flea market!

Last weekend we had some of the most beautiful weather I've experienced since moving to North Carolina. The sun was shining, there was a nice breeze, the temperatures reached the 80s! We just had to head outdoors. 
[unfortunately we're back in the 50s this week...boo]

We decided to go to the flea market located on the North Carolina fairgrounds. It is HUGE and there are so many neat things to look at. They sell just about anything you could imagine. Vintage cameras, vintage furniture, vintage toys, vintage records...vintage everything basically.  I wish I could have bought so many things buuut we just don't have money to be wasting away at the flea market. We couldn't walk away empty handed though. After walking around the entire flea market and visiting every table we went back to the very first table we stopped at to buy the very first item that caught my eye.
 
Check out my awesome bowl:
Well, I think it's awesome anyway. :-)

Here are a few more interesting items that caught my eye:
