Flea market at Veedersburg

We headed out for a drive today, and did visit some of our usual haunts...but then ended up on Interstate 74, heading east.  And got off at the exit for Veedersburg.   To go to a flea market. 
The first place we visited sure had a variety of old stuff...I couldn't resist the box of hammers.
I don't think I ever saw such a variety of rolling pins in one place...and the gentleman said he bet he had done sold 30 of them.  Said they seemed to be the item of choice this week.
I couldn't believe this dinnerware...I don't think I have seen any quite like it in all my times of looking at flea markets and junk shops.

I had on a long sleeved waffle weave shirt, plus a heavy flannel shirt over that...most of the time it was enough, but for the first few minutes I thought I was going to have to go back to the car for my regular jacket.  The wind was really chilly.

Tomorrow is supposed to be even warmer and more sunshine...I guess we best appreciate these days while we have them.

I've been looking & hunting for rolling pins all over the place & those are only $2? WoW! Why can't someone around here have an abundance of them, too?! I don't want news ones, I want ones w/ stories... ya know?! I collect old time stuff & I want a rolling pin for a paper towel holder... LoL! =0

There are some real bargains there. Looks like a fun day.

I saw a vintage lefse rolling pin on Etsy that was pretty neat, but it has been sold now.

That last photo: very interesting tableware! That was a fun idea you had to go to the flea market.

Your turn off was a very good move. I like all these flea market items. Fascinating silverware.

do you know how much they were asking for the table ware (forks and knives?)

Very unusual dinnerware...looks foreign. I love looking at old junk :-)

Sounds like the weather was pretty good for looking through all these goodies - except for the chilly wind, that is. I have nEVER seen flatwear like the ones in the box above. Nope, never!
