~ SECOND SUNDAY or HAPPY DANCE DAY~

Hey Girls !!! this is by all time favorite day of the month...as every second Sunday we have a huge swap meet with over 300 vender's that come out...and it called under the freeway...I thought I would take a few of my Blogging friends on a trip today... Lets see what we can find...OH look at these cute little salt cellars wouldn't our Susan just love these for one of her Tablescapes Tuesday's...I bet she could do something super with them...Love the little basket ones...




Oh !! and look at that cute Goat cart..would Picket just love that ??? I can just see it in her yard filled with flowers...



Oh and Lynne and her Mercury glass...would she not have a great time doing one of her wonderful Vignettes with these ??? The cake dome is so Lynne...and the sweet doves...







And I could just see Tootsie doing a "Happy dance" with this little crown...






and lets not forget Vanna here...a new Bust for her Busty collection..she probably already has this one...but she so sweet and heavy...







And girls wouldn't our dear Gollum have fun with all these R.S. Prussia dishes ?? these are so her with all the beautiful tables she does...









Oh I didn't forget our Plate collector Debbie...I just know she would have these hanging on her wall in no time...










This is so MO, she just loves this look and I can just picture this settee in her beautiful home girls...








And how about a new ROO for Ann's kitchen...she could add this to her collections of ROO'S and he could be King of the ROO'S...














And Rose, does this not look like something she would have done?? I just love all the differ fabrics on this chair...
Look at all these Glitter sea shells.. I can just see what Chrissy would do with these on her mantle, and the sugar shuttle wouldn't Anita just love that ?? she's been looking for one... and that arm belongs to my pride and joy...my Grand Daughter Candace...it was her first time to go with us and she had a great time....


Well guys...I hope you enjoyed our shopping trip today at Second Sunday Swap Meet..next month another issue to follow and if you are looking for anything Please let me know and I will hunt it out for you !!!


May all of you have a safe and blessed day...


Hugs and smiles Gloria

marty39 said...

Oh How fun. We don't seem to have any of these flea markets around here, so I'll just take several things that you found there. lol Great post, I loved tagging along. Hugs, Marty

kymber said...

Gloria,
See - this is why you received the Proximidade Award so many times - you take the time to REALLY get to know us all out here in blogland and this post of yours is proof of that!
Sorry that I didn't notice that you already had the award given to you so many times ~smile~ I STILL would have picked you though!
Congrats again my friend!
Kymber

Oh Gloria, I can see why you have so much fun at Second Sunday, girl.. there would be no holding me back. Well.. except for the fact that it only takes money.. girl.. this is just too incredible for words. I'm so glad you shared one of your favorite places to go.. I'm drooling..so must go and wipe my mouth... hugs ~lynne~

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Oh, Gloria! I want those little blue and white cups and saucers! And I see a lot that makes my magpie heart beat fast and faster!

XO,

Sheila :-)

Kathleen Ellis said...

Ohhhh...I wish we had places like this to shop nearby! What fabulous stuff! I could have a lot of fun there!
So glad you enjoyed my newletter...next one will be even better!
;-D Happy Sunday!

Sara's Sweet Surprise said...

What a *sweet* spot you have here. This is my first visit. I'm so happy to have found you today. I adore flea markets!! Having lived in So.Cal it's one of the many things I truly miss. The Northwest is a tad wet for an outdoor market. We have a small one in the summer, but it can't compare. My credit card would have been left with skid marks had I been with you. LOL!
I've enjoyed strolling through your past posts too. I'll be back again.

Sweet Wishes,
Sara

Mo..."Mo's Cottage" said...

Oh Gloria you are such a tease....the good thing is I live less than 2 hours away from the fabulous antique sale....I am so there....I do love that sattee..just fabulous....and the crown....even more fabulous....
Hugs,
Mo ;-)

Dena ~ swaddlecottage said...

I've been wanting to go to a good sale, thank you for taking me with you! :)

Hugs,
Dena

Diane said...

Wow - this is one fantastic flea market! No wonder you're doing the happy dance every month! My car would have been filled... ♥ Diane

ksarra said...

Hi Happy, thanks for taking us along to this fabulous flea market. What treasures!!! Hope you enjoyed your day, my friend.

Glenda said...

It was wonderful to see what is offered on the other side of the country. With 300+ vendors, it must take quite awhile to see even a portion of what is available. It has to make for a tiring but satisfying day. It makes me tired just to think about all the walking involved. I would definitely require a comfortable pair of shoes. Rest up, tomorrow starts another week and a very historic one at that.
Prayers are being offered for you and your family.

Wendy said...

I wish we had a second Sunday swap. Sounds like a lot of fun.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Hi Gloria, This has been Christmas make-upn weekend for us. We had to postpone it after the Arctic blast that hit us in mid-December. After the last of our family left this afternoon, I took down the remaining Christmas decorations and then got on the pc. Thanks for the shoppin trip! I loved every moment. Visiting you today makes me so happy! Hugs, Pam

Hey Gloria,
Thanks girl - for the great idea about using scrapbook paper inside the shelves in my kitchen. Great idea! I can change them out more easily than the paint too.
Thanks for the great suggestion - I am definitely going to try this!
Have a great day!
