Flea Market - Food and People


 These are very tempting but I know my stomach will rebel making me miserable for hours later.
 But I am always open for a hot dog.  It's just that at 9 in the morning, a hot dog doesn't sound right.

Kettle Corn.  There's another potential gut-ache to avoid.

Whose feet are these?

 A little shopper.  Cute as she has her purse with her, ready to make a purchase.  
I should have looked to see what had caught her eye here.

And then there was this lady.  Halloween was a week away yet she looked dressed like a dance hall queen from the wild west era.  Veiled hat, wig, velvet coat and outfit, red lacy undergarment, lace-up high top boots and with a 6 inch cleavage completing the ensemble.  Our paths crossed a couple of times.  It was like coming upon a horrible traffic accident; you don't want to look but you do.  I don't want to be seeing this at this hour on a Sunday morning.  Or any day at any hour for that matter.

  1. She probably had dressed with the clothes she had just found at the market. She is funny I think, is it a wig she is wearing?

  5. I like markets like this - I may have been tempted by the first stall, but my jeans would have rebelled later!
