This past weekend was the start of a fleamarket at the nearby high school that runs over the spring & summer (I've posted about it before). My mom had a table to sell our old junk and my sister and I helped her out. Selling is not as fun as buying at these things. I'm no good at bargaining or pricing things to sell. It was cute to see the little kids who bought our old toys having fun with them- one little boy bought our scooter and was riding it around the parking lot the rest of the morning. My sister made a dent in getting rid of her old collection of horse toys. And I got sunburn. :(

But I bought things too! A really pretty metal owl:

A big trunk! A bit of an impulse buy, yes, but it's good for storage and is nicer to look at than those big plastic tubs. Luckily it fits nicely into a space in my (tiny) room so I didn't have to do much rearranging to get it in there.

Neat finds! Flea markets are the best.

I'll definitely have to work at not buying just as much stuff as I sell :)

Nice old trunk. You could reline the inside - there's probably instructions online to do that.

Cute kitty. :)

Noice! That owl's adorable! And the trunk is badass (but of course not as badass as the kitty inside!).

Very cool! Flea markets are awesome (if hazardous to my wallet x*D )
