Road Trip: Connecticut

Because of the Springsteen concert, I spent last weekend in Connecticut. While Saturday was all about Bruce, Sunday was all about shopping. And what better place to shop than a flea market? This stop: The Elephant’s Trunk Country Flea Market in New Milford, CT.

First stop on my road trip......breakfast!!!

This is just one of at least 50 aisles for shoppers to walk down at the ET Flea.

My scores from the ET Flea:  an old gym locker for $20.00 and a blue floral sugar bowl for $3.00.  Add that to the $2.00 admission fee and all I spent at the sale was $25.00!!!  I love thrifty days like this!!!
