It was Saturday morning, I pulled out of the school driveway and already my teen daughter and I were having the big where-to-go-next discussion (if you know what I mean ;-)
Me, all in my errands-list-efficient driving mode (heck, gas is getting pricey - $4.03/gal at our local Chevron) and she, all in the what's-in-it-for-me mode.

Turning south by the church across the street - bright handmade signs shout FLEA MARKET TODAY. Our negotiations stop instantly as we're now on the same page. We make the u-turn and find a spot at the back of the parking lot.
We've arrived quite late in the sale. Vendors, having their first breather after the opening rush, are reorganizing the chaos. DRAT - I'm low on cash, I'll have to be very discerning - and there's a BAKE SALE too. Sigh.
Still, I pass a few dollars for allowance to the teen and we split up to spy treasures.
I think my big winner was the bake sale!! A lovely loquat tart and a cup of coffee for me, and choc chip cookies for the girl.
And in hindsight, I may have offered to buy the entire stock of the macrame beads - loving the vintage colors pictured there against last weeks beach chair score.
The teen had the best bargain of all - batting her baby blues earned a free blue purse from an admiring vendor.
Leaving the sale and after errands returning home. Our local Chevron gas price has risen to $4.07. Sheesh, don't you hate that?
