Aunt B's Simply Homemade had a shop at a huge flea market today. (Aka my mom's soap selling business) I put some of my hand drawn cards and bookmarks out today for sale....lots of people picked them up and commented on how adorable they are...but nobody purchased any today. I have reasonable prices....5 card set-$12, single card-$3, and bookmarks-$2 each.
I would put up pictures.....but I don't feel like going too public with them yet. I have some really cute one's for sale though!
Dad gave both Britney and I a $20 each to spend. Which was really unusual because dad never gives us money just to spend.
I got a Christmas present for mom and a Christmas present for Britney! I'm starting early this year, haha.
And I got some really good deals today! There was this lovely jewelry place Britney and I stopped by. The starfish earrings and necklace was a set for $12...I wasn't able to afford it, so I was putting it back and the lady told me that the summer jewelry was half off. It was only $6? What? I picked it back up and bought it! I have constantly been searching for reasonably priced starfish earrings on etsy with no luck. I simply had to get it! Along with the anchor earrings! I've been searching for those as well.
Britney pointed out this Chinese calligraphy set to me, I had bought one from a thrift shop before for $2. The man running the table told me he would give me a good deal for it, I was interested, so I asked how much and he said $5. $5? Another good deal! I couldn't let it pass by! I bought it eagerly as well.
And finally I got two books, one book was from a table where all the proceeds went towards animal rescue, so I absolutely had to purchase something there to help out the animals!
A teenage guy around my age was selling the Lord of the Rings game. I think he was shocked that I had a PlayStation and that I enjoyed Lord of the Rings. For some reason it's lots of fun to fight people on PlayStation....not that I play it much any more. Our PlayStation was a hand-me-down Christmas present from my older cousin, Kurtis.
And lastly, a switchblade knife for whittling. I remember during camping with my youth group that everybody had a sharp knife and whittled sticks around the campfire in the evening. I only had a small and dull pocket knife. This was only a dollar and I'm totally taking it camping next year!
I love flea markets!
