{ flea market trip }


I can't believe it took me this long to post these photos, but last week i went with my sister, mom and dad to Stormville Flea Market. It is on an old airport runway that hasn't been used in years. So my mom called and i decided to partake. Little did i know how early she likes to get going! So i had to set my alarm for 4:30 am! (oh, and that was after i asked her for a little more time... she is rather addicted to getting there early). We literally arrived at 8:10 am. It ended up being sunny, but cold. So we had our fair share of java that day.

In case you have never been, or have never heard of this place, it is pretty cool. There is an entire section of antiques and old, vintage goodies. Then you can shop amongst a fair share of knock-offs and even makeup. I cracked up at the amount of sock booths were present, but i digress. There was homemade jerky, soaps and amazing fruit/veggie stands as well. I really think if you were looking for it, it was there!

When we first arrived, i migrated to this amazing display of goodies. Old Goode Things out of NYC. This guy collects some amazing salvaged architectural pieces. There were chunks of tin ceiling that i fell in love with for a large wall in my living room. I wasn't prepared though for this, and so spacing in my dad's car wasn't working in my favor.

He also had some of the most beautiful mirrors!

This is my sister and i goofing around.

I found a booth of fiesta ware. As much as i love white dishes, i have a secret passion for these pieces. I own some bowls and would love to add on accessories. Especially for summer entertaining.

The veggie booths had the most amazing food. The color alone was worth wondering what the heck they were fed! =)

These shoes were something cool too. Talk about nostalgia!

If you are ever in the area, it is worth the day trip. They are closed now for the winter, but open up for certain weekends starting again in the spring.

Have a great week!

I love that place. My parents go there often..you must have plenty of bungie cords and rope to strap things onto the car and to hold the trunk closed that is the secret haha.

How fortunate are you to have a place like that to enjoy! We don't have anything like that here in South Florida....
