"Yes, I love flea.o.logyBut not as much as you, you see
But I still love flea.o.logy
Always and forever"
OK, I am done ripping off Napoleon Dynamite ... but I do love flea.o.logy! I love having a deadline that makes me get projects done. I love the dealers who come and set up with amazing stuff. I love meeting new people who love junking as much as I do ... and of course I love shopping for funky stuff.
The sale is held three times a year in the yard of my old home. This is our eighth year ... we started with 6 or 8 dealers from the antique mall where I sell, and have recently had as many as 40 different vendors. The yard is very shady, so even when its hot it pretty comfy. Really, its a party!
Isn't this Lemonade door adorable?
My flea business partner, and daughter-in-law, Nell, always sells lots of these cute animal jars!
How fun is this basket woven light fixture?
Darrel is great at rounding up great old guy stuff ... lots of rusty, and always fun.
This sale, we had lots of great metal junk compliments of Larry, who is the owner of Pickers Paradise in Nephi, boy does he have the selection... always worth the trip south to stock up!
My friend Andrea, known for her cute blog Queen B and Me ... came for the first time and brought these fun pennant banners .... if you know me, you aren't surprised that one of them stayed behind at my house. :-) Just couldn't resist!
... and Vickie brought in the ice and water to show how to use the fun old laundry sink, which sold in the first 10 minutes, so she just sold cold water out of it all day, until it was picked up ...
fun blog you might want to take a look at.
I think her ticket tags are so fun!! I even found a darling old bride and groom to keep!
And here is the star ... pretty impressive eh?
Ginny, a first time dealer with us, brought barbed wire wreaths and old windows to share. I love the one above, with the autumn leaves and just a bit of barbed wire peeking through .... guess what will be adorning my front door in a couple of months!
More of JoAnne's talent shining through above.
And if you are local, you can go to her barn sale this weekend. Its Friday and Saturday and you too will be amazed.
Its at 12260 S. Pasture Road (4000 W) in Riverton .... don't miss it, I won't! Its starts at 7:00 A.M, now that's a farm girl for you!
Her handy work is also shown on my grandson Titan, who came down for the sale with his Mom and Dad ... and who kept saying "Mommy, I a tiger!" stopping at anything reflective to check out his face again and again. It was so cute .... Titan the Tiger!
Oh, and did I mention that we had funnel cakes? as well as our home made twix bars .... yummy!
It was a great day, and all my leftovers are already loaded in the van to make the trip to the antique mall this morning!!
Hurrah ... now I can start projects for the next and last flea.o.logy of the year on August 31st!
