Cedarburg - Fun at the Flea Market

The weather was perfect for the Cedarburg Maxwell Street Flea Market yesterday.  Kathy & I brought a lot of our "tired" inventory to move out, along with some fresh finds.

 The best part of any flea market is people watching.  This guy was checking himself cute!

This guy should have checked himself out in the mirror.  Cute?  Ummmm...not so much.
It was Kathy's birthday and we celebrated by sampling all of the good food on the grounds including, the Big Bar, the deep-fried cheese curds and this delicious Kettle Korn, made on site in a big, (surprise!), kettle.

I never did find Mary Ann's space, or Margaret's, or get around to see Kathy-from-upper-Michigan's booth.  We were in the same neighborhood as Jeanine, (ChiPPy!-SHaBBy!)  Her vignettes are always amazing and things were sproutin' wings and flying out of her booth.  I loved the way she paired the hydrangeas with the whites...

This is about all she had left at the end of day when Jeff came to help her load.  I think this photo has an "American Gothic" vibe, don't you?

 Cedarburg was the last show we're doing until Junk Bonanza; we'll be loading the vans a week from tomorrow.  Frightening...I'd better get busy!


  1. The firat two images are just a hoot Jan! And Miss Chippy Shabby does look American Gothic! hugs♥olive

  2. Looks like a great day! I haven't done an outdoor show...looks like fun!

  3. ....Jan you CHEEKY girl.... :o) !! Thanks for the eye candy....Shirtless men (who should know better) aside....hahahahaha....!!

    I'm CHAMPIN at the bit to see EVERYTHING & am a little 'blue' that I won't be part of the 'set up' process....I think that's such a FUN part of being involved in a Show....Don't get me wrong....I know it's hard work but the camaraderie shared with fellow vendors can't be beat....I'd LOVE to be a vendor at Junk Bonanza next year....I WONDER how I could 'work that'....??!!

    I hope at the end of JB you are left with next to nothing like Jeanine was....!!

    Cheers for now Lovey & have a GREAT week,
    Tamarah :o)

  4. Looks like it was a great sale, and the food was good too! My Grandma lived in Cedarburg about 25 years ago, but I hear it's a really great place to visit nowadays. Lots of things to see and do, and it seems like there's always a great antique show or flea market happening!

  5. OMG!*!*! I soooooo enjoyed us being neighbors!!! Kathy's BiRthDaY - "wish I had known"... Thanks sooooo much for the "fun pics" & link... Jeanine, ChiPPy!-SHaBBy!

  6. You guys are so cute.

    See you next week, make sure you introduce yourself... I'll be the crazed one setting up in the main room.

  7. OMG I saw that hotty in pic #4 too! It was ever worse from the front. What was he thinkin! And it wasn't even hot out.

    You gals put together a great looking booth and the weather could not have been more perfect!

    Cheese curds? Where were they? All these years selling there and I never knew there were curds.

    Happy belated birthday to Kathy. If we only knew we could have had someone sing to her on the P A.

  8. I will definitely stop by your booth at JB! We're getting there on Fri afternoon. I'm really looking forward to it!!!

    :) T
