Last week I mentioned that I would be traveling to Mentone, Al. and would probably visit the White Elephant antique store. Well, we never made it to the antique store. We did go to Mentone, and from there we ended up driving a few miles to a Collinsville, Al, a small community south of Mentone. Each Saturday they host an event called Trade Day. It is like a giant outdoor flea market. The brochure said that the event drew crowds of about 30,000 each week!
I did buy some jewelry for my flea market booth, and also found these bird feeders made of giant timber bamboo! I fell in love with them at first sight! The man that made them was selling them at great prices, and the more you bought the cheaper the price. He told us that people in the Philippines build homes out of this type of bamboo.
So, after buying several, I gave one to the hostess who invited us, am giving one to my daughter for her birthday, and will probably sell the others in my flea market booth.
This one was the one that I gave our hostess. Her home is right on the brow of the east side of Lookout mountain, and I think you can see what a fantastic view there is from her home!
So, tell me what your wonderful finds have been this week!
