The setup: The Nashville flea market is pretty big deal for a lot of people. It's large, and there's lot of crap for sell, if that's not a recipe for drawing folks in, then I don't know what is.
I've been in TN for over four years now, and I haven't been to the flea market. It seems like my kind of place, but I've been told that there are a lot (or whatever more than a lot is) of people that attend these monthly gatherings, and me and large crowds don't go together too well, #SocialAnxiety. Plus, I'm really not a big fan of Nashville (Knoxville is much more to my liking), so other than the occasional card show (which is on the outskirts), I don't have much want to make the drive, no matter how great something may be -- now my mom on the other hand, well, she loves the flea market, and doesn't mind the drive, so she's pretty much been on an every other month schedule since moving here (five or six years ago).
Having a mom that frequents these sorts of places definitely has it's benefits, as you can see from the photo at the top of the post, this past weekend is a perfect example -- I don't go anywhere, and yet I still end up getting stuff.
I don't know if anybody cared to know that about me, but I thought it help explain why my mom got this 1935 Mikerscope Album & Log Book.
Fourth, and final, item:
Not a bad selection of stuff, eh? I have a habit of asking how much things being given to me cost, some might call this a bad habit, but I just like to make sure that not too much money is being spent on me. After so many years of me asking, my mom is pretty used to it, and save for birthday/Christmas presents, always tells me. Anyone else curious about the price of the contents in today's post? Would you believe me if I told you that it was just $4? I guess even if you don't believe it, that won't change the fact that that's much everything was, a buck apiece. Hmm, I might have to rethink this whole not going to the flea market thing...
Thanks for taking a moment to look at my page.
