Oh, if the number of vendors in this parking lot tripled,
I went to “Georgetown” Flea on the Court House stop this Sunday (today), when I had read there’d be the vintage wares, as opposed to the farmer’s market on Saturdays. Indeed, there were vendors peddling vintage and antique, but there were only 6-7 of them! The whole place had a slight air of desertion.
Among the vendors, the stuff wasn’t bad. Prices varied considerably from rusty, $1 pins to $40, ornate necklaces. Some sold some old furniture/knicknacks, clothing and posters. Pretty much everyone sold some kind of old jewelry. Some vendors had great deals (everything $5!), others had rip-off deals (I asked a woman how much a non-functioning pocket watch was, and after some considerable pondering, she said, “I’ll let it go for $20.” Puh-leeze.)
The best vendor, in my opinion, sold tables of vintage/secondhand purses, all 50%. I got two adorable purses, one red leather and one with a diamond-pattern fabric, all for $20. Not a bad deal, I’d say.
