Flea Market Adventure

We were looking for something new and different to do with the kids last weekend and stumbled across the idea to go to the Mile High Flea Market.  I grew up seeing commercials for it on TV and hear random mentions of it all the time, but have never been.  So off we went!

We took a pit stop at Krispy Kreme on the way.  Glazed donuts.  'nuff said.




I've decided that the Mile High Flea Market is definitely the ultimate destination if you're in the market for tight, blingy jeans, or for toy guns, or for shoes and purses.  Those were the things I kept seeing over and over again.  (And lingerie!!!  Who buys lingerie at a flea market?!)




But there were also other treasures too...



And there was a whole section filled with fresh fruit and veggies.  I'd just spent a rockin' night at the grocery store the night before (seriously - goodbye Muzak, hello Axl Rose and Ozzy Osbourne on the overhead speakers), so we were all set on our produce, but it sure was pretty!



Just when the kids were majorly let down when had to break it to them that there weren't actually fleas there (I think they were thinking flea circus), we walked down the row with the carnival rides, and all was well with the world.



We tried to tell them this is just like the Carsland ride at Disneyland...



I thought it was tons of fun.  It was a great place for people watching, there were great snacks for sale at every turn (churros, funnel cakes, kettle corn - quality!), and there really were great treasures tucked away everywhere you looked.  We got a few super cute headbands for the girls for cheap!  

I want to go back!  Who wants to come with me?

  1. I love flea markets, however the ones we attend all through out the summer are no where near as big as this one. I would sign up to be your flea market friend if we lived closer. HA. Just kidding, it does look like a fun place to attend and much bigger than the ones my husband and I go to all summer. I will say that they are very much the same though. There are so many things that I would never buy but they are there every week so I guess somebody must buy their stuff. HA. Even though the stuff always seems to be the same we can not help but going back all summer so we don't miss out.
