Got some much needed retro retail therapy at the Metrolina Flea Market this weekend. I must say, it takes a lot of consumer endurance to shop with me and I have found a shopping soulmate in Keia of The SunnysideUp. Not only does she keep (a snail's) pace with me, she's also got a keen eye for style and picked out the rolling pin apron I bought.

Since it was the Spring Classic there was like quintuple the normal amount of vendors and shoppers. I'd never seen it so crowded before. In fact, I ran into three other friends soaking up the sun and bargains!

While trolling for deals, I managed to pick up a few things on my list: cute hat for Keeneland, more wooden textile spools (not sure what I'll do with them yet... I use my others as hat stands and have seen them used as candle pillars and even wine racks before) and a reasonably priced jadite bowl. Plus, I had a few impulse buys: the tooled leather pouch (I cannot physically resist tooled leather), some lovely colorful trim and an adorable apron (that reminds me of Scandinavian enamelware). All in all, a great day, good weather and excellent company.

Missed this blog post when you first posted it, so a little late to the party but just let me say, "Awwww...I love antiquing with you too!" We're like Thelma and Louise, except way funnier and more snail like.
