My Very First Flea, The Cleveland Flea

I've always had some junk in my trunk...

...but never in THREE trunks!! 


Thanks to D and my Dad I was able to bring a lot of inventory. A LOT. But to me, more is better! Just like the little girl says in this AT&T commercial "More is better than less because if stuff is not less, if there's more less stuff then you might, you might want to have some more and your parents just don't let you because there's only a little bit. We want more, we want more like you really like it you want more."

True 'dat sista! We want more, so more it is!







  

One of my favorite sales of the day was to this awesome Rollergirl! She made my day when she bought these vintage wooden roller skates. And then she rocked my world when she put them on and went for a spin. 


THANK YOU friends & fam for coming out. It was a coooold day, but I think a few of you specifically the ones pictured below holding red solo cups stayed warm by taking advantage of the kegs over at the Market Garden Brewery Booth.


And the craziest moment of the day?? See the cute girl pictured above (bottom row, farthest picture to the right with the glasses on)? Well I totally loved her outfit, and of course thought that she looked familiar (no surprise there, I think everyone looks familiar!). So I started chatting with her and her friend to find out where they were from and see if I could figure out how I knew her. As soon as she said what high school she went to it hit me...

She was D's PROM DATE!!!!!!! How crazy is that!! Amanda, if you're reading this, hey girl!! 

The Cleveland Flea was an AWESOME first flea vendor experience. I met some great people, became friends with some of the other fellow thrift-loving vendors, bought some cool treasures, and sold quite a bit of stuff (an entire car load to be exact!) I will most definitely be back!
