Old People Selling Crap

Today we headed to a local flea market that was being held at the Expo Center in Waukesha (which is only a few minutes away from our place). We saw signs for it when we were out and about yesterday and decided to check it out today. I've been to the Woodland Hills swap meet in California a few times, but had never been to a flea market. It sounded like fun.

The main lesson learned today is that swap meets and flea markets are totally different things. A swap meet is a place where there are little shops selling random and somewhat cool and amazing things at really good prices. A flea market is a bunch of old people selling crap.

That's not to say it wasn't fun. It wasn't that big of an area and we looked at pretty much everything (and grabbed lunch) in the span of about an hour. There was some amazing crap being sold there. Stuff you'd find in your grandmother or great-grandmother's house. Everything from old costume jewelry, to bugs under glass, to old video tapes, old stuffies, Freddy Krueger dolls, books from decades ago, etc. While it was fun to look around at the random stuff people were selling it really was a gathering of old people selling crap. Kind of like a really giagantic garage sale. Lunch was actually really decent.

After the flea market we drove around for a bit and looked at houses. We picked up a few fliers from houses that are for sale and are very happy that down the road when we're both working we really have a chance at affording our own house. That never would have happened in Los Angeles. Oh, and we might have found a way to get Berek and Pita to move out here. C'mon guys... there's a house division called The Shire and the entrance road is Rivendell Drive. You know you want to! *winks*

After driving around we made a stop at the store (Rob ran in for milk, hot dogs, and buns while I stayed in the car with the baby), got a drink to bring home from Starbucks, and headed home.

Tonight we did some stuff online, watched The Amazing Race, bathed the baby (his first bubble bath), watched The Apprentice, and got all of the adult clothing laundry done.
