For years I have wanted to attend this sale, and even though there are 4 or 5 shows per year, I never made it…..until this year. Thanks to a three day weekend in honor of the 4th of July, I had the time to use a day to make the two hour trip to Dutchess County for the Stormville Airport Flea Market. (http://www.stormvilleairportfleamarket.com/)
I went on Saturday, July 5. The weather was absolutely GORGEOUS which made the ride there and back more enjoyable. This sale really has EVERYTHING: antiques, new items, dollar store fare, clothes, accessories, vitamins, food and spices-not to mention so much yummy food, drinks and desserts to enjoy while shopping or when taking a well deserved break.
I like to take in my surroundings when I am out and about, and Dutchess County is beautiful and scenic even from an airport.
I saw so many interesting things including:
A wall of cast iron items….
70’s pop culture…
Just pure 70’s…
A sign my dad would have appreciated…
And something I wanted but passed on (it was sooooo heavy plus I just do not have the room…..but now that I think of it, I could have left it outside…. sigh!!!)
I did not find any antiques or junk I wanted enough to buy. There were a few items I inquired about (a Peanuts thermos, 6 vintage wooden blocks, an old suitcase) but the dealers were not open to negotiating & I did not want the items badly enough to spend top dollar. I do understand, as this was a two day sale and I was there on day one.
I did, however, treat myself to a gi-normous lemonade which I watched them make…freshly squeezed lemon juice, sugar, water and a whole lot of ice…DELICIOUS!!! This lasted me all day!!!
On my way home, I took a few scenic shots….
…before driving over the Connecticut state line. There I found a diner with a name I could not resist (given my devotion to Bruce Springsteen) and enjoyed a yummy dinner.
The Stormville Airport Antiques Show & Flea Market is definitely a sale you should check out. There is sooo much to see and tons of junk for those of you who love a repurpose challenge. My only advice would be to go on the second day of the sale for the best prices.
Till next time, fellow vixens!!! Happy digging!!!
