On Saturday morning I ventured out to my first flea market of the year. There aren't too many flea markets ever in my area, so when I saw a sign that there is a flea market for three consecutive Saturdays (starting this past Saturday), I knew I had to go. Even if it meant that Joe was out of town and I had five of my six in tow. The kids were amazing. It helped that the weather was nice and that it was a smallish flea market. We were able to go through it in about an hour's time.
I found this little green chest made of solid wood. It's going to be repainted (red, maybe) and I'm going to switch out the knobs (glass, maybe). The dealer estimates it is from the 40's or 50's.
I also bought a bunch of vintage Pyrex. The price was so reasonable, that it was hard to pass up.

one white Snowflake Mixing Bowl;
and two Spring Blossom (2) Mixing Bowls. I think the total cost for all five bowls was $8. Very reasonable. And I actually do use them. They just aren't for show. I probably would have bought more, but it was hard to carry the Pyrex, push the stroller and corral the kids. I didn't trust the kids to carry the bowls.
Yesterday I was struck down with another stomach virus. I stayed in bed the entire day, except to go to the bathroom. I'm happy to have survived to live another day. It was iffy ... And I'm not sure if I will ever have an appetite again.
