I also found this black shelf, for .50 cents, don't know yet what I'm going to do with it, but I'll figure out something one day.
The green line on the ticket means it's 50% off, now I couldn't pass that up, could I?
Next she had a basket full of knitted items and a few linen scarves, I found these 2 for $1.00 each
These are called dresser scarves and are usually 3 to a set, but some one had already bought one of them..boo, I needed it for my dresser. But I'll find somewhere else to use them...I just love the pretty baskets of flowers and the tan color.
Sat. on my way home from taking BB his Berries I picked for them, I came through Jackson and stopped at the Elton St. Flea Market...I told y'all I'd tell you what I found, but first let me tell you about a man I meet there, he was one of those old men, I know y'all have ran across one of them some time in your life, if you haven't you will. One of those blow hard big mouths that just have to smart off about everything,
I had just got to the Market and was looking at different vendors booths, it was getting late and extremely hot in the building, there were very few customers there, maybe 4 or 5 besides me and it is a big building so there was only the lady that ran the booth and me in her area...he walked over from one of those everything new from China booths, I'm sure you know the kind I'm talking about. It seems that's all you can find in some malls now adays.
Marked 2 whole dollars and I was telling the lady I had to have it, (can't you see the possibilities of it?) WELLLLL, he started out with, "girl what do you want with a piece of junk like that, I just never can understand why you women go so crazy over just pure junk"....well I tried to exnore him, and I could tell it was embaressing the little old lady in the booth, but he just wouldn't shut up, "I told my wife, she better never bring junk like that in my house, wasting my good money on junk"... "it's even got a hole in the side, what in the world are you going to do with it" "you women just amuse me" OK, that did it, I am not there to Amuse him, I sweetly and politely with fire shooting out of my eyes....told him, that I was so sorry that he didn't have the vision to see the treasure in this little pot, but I did, I could see that at one time it was a treasured, loved item in some other lady's home, and even though some people might think of it as junk, I could see a beautiful little flower pot or a spooner for the kitchen, a little change holder, there were so many ways it could still be useful, even it it couldn't be used as a tea pot anymore, and that what is one man's trash is anothers treasure.
I then started to turn around and start looking at the items again, but I just had to tell this old wrinkled, seen better days, over weigh man, that I guess we were lucky that people didn't judge our worth by our looks as we got older or there would be alot of us threw out for junk.
I then turned my back on him and continued shopping, and happy days look what other special treasure I found
and for $4.00...I really danced a jigg on this find, he just shook his head and left...lol...
I see red, No not from his big mouth, red on the Canisters along with hens and roosters and biddies everywhere, Don't you? And the lazy susan works fine.....
I spend a grand total of $8.50 and Rissa spent $10.00 not bad at all.
