Took a quick trip early this morning to my favorite flea market in Springfield, Ohio, about an hour west of Columbus. It was only in the 30’s, but the sun was shining and there was no wind, so it was more than tolerable for shopping. It was a small show this month, but it’s been a long winter and I couldn’t resist the thrill of the hunt that you always have at a flea market. Picked up a few things for my Etsy Shop and a few things for myself.
Next month is the gigantic Springfield Extravaganza which is a 3-day event with over 2000 vendors from near and far. They have another Extravaganza in September and by far, these are my two favorite events of the year. I’d rather shop any day at a flea market than at a mall. This is truly a “shop till you drop” event.
You never know what you’re going to find at a good flea market, which is the exciting part. You always come home with a few treasures . . .
