Flea Market Haven

Once again, I hit pay dirt yesterday while roaming around the local flea market.

One booth made it all worthwhile…it was that perfect combination of funky vintage merchandise and killer prices!

I also dug through pounds and pounds of cut out metal pieces for the letters in ALTER EGO MEXICANA

…to make a sign for the upcoming studio tour.

The flea market continues to give me a rush and be my ultimate weekend paradise!
