Fancy Flea Market in Lakeland Florida April 30 2011

Can Anybody Say WOW!

This past Saturday I attended the "Fancy Flea" in Lakeland, FL. It took place in the historic district in the downtown area on Kentucky Ave. The street bumps right up to the lovely Munn Park. I must say this was the most Fabulous flea market I have ever been too! It was two blocks long with tents set up on both sides of the street! I swear, if I had had the money I could of bought something in every single booth! I also would have needed a U-Haul to take my treasures home!

I met so many friends from Facebook and Blog Land that I have been following, and or friends with for a while! Several folks I know had booths there and I made many new friends also. It was great fun, a perfect sunny warm day, the perfect setting, and the most fabulous stuff Ever!

I took tons of pictures acutually filling up my camera, my cell phone, and then used my sisters cell. Even with that, there was a ton that I missed...bad thing was though, because I was so busy and excited taking pictures, I missed seeing some things I have been looking for and saw them in my pictures! Drats, darn, dang it!  Oh well, they do this event twice a year so they'll be back this fall and maybe I'll be able to score on that one! Ok with no futher babbling, Let's See the Pictures! You can meet some of my very talented, sweet friends too! This is going to be tough because I have so many great pictures of great stuff and there is no way I can post them all so I'll show my favs!
