Flea Market Frenzy

Whenever my children come to visit, we head for the Wellfleet Flea Market, the ultimate place to find just about everything you need - or don't need but suddenly feel like you cannot live without. Today the weather was perfect for flea-market shopping. The black-top of the drive-in theater did not burn the feet. A pleasant breeze whipped off my hat as we set off through the stalls with hundreds of other thrift-shoppers. The flea market is the place to go if you enjoy making deals. It is often possible to wrangle lower prices from the merchants who gather Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays throughout the summer. There were lots of T-shirts and sunglasses on sale, and jewelry. We made the usual stop at discount cosmetics for my daughter-in-law. I did not find any treasures this time but enjoyed the excursion anyway. The flea market is always fun!
