Sunday was the perfect day to wander the Elephant's Trunk Flea in New Milford , CT.
The trees were in full Autumn spectacular mode and the weather couldn't have been nicer.
There were tonss of vendors this week.
And of those PBS/HGTV/DIY network shows were there filming. I still don't know which one (I don't watch so I didn't recognize the people) but I will say that the hosts were kind of pushy and rude when they wanted to get by you but the camera people were very good at apologizing for them.
I bought one of the $5 mums shown above. It is gorgeous.
And who doesn't love a place where you can get mini donuts AND clam chowder. I'm having a bit of a love affair with Connecticut these days.
So what did I buy?
I'm loving this ram planter I snagged. I've been wanting to dig a few of the plants out of the garden to bring in doors. These are habanero peppers. Sorry it is so dark. I didn't think to take a picture until the early evening.
This hand made wool felt kitty was my favorite fnd. I just love her!
The details are great, especially these vintage millinery flowers on her ear.
Another dog portrait for my new collection. One more and I think I'll have enough to get them up on the wall. I also found something that will be a gift so no pictures until after the holidays and a cute hand made vintage ornament that is impossible to photograph well. It is a bottle brush tree inside a cloche and was an adorable $1 find.
We are thinking of heading back up on Sunday depending on the path of Frankenstorm. Sigh . . .
What did you find this week?
