Flea market in Elkhorn, Wisconsin

One of the main reasons I flew to the midwest on Saturday was so I could go to the famous flea market in Elkhorn, Wisconsin, with my friends.  It's only held once a month and yesterday's was the last of the year (they obviously have a short season in Wisconsin!!).  Keep in mind that my body was on California time so when DarLynn told me we were leaving at 5:15, I almost begged off. But ever the trooper, I got up at 5 (3 AM in California)!!

It was well worth it. It opened at 7 AM and this was the line to get in! You can even see some of the fall color on the trees.

Here's DarLynn at one booth where they had the most amazing display of pumpkins and gourds etc.

I really thought Pat should buy these scissors for her shop, but she resisted. They were all of $8 (asking price!!).

I thought this was the funniest thing all day.

Today, we are on our way to Edward's Apple Orchard in Wisconsin where they have the absolutely most delicious apples in the WORLD.

Hope you are having a great Monday.

Love to you all,
Randy in beautiful Wisconsin


  1. Looks like loads of fun--I love flea markets! Great sign!! Are you squeezing in any quilting between adventures? : )

  2. What did you buy?
    Looks you arrived in the night time :0)
    I am not an early bird and I'm not apologizing either.

    Happy Sewing

  3. I grew up in that part of Wisconsin/Illinois and always went to the Elkhorn fair ... there are a number of them in the Midwest which are absolutely treasure troves. Hope you got some Honeycrisp apples ... they are my "new" addiction in the apple world ... YUM!!!

  4. Looks like lots of fun. Treasure hunts usually are.

  5. So glad you enjoyed the flea market. This is my very favorite one and the perfect time of year. Buy anything interesting?
