I had a great time yesterday at the Ventura Flea Market. First of all, it was great because it did not rain, like the last time, so that was the first plus.
My husband Mark and I got there a bit early to see what we could find. The first thing I found was this old bed headboard, from my friend Karen's booth. I think I am going to somehow incorporate into my garden.
Mark and I walked all around the flea market, and I didn't find much else in the next hour. I was getting excited to meet Jamie of Simply Me Art, and Debbie Kay from My Vintage Daydreams.
As you know, I had met Jamie previously in the month, at a Tuesday flea market near her home.
I was excited to visit with her again, as we hit it off right away. So as it got nearer to the time to meet Jamie, I went to the front gate to wait for her, and there she was, ready for a day of shopping. We walked a little bit, then I got a call that Debbie and her friend Tina had arrived.
By this time Mark went off to look around, and read his book that he had brought, so the girls could shop. I went up to the front gate to meet Debbie and Tina. I brought them back to meet Jamie. We were all very excited to meet. It's not everyday you get to meet a fellow blogger.
I then took them all to meet Jennifer Grey of www.theoldpaintedcottage.com/ That was fun!! They loved Jennifer and her lovely wares.
We walked, talked and shopped non-stop. The only other thing I bought the rest of the day was this cute little red and white creamer. Later in the day Debbie and her friend parted to do a little more shopping, and to pick up a big mantle that Tina had bought from my friend Karen.
Jamie and I waited for my husband to return, and we decided to go into the town of Ventura, to see my friend Barbara's shop Garden Memories. http://www.gardenmemoriesgifts.com/ Jamie enjoyed Barbara and her shop, as I new she would. I have to say that the highlight of my day was when sweet Jamie surprised me with one of her beautiful jewelry pieces. This gorgeous bracelet. I was very excited to receive it. Jamie is so talented. I was fascinated just watching her sift through all of the vintage jewelry, looking for the perfect pieces to use in her beautiful art.
I think everyone had a fun day!! Can't wait to do it again soon.
Have a great week!
