The plan was to make a trip to the Irvine Flea to sell today, but how can you get excited to go on a 2 hour road trip with the price of gas? It's depressing. Last year, we were able to rent a large truck for the flea market, split the gas and still came home with a wad in our pocket. This year it's different, and it's not just the gas. Buyers are spending less than last year. I was told about one seller who normally averages $5000 at the flea, is now averaging only $1500 a trip. We considered cramming as much as possible into one small truck. It just didn't seem worth it to me. We do have a local flea market just 10 miles from the house, but with only a few rows of the "old stuff" , you just don't get as many people looking for the "good stuff". We may give it a try though, and it will probably be the 2nd Sunday of each month. I didn't get much done this weekend because somebody wouldn't stay off my lap, but that's ok..I loved the distraction. Sophie was her usual self. I swear..pugs must sleep 18 hours a day. Her snoring is the only snoring I can tolerate. I think it's just precious. :) I did manage to get a few pictures taken, so new items will be in the shop by 6pm. A little bit of this and that...hope there is something for everyone!
