Put on your shades, grab a light jacket and let's head out!
First up on our trip through the vintage thingie goodness that is the 4H Flea Market, this adorable little doggie pull toy. Wait...something looks seriously wrong with his nose! I suppose when you're led around by your nose for years somethings bound to go wrong.And if he wasn't cute enough, here's this.Oh NO! Please....Tell me it's NOT...is that a Creepy Cymbal Playing Chimpanzee Freak I see??? No, thank goodness, it's just a semi-creepy-non-cymbal-playing-overall-wearing-chimpanzee-freak. Still creeps me out.
Bonjour! Parlez-vous le français ? Nous sommes Saumâtres et Poivrés! Nous sommes adorables!
I'd love to own a vintage cookie jar collection...just nowhere to keep one. This little bird is one of the cutest I've seen!I love anthropomorphic anything!
I fell in love with these. The color is perfect. I don't think I even bothered checking the price though, I doubt they were a bargain. Maybe Santa will bring them to me...Anyone know what this is? I KNOW it's a pie...but does it do something else? Looks like it might spin or something.We've been at this a while. Is anyone else ready for a snack? A cinnamon roll perhaps, maybe a nice cold drink?
Aaaah. I feel better. Ready for more flea market goodies? Let's go!
There's something really charming to me about vintage Halloween items. However, this one is a little scary...he's got Crazy Eyes.And these guys are laughing 'cause they know something Mr. Crazy-Eyes-Bad-Teeth Pumpkin doesn't know . That truck's heading for Mrs. Smith's Pumpkin Pie Headquarters.And speaking of Holidays, is anyone else swooning over this?Here we have the Barbie Townhouse, in the box. I had one exactly like this and it was my absolute favorite thing in the world. I BEGGED Mark to buy it. He didn't of course. And I didn't either. You didn't expect me to spend my apron and tablecloth money on a Barbie Townhouse that I don't really need, did you? But oh, how I would love to have it. I'm only slightly joking when I say I'd have played with it if he'd have bought it.One thing that I noticed at this Fall's 4H Flea Market that I haven't noticed in the past was an abundance of celebrities. Big names. Seriously. Luckily the paparazzi was on hand and
First up, Elsie the Cow. Word on the street was she had to take little Bessie to the Hospital while on a supervised visit or something like that...
Raggedy Ann was there. Is it just me or does she look like she's had some work done?
Speaking of a gal who's had some work done... can you say lipo? botox? boob job? That body and face can't possibly be that perfect on it's own after what? 50+ years?After years of estrangement, Burger King, Sprout and Donald Duck who haven't been seen together since the late 70's were there promoting their new movie, a remake of the Three Amigos. Not to be outdone, this famous boy band showed up touting their new album called Snap, Crackle and Pop Goes the World.And always the schmoozer, Colonel Sanders literally was showing up EVERYWHERE!What's his name from Planet of the Apes knew better than to hang around Colonel Sanders for long...he wouldn't want to come up missing...see that maniacal grin on the Colonel's face...yeah monkey boy was moving on outta there in a hurry as he left we heard him mutter "Beware the beast Man, for he is the Devil's pawn!"
Trying to squeeze in on the coattails of the new Twilight movie, Count Dracula skulked in, but was promptly ushered out by 4H security.And if that's not enough celebrities for you...Steve Urkel popped by...and apparently tried to smush mini Steve Urkel.
Daryl Hannah was there...Even the King! A hunka-hunka burnin' love as usual!And the absolute highlight of the day? The one celebrity that got the whole entire crowd excited? Who else? SANTA! With one of his "helpers"!! He was as jolly as you would expect and yes, his belly did shake like a bowl full of jelly when he laughed!Man, that was fun! I don't know when I've seen so many silly and interesting things(not to mention celebs) all in one place. Anyone else ready for another snack before we hit the road? I'm thinking corn dog...I ask you...if anyone is still actually there...Where else can you spend a day for the mere cost of parking, caramel corn and a Coke and have this much fun?
