Pickin' in NJ - South Brunswick Flea Market deals beat the heat!
Let's face it...even for New Jersey, it's been a hot and muggy early summer! We don't usually get these temperatures paired with this humidity until after the Fourth of July!! However, the American Legion Lt. John Farnkopf Aux post 401's a flea market on Saturday was full of folks in good spirits, offering up wares which had the traffic rolling in.
There was something for everyone, from furniture to vintage clothing, to retro Americana, (vintage advertisement serving trays) which I wish I'd seen before they got snapped up!
Vendors stuck it out in their spots, and as the day continued, made friends with those who had areas in the shade, and moved their chairs.
From their website: Lieutenant John Farnkopf American Legion Post 401 was chartered on May 12, 1948, but organizers had signed and submitted the application a good two years before that. The post is named for Monmouth Junction native and Army Air Force World War II pilot John Farnkopf.
I had a great time, and met some terrific people, as usual. Many of the vendors are regulars at local as well as more distant venues, so I encourage everyone to support them by going to local organization flea markets. You won't be disappointed!
Don't forget to contact me with events, flea markets, or garage sales that you are planning so that I can include them in my Thursday/Friday posts.
Until next time...have a great week!
