We had a great weekend. Andrew's mom decided to make an impromptu trip to San Francisco for the weekend. It's always so fun to have house guests, especially family that we don't get to see often enough.
Andrew and I have been wanting to go to the Treasure Island Flea Market for a while now, and it happened to fall on this weekend. (It's the last weekend of the month for you locals). Andrew's mom is also a fan of flea markets, so she was as excited to go as I was.
I think Andrew and his sister got a little burnt out looking at countless booths of old "junk," but Andrew's mom and I had a blast looking for treasures amongst the piles of well-loved antiques and treasures.
We both found a few things we couldn't live without. I had been looking for an old scale to put in our kitchen, and I found one for just $10! I also walked away with two Pyrex pie dishes for only $2 each, as well as an old cut glass decanter for our whiskey bar. Andrew's mom found a cute old Pepsi crate and another small, vintage food box she plans to use in her kitchen.
It was a beautiful, warm day. Fortunately, there was no fog and we had an amazing view of the city. Of course, major blogger fail, I forgot to charge my camera battery, and it died right when we arrived. Of course, I did manage to snap a few pictures on my iPhone.
It was such a great day! I hope to go back again next month to see what else I can find. Do you like flea markets? Are there any good ones in your area?
