It’s been a busy few weeks. My efforts of sharing my recent finds have suffered somewhat because of it. I recently made a change in my work schedule in hopes of allowing myself more time to pursue my passion for buying and selling vintage and antique finds.
Most of my posts have been dedicated to the buying. This one details one of my favorite venues for selling.
I believe the proper method for flea marketing is row after row of outdoor vendors with stacks of vintage and antique merchandise. Don’t talk to me about flea markets with largely new or gently used discount store merchandise that has no soul. I want see items that have built in character. That is how I prefer to sell my wares.
Swap days provides a venue that doesn’t perfectly fill my idea of an ideal flea market, but it’s close. You will find a mix of goods and even an occasional chicken or two.
I braved the weather which was mostly very windy and cold to participate in my first sale of the season and have the wind burned face to prove it. Despite the weather sales were pretty good.
I didn’t get much of a chance to buy, but did purchase a rather odd shoe last from a neighboring vendor. I like the odd and unusual pieces and had never seen this particular style before. The price wasn’t bad so now I own it.
