Sunday afternoon, my friends Alyse and Brittany came up for lunch and the Nashville Flea Market. The excursion was a great success.
And, without further ado, here are my finds:
I found the Boston Cooking School Cookbook on Friday morning before work. The vendor wasn’t there, but the man in the next booth (an acquaintance of mine) offered to take the money for her. The dilemma? It was marked $6 and I wanted to pay $5. “Oh, that’s all right,” he said. “I think she’ll be fine with it — if she’s not, I’ll cover it for you.” Aren’t people wonderful? He also sold me that very large, very fine jar. For $2.
The basil plant takes the place of the two that I killed when we moved. Hopefully it will survive.
The two smaller jars, the thermometer, and the coke bottles were all in a “fill a bag for $1” deal. Brittany and Alyse and I stuffed all our finds into the bag, and each paid a third. So those cost me about seven cents each.
This is not a flea market find (although we did get attacked by them a couple times at the flea market). I hate them. But it does make working more colorful, to see customers running screaming through the parking lot. Anyway…..
So this ends the May flea market report! And if you’ve never been, I hope I’ve convinced you to try it. It’s always an adventure, and it’s the highlight of my month.
