Webster Flea Market

Tim had the day off (a rare joy!) so we went over to the flea market in Webster. We only go a couple of times a year for a couple of reasons: it's about an hour and a half away, and it's only on Mondays. 
We had a really nice time, although it was miserably hot. Tim bought a portable fish finder for $5; we're not sure if it works, but it was worth a gamble. Hope and her friend each had some money and found lots of little treasures. I forgot to take pictures while we were there, of course.
I found a lovely bag of yarn for only $25!
Nine skeins of Lion Brand Wool-Ease in Fisherman.
Eleven skeins of Deborah Norville Serenity Chunky in Pristine.
Four skeins of Couture. I'm not familiar with this brand, but I love the color.
It's a wool/mohair/nylon blend, so I'm curious to see how it works up.
We took our time getting home, stopping at Hobby Lobby and to see several used RVs for sale. I had put ribs in the crockpot before we left this morning, so dinner was pretty much done. I made a couple of sides and we spent the rest of the afternoon and evening relaxing.
I hope everyone had a wonderful, relaxing Labor Day!
Thanks for reading!
Blessings :-)

Today's Inspiration


  1. Oh, goodness....Webster???? I love that place but I've NEVER found yarn! Is it under the roofed over places or across with the antiques? I live just north of Polk City, have for about 14 years and we homeschooled our girls all the way through school. If you need encouragement let me know...I miss schooling my girls. Have a grandson that's going to be starting (sort of) Before 5 in a row and I'm going to do some things with him. Enjoy the yarn!

    1. Hi Jan!
      So nice to meet you :-) This was the 3rd time we'd been to Webster, and I'd never seen yarn there before either. I found it on the antiques side under the hot sun.
      I may take you up on that encouragement; with my daughter starting middle school, we're getting more and more people treating us as though we are crazy for still homeschooling her. She enjoys it and is doing well, it's just hard to always be on the defensive.
      How fun to be homeschooling your grandson a little; that's such a fun age :-)
      Thanks for stopping by :-)

  2. Sounds like ya'll had a great day - and what an awesome yarn find. :)

    1. Despite the heat, we really did have a lot of fun :-)

  3. Great price for all that yarn. I really like Wool-ease and have used it a lot. I haven't tried the others, but I'm sure it will be fun to find the perfect project for them. Your ribs sound good, I've been wanting to try ribs in the crock pot. Take care, Heather

    1. I've never tried it, but I've loved the projects you made. I know I'll have fun with it :-)
      I'd never made ribs in the crockpot but it seemed like a good time to do it. We made the boneless pork ones with a little garlic salt and a cup of Coke; they were so tender they fell apart.
