DC Big Flea This Weekend ... Want To Come Along?

The DC Big Flea is at the Dulles Expo Center this weekend!  I'm meeting up with Deborah, from 'Confessions of a Craigslist Junkie', and we plan to be there right when the doors open on Saturday morning.  

Would you like to come along with us and hunt some junk?

(I mean 'junk' in the best, most complimentary way ... of course.)

To be honest, whenever I go to an antique show or flea market, I rarely buy anything anymore ... I always do a whole lot more looking and talking than anything else.  My house is fairly full, and I have to move something OUT the door in order to bring anything else IN.  With this rule in place, I have to make sure that I totally LOVE anything to consider buying it ... unless it's small and I can sneak it in (just kidding).

Deborah and I would love to have some other folks to share the morning with.  If you want to come with us, leave a comment here (with contact info, of course) or send me a message (my email is in my profile).  At that point, we can exchange phone numbers and make plans for an exact meeting time and location.

(I love the honest, worn finish on this chair!)

Consider this your invitation ... would you like to come with us?

Antique shopping is always so much more fun with friends.

(All of the photos in this post were taken at the show in July 2011.  I'm sure there will be just as much great stuff to see at this show.)


  1. Oh would that I could!

    Maybe the July show?

    You are going to have such a good time. I'm slightly green.

  3. Us 2 wish it was closer, and less cold!!!!! Open Sale Day for Rose Petals Nursery this Saturday and Marion County Rose Society Board Meeting (me) along with the Central Florida Heritage Society meeting in Lakeland (Art)on Sunday, what would they think if we just cancelled everything and flew up there to spend the day with you? Bring us back a prize, Homer Laughlin prize! Have fun,

  8. DAMMIT!!! This always comes when I have company :( And I really want to do this one year.

  9. I'd be there in a heartbeat if if I was closer but like you I don't buy much anymore. I might be back there is July though...

  10. oooh, that weathered green highchair!!!....

  11. Oh, I'd love to come, but doubt I'll be able to make it! ;) My house, too, is full of furniture. But sneaking in little stuff can be just as much fun! Have a great time!
