December 9, 2010Texas Flea Market!
By Sara In AZ
I just LOVE the Texas flea market/antique sales! Every year, twice a year – in the spring and fall, there is a HUGE flea market about an hour east of Austin. The sales are in the Texas Hill Country and if you go in the spring you will see gorgeous Bluebonnets galore. The sales are a blast, but bring your walking shoes because there is A LOT of ground to cover!
Here is a pic to give you an idea of the size, but this isn’t even a quarter of it.
So what did we see? Well get your walking shoes on kids, it’s gonna be a long day!
First up some sweet retro 50s lamps. These were $185 for the pair, a little rich for my blood but so cool anyway.
There were a million other retro lamps for sale too, this place has everything!
Oh my! Remember my turquoise hair dryer that I got for $1 from Goodwill? Well someone was selling the EXACT same hair dryer here in Texas. You can see this one has the plastic bottom piece, which mine is missing. They were asking $80, so I felt OK for the price I paid!
Look out, that body-less lady is lookin’ to get her hair done and she is not going to wait! 🙂
Here is an old metal sink/stove combo. It is rusty, but I thought it was really cool anyway.

I have an obsession with chalkware and with ballerinas! It was everything I could do to tear myself away from these. But, at $45 I thought the price was a bit high. I still love them though.
Of course they had Heywood Wakefield! There was no price on this and the dealer was nowhere to be found, so your guess is as good as mine.
I was all about this old metal sign! I thought it was soooooo cool! K-Buc! It was $125, which seemed high to me, but I have to admit I am clueless about these old signs so maybe that was a good price???
OK, that’s all for now y’all.
Come on back next Thursday for more sights from the Flea Market!
