Clover and I took a stroll down to the flea market for some Sunday browsing. Of course our first stop is always to see the vintage clothing lady with her tarp o' treasures:
This is her. She's so adorable and very sweet. Apparently she used to have vintage clothing shops in the area and is now selling off her stock at the monthly flea market. I can only imagine how incredible this stock must be as every month she has so many new and amazing pieces! She just piles them all out on the huge tarp for vintage hungry bargain hunters to dig through, and believe me there are some amazing deals to be had.
Just ask this girl on the right, she had a huge pile of awesomeness by the time she was done digging, a few items I would have liked to have snagged for myself, including the sheer white dress being laid onto the pile in the previous pic. And who's that I see back there knee deep in vintage goodness?
Well if it isn't the lovely Laura Jane and her son Karl, who we just happened to run into. Imagine that, what are the odds? Pretty good actually ;) She lives right down the street too.
After some recent thrifting and rummage saleing the day before, I was feeling like I needed to take a little break from buying myself more clothes, and I hope you all haven't started getting sick of my outfit posts yet because I should have a bunch coming up. Unfortunately though, I didn't buy that adorable little number with the strawberries that she was trying to tempt me with.
Why then, you may be wondering, did I head straight for this vendor? Well, lets just say I was shopping for a friend ;) but more on that in a later post.
This was another exceptionally well-dressed browser, hence my feeble attempt at stealth street style photography.
I then followed the musical sounds of a country hoe-down all the way across the parking lot to find, to my delight, square dancers!
They were called The Circle 'N Squares, and they were so freakin' cute! Especially that lady in the middle there, she stole my heart :) They were handing out flyers and do-se-do-ing there little hearts out to promote their square dancing classes on Thursday nights. First week is free...
... and seeing this fun footage of square dancing in Central Park, circa 1945, makes me actually want to go!
Now all I need is this yellow dress, a petticoat, and a partner (because pigs WILL fly, as they say, before I ever get Lucas out on a square dance floor ;)
