In an effort to get rid of my sh- I mean vintaged goods around the house, I signed up for the Gaithersburg Flea Market at the Gaithersburg Agricultural Fair Grounds yesterday. I paid $50 for space and to my surprise, I made about $250 net! NOT TOO SHABBY!
|My booth b*tch (SATC reference...nevermind).|
Abby couldn't help herself...she loved looking at all the colors! She ended up with a cute Hello Kitty headband.
The booth next to me had some super cute homemade hair clips as well!
By the end of the market, I was exhausted and dreaded the thought of lugging some of the crap home. As I was packing up, an older gentleman approached and asked about the large fabric panels I had. Note: these panels were my parents' circa 1970s and have been gathering dust for the past 20 years. He really liked one of them so I told him he could have it for free. He was so ecstatic and thanked me profusely. I thanked him for taking it off my hands! As I was packing up, I snapped this photo of him carrying the panel back to his nearby home. =)
I had a lot of fun getting rid of junk and earning money at the same time! There's a weekly outdoor flea market every Saturday at the Fairgrounds I believe...I can't imagine sitting outside for hours in this winter cold... But check out the next Gaithersburg indoor Flea Market on March 23rd! I'll be there selling all of my junk, I mean treasures.
