I think the first real flea market I ever seen was in Athens or Istanbul. But since then I have been curious about flea markets so we go every once in awhile. Here in central Florida they have a flea mkt at Webster that is the grand daddy of all flea markets. This is where the dealers come to shop in bulk. But there are thousands of dealers who are there to sell retail.
(from the internet)
Striking my eye this time was “HAND MILKED GOAT SOAP”. Now why would I care if the soap was made from machine milked or hand milked goats milk???
I laugh every time I am at Webster. My friend Don and I watched this guy pour thick oil on a white carpet and with this wonder cleaner, cleaned it up. Don had a stain in his carpet caused by Walnut Stain. The guy was not surprised,”Believe it or not that is very common, and this stuff will make fast work of it.” Well of course we should NOT have believed it, but we did.
We both bought some. Since then any cleaner is called Jack & Don’s miracle cleaner. So we got took.
But I still like to go to Flea markets. People watching there, is better than Wal Mart. I usually find something, if it is no more than a book, I cannot live without.
There are some absolutely beautiful ‘dust collectors’ (what-nots) from the orient, but the motor home does not allow room for those, thank goodness. The last time we were there I saw a beautiful Ships Wheel, but it was too big for our use, and besides I have a new one for our name plate.
I have been noticing a lot of dentist tools, I am tempted to get some. hahahahahaha
Thanks for coming this way.

did I put this on? The rarest car in History the 1954 88 Oldsmobile. GM would not allow it to be built they knew it would out shine the Corvette.
