If you're looking for something to do this weekend - this might be just the event for you. The Friendship Flea Market ends this weekend in Friendship, IN. The flea market runs twice a year for a week at a time. They have vendors that camp there and it's open from 9a-9p every day for 9 days!
Yes - they have giant logo-emblazened underpants hanging up at the flea market - cuz it's classy dammit!
They also have fair-like food tents/vendors with elephant ears, swirly potatoes, tenderloins and pineapple soft serve. Good stuff.
There were a lot of guns - A LOT OF GUNS. The front had a couple of really pretty mum booths - which are perfect right now. And then just the randomness of it all. We came home with dog treats, a sign about our home having a bad ass dog and an Indianapolis Colts car flag. Um ok?! Random.
It ranges from the type of things you see at Traders World (sunglasses, cleaning products, knives, tie-dye t-shirts) to garage sale to antique booths and everything in between. There are vendors from near and far - it's just this incredible mish mosh of everything under the sun. There's art, crafts, crap, sports memorabilia, hand-crafted toys, flowers, knick knacks, jewelry, food, clothing, and the list goes on and on - literally!
And then there's this. Read it. Admire it. Take it all in. Two words: Hillbilly Heaven.
Oh the dogs!!! The top was a 1/2 wolf dog - not kidding - half wolf! So beautiful. The sign guy had this adorable jack russell that just hung out on his table all day. He was making the signs as you wait. And then - the big handsome bulldog - Larry is now obsessed with these guys - that is until he saw the amount of slobber they produced. Adoption averted. There were just a ton of dogs - it was fun!
