I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. The Northeast finally had a good, hot one... a real scorcher! My mother and I woke up before dawn on Saturday, and drove out into the rising sun, for a day we'll never forget. Madison Bouckville blew our thrifting/junking minds! We arrived as the gates opened at 9am, and spent hour after hour discovering new bits of vintage bliss! We didn't even see half of it before the heat got to us, and we felt like we needed to find air conditioning. We drove out of the cornfields... yes, it's in the middle of acres and acres of cornfields, and headed into town. As we turned onto Main street, we gasped... we squealed... we zipped into another parking spot! The entire town was one ginourmous flea market... the best darn flea market we'd ever seen!! The fun continued... who needed AC? The sun was going down, anyway. We'll not miss this for the world next year. Mark your calendars, if you're anywhere close by. The prices are great! The vintage wares are delicious. I never need go to another garage sale/auction/anything again... just this annual trip. I promised to share, but keep in mind: there is so much more then the photos I took. These are just some glimpses of what inspired me:
So good, wouldn't you say?! The only thing that was missing on such a perfect day, was having my little sister with us... oooh now that would have been a party! Today is her birthday. How I ache for that sweet girl (I know she's been a woman for a good long time... but she'll always be my baby!) not to be so far away. Happy Birthday A!!!! You were with us!
