Fun At The Fancy Flea

 
 
Hi everyone! 
 I hope you had a wonderful weekend.
 
Steve took dad to a political rally on Saturday so I took advantage of the
free time to attend The Fancy Flea vintage market.  They hold this market
twice a year in downtown Lakeland, Fl. and Country Living Magazine named
it one of the top 10 vintage markets in the United States.
 
I have to agree it was a fabulous flea market with over 300 dealers lining the
streets in the historic downtown district.  Below are just some of the pictures
I took at the market.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
It was a great day and the weather was beautiful. The vendors seemed to be doing
really well, some were almost sold out three hours before the end of the show.
 
I'm having problems downloading pictures so I'll be back later to show you more
of the market and my purchases.
 
See you at the Open House Party starting Wednesday evening.
 
xoxo
Sherry
 
Partying this week at...

I've always wanted to go the the Fancy Flea. I live in south FL and it's about a 3-4 hour drive. Do you live close? I first heard about it from Kim @ Daisy Cottage.

Great pictures, Sherry! I'm glad you were able to get out and about. I'm sure the weather is just wonderful there right now. I should be so lucky to sell out before the market ends when I do mine in a couple of weeks. : )

Looks like a great flea and sounds like the perfect way to spend some alone time. I think my sponsor Robyn Story was there with a booth.

That looks like a girls weekend trip to me! And a doable one from Alabama. Lakeland's still a bit far down the road, but not as far as so many of the best flea markets. Thanks for sharing!
