Flea Market Reality Show

IMG_0119

I really don’t want a reality show film crew following me around at the flea market, but it makes me laugh thinking about it.

Wouldn’t that be a funny show- especially at the flea markets I frequent?

The perfect title for such a show, based on my typical flea market appearance?


Chloe of the Swamps?

Bless Her Heart?


I can only imagine how I looked when I spotted the carved wooden plaque with gold leaf from

Horchow- price $5.

horchow plaque
And yard clothes, bath bun, no contacts or makeup and flip flops aside,

it is the prize that counts.

Oh you are so funny! I'm coming over from Bliss Ranch and am so glad that you are going to be joining us for Tongue-in-Cheek Tuesday! Your blog is new to me and I'm happy to be following via GFC!

OH I do LOVE that plaque. colors, carvings and all. My bro lives in Charleston and would love it too! I can only LOL at having someone secretly following and taping me while I am thrifting...The intense looks of searching...the expression of delighted discovery, yet trying to hide my excitement til I can get to the item so as not to draw attention to it, so that someone else beats me to it...and yes...sometimes possibly the happy dance, or at very least a hop- skip, and jump to the register...that I don't even know I am doing!!! yes..LOL. Being taped??? NOT!!!!!!!! {{hugs}} Laura! :-)

So funny....my thrifting adventures are totally not camera worthy....I have this weird idea that if I dress down, and look terrible people will sell things to me at a better price! :)

A find like this is what makes it all worthwhile! Makes you wonder what the previous owner replaced that treasure with, doesn't it?

Theresa said...

Oh that would be a good show, add in two people fighting over that one piece:) That would have huge ratings! Enjoy your day dear Laura, HUGS!
