The 2015 Woodruff Place Flea Market

Guys, I had such a great Saturday (again!) at the Woodruff Place Flea Market!  I sold SO. MUCH. STUFF. that I decided to not go back for Sunday's small crowds.  Instead I slept for 12 hours, which after only sleeping about 3 the night before, was AMAZING!

Anyways, onto the views of my "booth" from the market...


 I love Woodruff Place.  It is 3 beautiful streets of historic, many Victorian style, homes.  It makes a beautiful backdrop to the market.  The vendors rent a yard from one of the home owners.  We had great hosts this year.  They had a piano on their porch that anyone was allowed to play.  They also had an old bouncy horse that the kids were allowed to play on.


I sold so many records!  In fact, I was able to sell ALL OF THEM by the end of Saturday! :)
I also sold all of the windows!


Most of the stuff pictured here sold!


 See all those orchard baskets, wood crates and plant stands?
GONE!

Also, if I had a dollar for each time I heard the "Price Albert in a can" joke on Saturday, I'd be filthy rich.





Pyrex wasn't a huge seller this year, but that's okay.  It will head to my antique booth.


Here we condensed down the tables, after all we had sold.  This was after only an hour into the market.


Finally, I added a butterscotch spacer to my bakelite stack, so I now have a collection!  I hope to add more soon.

What did you guys do this weekend?

  1. That's great, Melissa! We have a section of town that looks very similar to where you were hosted (love that idea!). Ours hosts a big sale the first weekend of May. This weekend, I was able to get to a couple sales - one estate its 2nd weekend, 50% off, and a yard sale hosted by our United Way, at its tail end, so I got some deals. Buying is more fun than selling when it comes to the work, right?

  2. You sold stuff as fast as I bought stuff. So exhausted I cannot even blog about it until later in the week. So glad your sale was a big success!

  3. Glad to hear how well you did. I am sure the Pyrex will eventually sell. Here the colors people seek are pink and turquoise.

  5. Looks like a great market that I would like to visit. You have a good eye & buy smart, so you sell well. Wow, you really cleared your tables. Pyrex around here is past it's peak, and either sits or sells for lower prices.

    Great share Melissa!

  6. What a fun market! So happy you did so well. Wonder why the Pyrex wasn't a big seller?
