Saturday at the Onion Shed

George, Reese and I ventured out to Farmersville on Saturday to check out their flea market. It's held at the old Onion Shed (pictured above) the first Saturday of each month. We didn't arrive there until about 2:00 and many of the vendors were already packing up.

We didn't find anything we couldn't live without at the flea market, so we went to a few antique stores. I think this was Reese's first time to go antique shopping outside of the womb. I went quite a bit before he was born.

Farmersville is my favorite place to go antiquing, because the prices are pretty reasonable. Here's what I bought, and I spent just under $10 total:

A vintage Santa candle and a cute
Woodpecker Woodware bowl from the '50s

My first piece of milk glass for my new collection. I think I actually
already own a milk glass hen, but it must be boxed up somewhere.

George even managed to stay entertained by looking for Dr Pepper items for his office at work. He found a vintage bottle that he purchased, as well as some wrestling video from the '80s. I turned my nose up at the video, but he said it would bring back good memories from his childhood. And it was only 50 cents. Plus, it has Kerry Von Erich. I actually saw him wrestle in person when I was little, and (I can't believe I'm admitting this) I had a framed picture of him in my room. I think I still have that picture somewhere.

It will be fun to see what Reese decides to collect when he's a little older.
