We went to Oronoco Flea Market today. This used to be the biggest best flea market around. OH my GOSH! I couldn't believe it! About 1/3 - 1/2 of the dealers didn't set up. Whole sections of streets, whole areas.....were dealers.....they now used it for parking. They had it on the news and they said the price of gas and the cost to set up deterred a lot of people. ALSO.......they have people on carts hauling stuff for people.....they were driving around with carts empty, almost all day. It seemed that buying was really down too. I was really surprised. I did however get some great deals for scrapbooking. Aren't these great!!! They are so cool....I think I am going to use them in our Florida vacation scrapbook.
These are fun. I thought they were great.

I've always wanted one of these rose books but they were too much....I got it for $10.00! and the other stuff was $1.00 for all the checks and a 1.00 each for the other things except the awesome thick music books dated 1895.....they were 50 cents each.

And I have been wanting some flash cards and these fun lotto game....$6.00 for all and the 50 cent books underneath!
