After leaving the 7 mile garage sale we drove up to Glenmora, Louisiana which is about 20 miles south of Alexandria. Its a pretty little city with lovely flea market stores on the main street. Here are some photos I shot in around around Glenmora.
Our mother taught us never to go on a road trip without snacks and drinks, so with this family tradition I made sure our back seat guests never wanted for anything. We all enjoyed the snacks and drinks!
There are lots of people who make headboards with old mantles. This is the firs time I see them take a waterbed headboard and make a mantle! Some people are so creative! We were looking for a headboard and got a few ideas here on how we could make one for Erica’s bedroom!
Someone very creative thought to take all sorts of old buttons, earrings and broaches and make this adorable Christmas decoration.
The little TomTom navigation system told us to turn around a whole bunch of times, wanting us to go on up to Alexandria instead of taking back roads up to Glenmora through Turkey Creek, Dave said he would have done better with this mounted on the dashboard of his truck than the TomTom.
Found that pretty little jadite refrigerator box, but it was pricy… there was an extra lid on top and just the lid was $20. I heart the cranberry glass on the right at the bottom. Another set that i just love but there were only six glasses. They were in mint condition, not a scratch anywhere on them.
I adored this little blue and white tea cup, I would have purchased it, but that would have started a whole new collection and you know we can’t have that! I could never pass up any opportunity to make the baby sister put on a hat and pose … so cooperative and isn’t she lovely, the hat matched her pretty red shirt! You can read her wonderful and entertaining blog here: Under The Cajun Sun.
I look forward to our next flea marketing and antiquing adventure, I tried to talk Dee into going somewhere today but she has too much to do in preparation for the swim meet this weekend that her kiddos will be participating in.
