Home With The Merchandise

We made it back home safe and sound with some awesome stuff. I love buying items that are FARM FRESH from states like Illinois...Kansas...Nebraska...Wisconsin...Indiana, these people have some really wonderful things that all of us love to decorate with in our homes. I had so much fun hearing about where all the things that I was buying came from...history is so "cool"...don't you think? I thought I might be a tad bit RUSTY since I haven't been on a buying trip in seven years, but it's just like riding a bike, after a few minutes I was back in the swing of it and was a buying FOOL!!!! The first guy that I bought from was from southern Illinois and when I total up how many items that I got from him, I'm sure it will be around 40 or so. It was only me and one other lady in his spot and we were both loading we were both getting the first always pays to get there early. Mr. CC and I shopped for 2 1/2 days...that's was all I could hold out for...if you know what I mean! I have a ton of pics to share from the flea market and the most STUNNING shop that I have ever been in (some of you will know the owner...she is a blogger just like all of us), but today I'm going to share just a few, so please be sure to come back on Monday at my weekly NIFTY THRIFTY TUESDAY PARTY to see more. Also, I hope you have a THRIFTY post ready to share with all of us at the party...It's so much fun every week to see all the creative THRIFTY ideas and THRIFTY treasures you gals have to share, so with that said...I hope to see you all at NIFTY THRIFTY TUESDAY!!!!

                                Even got one goodie for FREE!!!
                                   Get this...the guy was to lazy
                                    to bag my merchandise, so
                                    he just gave me this "cool"
                                         old apple basket!!!!
                               I could have NEVER had done
                             all of this without this man...ladies
                            let me tell ya...he is the real deal!!!!
                                    Thanks honey for all
                                     you do for me and

                                     hard to let this one go!
                                       I can just see it on
                                          my mantel!!!
                               You all knew I would come
                                 back with some of these.
                                    You don't think that these
                                     are it, do you? Oh no...I
                                             have more!!!
                           For some people it's hard to believe what
                               my shop will look like with all of this,
                                   but take my word, I have some
                                      wonderful plans for all of it!
