DAY 2 TREASURE HUNTING AGAIN!!

Do you love this little greeting or what? The first inside booth was wonderful! She was selling these large old metal advertising letters and some numbers. We searched through for FMND, Forget Me Not Dreams, for our show booths but came up one letter short... no "D". It just won't work without the Dreams. Life doesn't work without the dreams we have and strive for every day.

This is a photo of just a sliver of the inside of the booth. We just loved her display technique and all of the different little items she had collected. The booth was lovely with fine vintage china mixed with chippy furniture and rusty buckets. The owner is also in charge of the Lacey Marketplace which runs all summer , every week-end, carrying antiques to local farmers' produce. I'm sure we'll be back to check it out!


We were sent from the Flea Market to the Second Hand Rose, everything vintage and more. What a treat that was wandering inside and out looking for treasures. We really had fun here looking in corners, under tables and sifting through the outdoor finery. Most of the Flea Market vendors are friends with the owners of Second Hand Rose and for good reason we could see! We only wished that we had more time to poke around, but husbands were waiting as were the week-end chores that we ran away from. Isn't it great to escape??!!
PS - Rebecca, you are welcome to wander with us anytime! My daughter-in-law is sitting on 2 centimeters dilation, so we might be flying quickly to Denver soon to greet our new grand son, Hagen. So exciting!
Happy treasure hunting to all!
Karen & Eileen

Hi Karen and Eileen, Love the pics. I could spend a lot of time there. Too bad on the letters. It would have been perfect for you, but like you said, gotta have the D for dreams. I would love to go treasure hunting with you girls.

Have a great day.
Hugs, Celestina Marie
