Tomorrow, I'm having Beth and a couple other friends over for a craft day. Thinking about that, made me realize that I never posted any photos of the last day that we got to hang out together, which was at our favorite flea, Sparks and White Cloud.
We go every Spring and Fall, and have for years. No matter how many times I go, I never get over the oddness of the towns. Is there anything there when the flea mkt is not set up? I see a few houses in Sparks and even more in White Cloud, but it still has that air of abandonment.
This old place makes me think of Kansas back in the days of the wild West. I always want to go in and order a sasperilla, except saspirilla tastes nasty when its fresh anyway, I'd hate to sip a 150 year old glass of the stuff and it looks like its been that long since this business was open.
This window has looked like this for years. I don't know if the previous shopkeeper was trying to send a message with this array, or if he just walked away and this inventory happened to be left over.
Could he be asking Jesus to raise his business from the dead?
Maybe he is 3 legged because he lives in a town with no leash laws and he loves running in the streets?
Hmm, I think Elsie the cow is checking out my rack.
I heard someone saying that this flea has made it to the top of some list about the best bargain flea mkt in the country. I don't know where the list was or who made it though. Could just be some old coots talking around the funnel cake stand making up lists. But I do think that the prices are durn good there and I'm always happy with my finds.
Especially what I get on the dollar tables. There was one dollar table that I spent over 50 bucks at.
Also, I'm missing all the commotion and excitement of Birdsong and was wondering if a swap would cheer me up... anyone interested in a Birdsong Tag Book Swap?
