Seen at the Flea - Elkhorn Wrap-up

Elkhorn Antique Flea Market, you are the b-e-s-t!  I had to run over to the office during the afternoon and stopped to snap a few pics along the way, wishing for time to really shop.  I'm sorry I didn't get into some of the buildings to check out other friends.

My pal Margaret and  her granddaughter were enjoying the great weather. 

I can't believe that this piece wasn't snapped up right away.

Julie & Ann of Tattered Tiques.  These fun sisters are high-energy and have great stuff.  Their Mom wasn't able to be at Elkhorn this time, but the three of them have a shop that I'm dying to visit one of these days.  (Thanks for the shout-out on your blog girls!)

 This was the first Elkhorn for Laura from B&B's Nest

I hate to think of what I missed in her booth since I didn't get there until late in the day.  Laura puts things together in the most delicious way.  

I can't end this post without thanking all of our wonderful customers, old friends and new.  August is traditionally the slowest of the shows at Elkhorn but you really surprised us this time. Industrial, clocks & flea bags were the 'hot' categories.  (I really never expected to sell snowshoes in August either!) We truly do appreciate your business.  

***On a personal note, we'd been concerned that we hadn't seen one of our favorite shoppers this year at Elkhorn. She was there yesterday and it was so good to see her.  It's not our story to tell so I won't say more, but dear one if you are reading this, please know that you are in our hearts & prayers. 

Next up for us?  JUNK BONANZA!  WooooooooHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!  
Follow the Junk Bonanza blog and facebook page for the latest news, and make plans to be there. We know that you will love it!


  1. You lead such an exciting life! I would just love to do what you're doing. It's always been my dream to have an antique shop, but doing these shows looks like it's lots of fun!

  2. We were on our way to see you at the very end of the day... and got side tracked by a glider, which is the one thing I've been looking for, for two years! Hope the show was good for you,

  3. Y'all just seem to have the best shows out there and here I sit in Virginia but my son lives outside Chicago and I always try to hit some antique shops or fleas while I am there. But it's usually in December when I am there and I miss the good stuff. Thanks so much for your visit. Always always welcome at The Vintage Nest.

  4. looks like one fun many great things to buy!!!


  5. Wow, what a day!
    Hoping to visit
    Junk Bonanza this much fun!
