If you are like me when I see something interesting I get a price in my head of what I want to pay for it. Be ready at the Ocala Super Flea most vendors do not price the items for sale. I found some awesome old bottles, it seems to be a theme with me lately, loving old bottles. The guy was going to sell ALL of them to me for $20.00 It probably was about 35 to 45 bottles, not all were cool, some were crappy and not my style but I figure there is someone for everything and it is my job to find them. However, my mother was being the voice of reason, I have a limited budget for my trip and I have several more stops and I am taking the train home. Whatever I buy I have to ship back or have my mom bring it back in 4 weeks.
I ended up choosing several bottles, for $6.00. When it started drizzling we went inside to the "mall like" part of the Super Flea. Inside was a lot of new stuff, boxes and boxes of items that could have been in a dollar store. A few vintage vendors selling at retail prices, and then there are a few who are there to bargain and sell.
I found a few little mid century cat figurines. At first we couldn't find out who the vendor was, asked a few nearby vendors and it turned out to the the ice cream lady. She had a nearby booth selling ice cream, cookies and candy. So I got my price in my head, how much I wanted to spend. I was thinking $5.00 for both. We got in line, she was super busy, and when we got to the front of the line, and asked, she said, 50 cents. What? HUH? sold! and ice cream for a grand total of $3.00
here are some of my great finds...
