One of my favorite haunts is the Brooklyn Park Flea Market on the east side of the square in downtown Iola.
I adore the owner, Melinda, she's really down to earth and knows her stuff. She knows what I like and always lets me know when something good comes in. I've spent hours upon hours browsing and have found lots of goodies, not all have come home but a few did.
This parts bin came home a few months ago, I had no plan for where it would go in the house. It has been propped up against the wall since I brought it home. I did take the time to sand off the magic marker, but other than that, nothing.
A few weeks after the parts bin, Mr. Manly Man and I found this old buggy wheel. Thankfully we were in the truck and were able to get it home. It's just hanging out by the chimney outside.
The same day I found the buggy wheel I also spotted this gem. It unfortunately, did not get to come home, Mr. Manly Man really didn't like it. When I went back a few weeks later, it was gone. At least I can look a the picture. . .
I can hardly wait to see what's there next time.
