Today was a beautiful Fall day in North Carolina, so of course we packed up the kids and headed to the Raleigh State Fairgrounds for the Flea Market. It’s my favourite weekend hangout. Does that make me old? I guess I am.
We did our usual trick to occupy the boys and gave them each $1.00 to buy a little toy. And while they were occupied with their treasure hunt I was on the hunt for a soda crate.
And I found one for $25. You can find these at any flea market, antique markets, or even Craig’s List now, as soda crates are the new hot item. This one is actually too perfect looking for my taste but I had my heart set on a yellow Pepsi crate. You know, since I have a little thing for all things yellow and since Pepsi is a North Carolina product, I had to have one. There were a ton of super cool really aged Coke crates at the flea market too.
One problem. I set it on my kitchen table for 3 seconds and pulled it off and left a giant scratch. Uh oh. Now if I did that much damage, my boys could do some serious, like tear the whole house down kind of damage.
