We finally made it. Webster with Don and Evelyn!

(Entrance to the old section which is acres)
The last time we scheduled Webster it rained us out, but today we made it. It is fun watching things at a flea mkt like Webster. Maybe fifty thousand people and 5,000 venders. A big thing here in Florida now is Strawberries. They were selling for $8 a flat on average. That is about 8 quarts I guess.
(There are 8-10 big bldgs like this) in the newer part.
Webster is unique in that it is the wholesale place for ‘stuff’ as well as retail. Sunglasses by Gautier sell for $24 a dozen. In wholesale, anyone can buy as long as you buy in bulk. The same glasses sell for from $3 to $15 a pair on over in the Flea Mkt.
It was wall to wall people, Anyplace there was a demo, you could hardly get by. We laugh at the cleaning demo’s because once Don and I were so impressed, we each bought the carpet cleaning stuff. On site, in the demo, the guy cleaned pure grease and black oil on a white carpet. I felt the oil & grease, it was real. But then at home, nada. hahaha.
A big thing now is polishing headlights, several demo’s on that. I know how much work that is I just polished the headlights on the RV. It is a job!
I have to laugh at some of the clothes. Then they probably laugh at me. It is all fun and entertaining. I did not buy any popcorn, (ahhh, it smelled so good) or get any ice cream, and it looked good.
Don took me into some antique stalls and told me about the stuff. Don is a collector. It seemed he had one of most of the stuff we saw! I only knew one thing he didn’t, and it was an antique nail puller. HA! I am supposed to know that stuff!
Most of the stuff is dust collectors but very pretty. I did see some spandex jeans, but Sherry would have no part of them.
DOGS! they have puppies for sale and none less than $400 some up to $800. Do people who go to Flea Mkts have that kind of money?
Did you ever see a ‘SPLAT’? this is a little form, like a ball or an egg, if you throw it down on a slick clean surface it goes ‘Splat and flattens out like a fried egg. and with ten seconds returns to it’s original shape. they were $4 a piece one place and $2 another. If I go back I am getting me one!! hahahaha
Thanks for coming this way,
Did you ever notice that when you blow in a dog's face, he gets mad at you, but when you take him on a car ride, he sticks his head out the window?
Not sure what this was, but it looks like it was a GM late 30’s originally. But I do like it!
