SO excited I can hardly stand it! :o)

No telling Janet and Pam!

Till then...

Best...
