For many years I got to
enjoy the wonderful
billed as the largest Flea
Market in the world.
I read about the Old Glory Antique
Fair in a magazine and thought
it would be fun to check it out.
I am so glad I did!
It was AMAZING!
|Of course I took along my|
two favorite antique/junk shoppers.

|Life is Beauty pillow.|
At first, I thought it said,
Life is Beautiful.
I think I like this better.
|Don't you just love rusty old tricycles?|
The plastic ones of today are just not the same.
|Love the No Trespassing Sign on the chair.|
Believe me, by the end of the day, we needed to
trespass on any chair available.
|One of the reasons I love living in Colorado is|
that this state is so very aware of our servicemen and
Love this sign.
|I actually took a picture of this swing|
to show Jeremy. I think the little boys would love having some
of these under the deck. Surely they would
be easier than making a Harding Swing.
|These were all over the fair. I finally found|
out that they were from old Hardware stores
and they were nail bins.
|This scene reminded me of|
our good friend Grady Burke
who is a fallen firefighter.
|This is not a horse trough.|
It is a baby bathtub.
I would love to bathe a baby in one of these.
|I spotted Ki Nassauer, Editor-in-Chief of Flea Market Style.|
The link above shows her
blog about Old Glory.
She's the one in the red blouse.
I guess I looked like a stalker snapping
|Check out this burlap and muslin|
table runner. I could make this.
(Couldn't I Kami?)
|Another view of the chairs.|
|Pots of geraniums were everywhere.|
|The next few pictures give you an idea of the goodies|
that were for sale.
|In the afternoon, a huge rain storm came up.|
Do you think that stopped us?
We just waited it out in the car.
|There were actually no men working in sight.|
There were lots of women shopping.
Oh, I take that back, there were
several men helping to lug purchases
back to cars.
|It's going to live in the basement den, right|
next to the Grandchildren's Room
where it is handy for coloring,
puzzle working, and anything else
that comes to mind.
