Flea Market Adventures

I'm having an extremely lazy Sunday. In the name of honest journalism I will disclose that I haven't brushed my teeth yet and it lunchtime. I will get there, this I promise society. Update: I am proud to report that my teeth were brushed at 1:00pm EST. Great success. In the meantime enjoy my pictures of the breakfast I had yesterday and my visit to the flea market!

The cutest restaurant- The Lovin Oven
Lots of tea to choose from!
Cute sugar bowl!
Yummmmm. Guess what I had? SPOILER: Egg white omelet with spinach, mushrooms and Swiss cheese, a sweet potato biscuit and rosemary potatoes. What is that sound? Your stomach growling? Feast with your eyes!
Who said that I wasn't an artist? I shall title this one Dad with Flowers.

Elizabeth Gilbert author of Eat Pray Love set up shop with Two Button Imports, here are some of her goods outside of the warehouse. I love the wooden crates they are all in.

Commence the journey to Pennsylvania. My Mom, the driver, was pooping her pants at this time. It's a super narrow two-lane bridge and here is not a lot of room (aka any) for tactical error.

Hark! The Delaware River!!
 We made it to the other side! Wooo! I would like to report that I did not see a litter crew but the rest of these signs seem to be in order, this is indeed Pennsylvania!
Let me tell you, there was a raid going down when we got there! Some man selling knock-off t-shirts was getting the shakedown!
Let me also tell you, there is a large black market for Pandora Beads. Exhibit A.
Sunglasses were a big mover!
They sell these super nasty bones for dogs. I think Bailey would take one look at this table and ditch me for life, all of those good times forgotten for a rotting piece of swine. It's a tough life.
Political and Americana fanfare.
There is jewelry!
Lots of it! (Confession: I took these pictures without looking through the camera. Super sneaky! I was worried they would think I was in cahoots with the police shut-down when really I was in the market to pickle a cat [codeword for buy], if you know what I mean). 
Look at these baby cactus! So cute, but don't cuddle with them. Ouch.
A section of the market was shut down (apparently it's only open on Tuesdays). This was a bummer for me because most antique booths weren't open and I was in the market to buy an antique teacup!
I bet you have been looking for a place for all your Magic, Pokemon and Yu-Gi-Oh! needs! Here she blows!
I don't really know what these are, but only $5! A bargain! A must buy!
Knick-knacks in cardboard boxes.
Ohhhh! The Delaware River again! Here's the thing, our man George Washington is famous for crossing the Delaware River, and no doubt, good for him. But does this water look super wide to you? No! Food for thought.
Hope you are all having a rocking weekend, I'm off to see The Help!
I am adjusting to life back in the country just fine...check out that concentration I have for the road while driving my tractor!

Watch me walk with purpose and get my hair out of my face. Ohh, ahhh.
