today was one of those days
I would like to hit “Repeat”
to play it over and over and over
Bestie and I headed out early this morning
and spent the WHOLE DAY at the
Nashville Flea Market!!!
if you enjoy
pickin’ or junking
ALL OF THE ABOVE
the NASHVILLE FLEA MARKET
IS THE PLACE FOR YOU!
some friends of ours
sell socks at the market each month
they called yesterday
said they had forgotten a box of socks at home
asked if we would mind bringing the box of socks
since we were coming that way anyway
we gladly agreed
met up with our friend upon arrival
to return the favor
our friend said
“now I have an empty trailer if y’all find more than you can haul home”
(I’m sure assuming we would not take him up on the offer…and I hadn’t planned to…..and THEN maybe 20 minutes in….. I saw THIS!!!)
and found myself almost GIDDY
when I saw the price
the woman selling this AMAZING booth
“Do you mind holding this a half hour for me???
We JUST got here…”
(her facial expression told me that she DID mind)
I quickly dialed Cowboy Dan
to see what he thought
(because that’s what I do when I get all beside myself
because he’s level headed and I’m SPASTIC and IMPULSIVE)
he of course said “It’s up to you. You’re there. I’m not.”
and though Bestie and I hadn’t been on the premises half an hour!
I just couldn’t pass it up…..
knowing THE DEAL OF THE DAY would not fit in Bestie’s suburban
I chose to “phone a friend”
“Hey! it’s me…if the offer stands..I’m going to take you up on it! I made a purchase and sure would appreciate it if you would haul it home for me”
He graciously agreed
we made arrangements for pick up
I expect THE DEAL OF THE DAY to arrive late tomorrow or Sunday
right across the aisle from my first purchase we saw this
not going to get political with this post
simply saw a photo opt
and took it
there were LOTS of photo opts
people and dogs of all shapes and sizes
fashion statements GALORE!
that we bought on site
it was COLD!!!!!!!!! brrrrrr!
(much colder than we had anticipated)
when it got too cold outside
we would go in to warm up
LOTS and LOTS and LOTS
of things inside
aren’t these cute? (sugar and creamer)
LOVE the colors!
shelves made out of ladders (MUST DO)
as well as a variety of services offered:
FUN and FUNNY!
I’m going to say it one more time
(speaking for both Bestie and myself)
If you ever feel the need to “rehome” your deal of the day, I’m pretty sure I could find a place for it! (Even if I had to knock out a wall or two. LOL) That is awesome. Can’t wait to see it in your home! I have a thing for wire baskets too.

Thanks Whitney! I can’t wait to get it here to look it over again…stay tuned! There’s a VERY good chance it will end up for sale…I REALLY don’t NEED it…
I’m glad you found that awesome booth! I love it! I’m glad my dad could help!

Yes! Your sweet daddy was a lifesaver!
