Shady Hollow Flea Market

Summer vacation is a time to recharge and regroup. For me, it is always a time to look around, see new things, and collect inspiration for new projects. One of my favorite things to do is visit the local flea market, so when I get the chance to visit a flea market in a different town, I am doubly excited.

We vacation in Northern Minnesota. The whole family winds it’s way up to a resort near Detroit Lakes, called Fair Hills.
Just outside of the magical grounds is The Shady Hollow Flea Market, and I was given time off to go!

Here is a little sampling of what I saw.
What are those? Can we do some?

This big bag just screams out at me.

But I think it is a picking bag (cotton? corn?), and it is still on the metal holder. I don’t think I could separate the original pair.

Inside one of the little “houses” was this display of vintage coffee cans.

Oh, it makes me swoon.

Near by was the Astronaut.

They wanted $100. Wha Ha. Well, I looked them up on e-bay, and ho there was still money to be made.

Hear that sound? It’s the phone ringing. “Hoarders” is calling, and they are trying to schedule when they are going to come film our show. Luggage limitations prevented me from doing any further damage. I did purchase one present, and one little organization box for myself.
