DOUBLE-HEADER FRIDAY: FLEA MARKET TIME!

Posted by Lori~

As you recall here, Steve, Mur-Man, and I (and even Roger) had a wonderful July 4 weekend in Detroit Lakes, MN!  As part of our adventure we hit the local flea market.  It was packed!  Actually July 4 weekend is one of the busiest flea market weekends in Detroit Lakes.
Mur-Man caught a ride from Grandpa! 
For those of you in MN, ND, or the area (or major country music fans), this flea market is located near the home of We-Fest (I believe the largest country music fest in the country, but don’t quote me on that).  We-Fest camping remains on my bucket list and Ethne (I will drag her) and I will end up there sometime.  I have been to We-Fest, but I have never actually camped at We-Fest and I believe that is the key to the true experience! (Pretty sure Ethne and I could snag the mother-load of wrangler patches too!)

As far as the flea market…not super successful.  Actually, the only item purchased was a snow cone.  But, lots of inspiration.  Check out the photos below!
Steve eyed this accordian!  Purchase was a NO-GO however!
Bottle cap jewelry--future post WOM-MOMS!
Cool purses--I especially like the one on the end with the pinwheels!  VERY COOL!
Snow cone break--it was a scorcher!
Chalkboard paint jar (you could make this!)
I spotted these from a mile away!
Handy G-Pa:  Get ready to re-create these!

It was a major fun trip to the flea market!  I am off to Devils Lake (the DL of ND) for the week with my family.  Half of WOM-MOM will be live from the lake. Lots to report!

I'm always amazed what people create, come up with and sell these days! Very creative. Enjoy the lake. The BIG BIG and growing lake of North Dakota.
