Fashion and Fun after Fifty

Hello Friends and Happy Saturday!

Here we are again, the 1st Saturday of the month so you know where to find me – set up at Dutch Country Farmers Market in Middletown.  I am still trying to purge household items, clothing, books, shoes anything I don’t need in order to make a few extra dollars and leave less to pack or donate when we decide to downsize.

Flea Market in Middletown

As in most states you’ll find community yard sales, but did you know that the longest yard sale starts in North Addison, Michigan and goes through to Gadsen, Alabama?   It is 690 miles long and people stake out their front yards along Hwy 127 for 4 days to sell new and used items!

According to the 127sale.com website, the yard sale officially starts the first Thursday in August and runs through to the following Sunday but this year it started on the 1st.  People travel from the North, South, East and West some make it an annual event renting RV’s and camping out year after year.  “An exchange of cultures with a common goal; to look, buy and sale!”

Can you imagine taking a week’s vacation to go to a Yard Sale?  Oh well, I’ll just stick with my little space in the parking lot on the first Saturday of the month from April to November!

Flea Markets are fun because you never know what you’ll find!

Saturday was an overcast and cloudy day which put me in the mood to do a little thrifting.  With a dollar limit in mind and a $10 gift card I headed south to Goodwill in Smyrna.  Upon entering the store I grabbed a cart which was taken by an associate because it remained empty and idle for too long.  I was looking around in search of Cowboy boots and I hate pushing the cart in and out of the aisles during my search.  I didn’t find the boots but found a few other items along with another empty cart on the other side of the store.

Aqua Maxi Dress – $5.00 // Bold Spirit Reversible, Suede Jacket – $7.00//St. Johns Bay Green Denim Skirt – $3.75

Style co Polka Dot Top – $3.75// Mootsies Tootsies Faux Leather/Croc Loafers – $5.00

Atrium Collection Blue and White Houndstooth Jacket with Bow – $6.00

As I headed back north to Middletown, I stopped at a small yard sale on Route 13 and purchased a belt and small makeup bag spending $2.00, the ladies were grateful since they hadn’t had a sale all day.  Goodwill in Middletown is undergoing renovations, “to make it a more pleasant shopping experience” which is what the sales associate said – lol.  Once again, the hunt for Cowboy boots was futile however, I did find a few nice skirts for the fall and winter season.

Multi Color, long sleeve top – $3.75// GAP Tweed Skirt – $3.75// Le Suit Black and White Houndstooth Skirt – $3.75

Chaus Green Skirt – $3.75// Mossimo Bronze Peep Toe Shoes – $4.00

Small stain in the tweed skirt came out in the wash and I will be removing the bows on the jacket because it cuts tight across the chest.

Once again we have been blessed with a beautiful, sunny day and to top it off it’s FRI-YAY!! Traffic this morning heading north was light because most people are heading south to the Jersey Shore – thank you my friends!! This afternoon I may not be so lucky with the south bound traffic heading to the Delaware beaches. Where ever you are headed this weekend I hope that you have a fan-tas-tical, fun in the sun time with tropical drinks that have tiny little umbrellas in them – be safe my friends!!
