So today, we (my family and I) went to the Hillsville flea market. My pal Amy joined us and we had a really delightful time hunting for treasures. As it is every year, it was very hot and crowded and a fascinating mass of humanity. I wish I could have taken more pictures, but it ended up pouring down rain and we had to leave sooner than we'd planned. I'm pretty sure that if I had brought my umbrella with me rather than leaving it in the car, the skies would have stayed sunny and cloudless.
We ate caramel corn and kettle corn for lunch, walked through mud puddles, admired all the antiques, laughed at the bizarre things people try to sell, and all ended up soaked to the bone due to the sudden storm. I was pleased to end up with some salt and pepper shakers, blue mason jars, and beautiful Pyrex dishes and so thankful to partake in this family tradition for another year.
