I love the local year round flea market.  It is like going to visit family.  Most of the people I buy from are seniors just trying to make ends meet, afford their meds, etc..

My latest find, a little lady with hand crochet flowers her mother made.  So gorgeous these little pansies are.  After I purchased them she felt a little bad she didn’t keep any, after all her mom made them.   I went back with a few framed for her.  She wanted to pay me, she gave me a hug, and said, they are free and one size fits all.  Then she gave me 3 immaculate vintage hats.  I can’t wait to fab them up and put them in the shop. 

My little family at he flea market are so good to me.  Some just give me items they know I will like.  There are some that I tell them what I am looking for and the next week they have it.  You just can’t beat that kind of service.

So not only does my shop on etsy fund the hands on exhibit for the blind, it also brings much needed income to these wonderful seniors.  A win win if you ask me.
