Treasure Hunting!

Even though it is wicked hot outside, it’s still a great day. There is this really neat flea market in town that I’ll go explore.

It has been a local hot spot for artist of varying types. There is never a shortage of something new and interesting to be found. I think I will get an ice cream and do a little people watching---then hit the market.

I mean it is an absolute feast for the senses! Chefs and farmers sell their products weekly. Antique lovers can mingle and discuss the latest find, while making that perfect discovery…to add to one’s own collection.

My favorite haunts are looking over the selection of books. Sometimes the artwork on the covers is more interesting than the book itself. But I can’t leave without wandering over to the jewelry and vintage clothing. Love, love, love it!

Okay so I am headed out. Insha’Allah I will bring home some treasures.
