Love in a Dirty Flea Market

I remember being led through flea markets by my parents. Dark and dusty booths housed beautiful clocks, coins from around the world, suits of armor, teacups I knew my Grandmother would love. I still find myself filled with childlike anticipation as I begin by deciding whether to head left or right as I step through the door.

I kneel on creaky floors, pulling out stacks of plates, or boxes of dishes jumbled together with loveless disregard. I grumble at the booths full of un-priced items. I glower at the booths full of makeup and skincare overstock. I wish to High Heaven I'd grabbed a basket, and wander with both hands full. Heavy ironstone mugs hang like rings from my fingers.

My husband, who loves me, smiles when I bring home my finds. He's amused because I'm going to describe each piece as if it's not right there in front of him. And he's relieved that I'm going to be listing most of these wonderful things right here on Etsy. For you.

P.S. My headline cracks me up.
