I woke up early Friday morning to the sound of heavy rain hitting my bedroom window. It was the same morning that I planned to go to Antique Alley, a twenty five mile long route of flea markets, tag sales and estate sales. I was a little bummed, but decided that the rain wasn't going to stop me. I have always heard that rainy days are the best days to get good deals because not as many people are shopping. I think several others had the same idea, because I saw plenty of rain coats and umbrellas walking around with eager shoppers underneath.
This year I counted at least 15 flea markets along the route and I didn't even travel the full 25 miles.
I enjoyed just looking at the different booths in the flea markets. Some unique finds to be had - wish I had brought more money.
Be prepared to stop about every 30 feet for some sort of sale at a church, house, barn or country store. There are plenty of sales on the side roads.

Hope to see you there next time!!
