Flea Market Day

I don't know if you're like me, but I love finding a great bargain.
Yesterday, me and my girlfriends set out early on a flea market excursion to see if we could find "the greatest bargain."

The Plantation Flea Market is hosted once a month, every last Saturday of the month. It is advertised as The Ultimate Flea Market with DJ music and free admission with lots of stalls.
These included crafts, clothing, foodstuff, plants, cosmetics, household items, veggies and fruits, books, face painting for the kids, and lots of health related items like massages, blood pressure and sugar/cholesterol testing.

My friend had a craft stall.

All variety of stalls

Clothing stalls

Another friend had a jewelry stall

Lots of fresh ground produce

After wandering around for a while, it was time for a quick snack.
Fish anyone??  Flying fish cutter and local delicacy fish cakes.

We did what most women innate gene that only women seem to have, kicked into high gear, and yes, we shopped.
We bought books, foodstuff and clothing, and left quite happy with our to find more bargains at other weekend sales.


  1. I love flea markets, car boot sales and charity shops (goodwill/op) because there's always the chance of 'that picture' or 'that book'. The street markets in France are particularly good for food and all sorts of things too.

  2. I love a good flea market as well. I usually come home with lots of "bargains" but I'm not sure that it's just the female of the species that has the gene. John usually spends more than I do.

  3. GB, we have quite a few flea markets, fairs, car boot sales and the salvation army here that are more than enough to satisfy the thirst of bargain hunters like myself.
    Would love to visit the street markets in France one of these good old days....sounds like fun.

  4. Missy, I know the guys love to shop in their own way, but mostly on stuff like power tools and pc equipment and such. I find too that most guys don't comparison shop like we do.
    We girls have got this thing down to an a science.....
