I have fantasized over and over about quitting my day job and becoming a swap meet seller. Heavens knows, I have enough stuff in my apartment to sell! My home town has a really amazing Wednesday swap meet (aka Flea Market for you East Coasters) at the fairgrounds which is literally situated right next to the beach. Since I'm part-time now at the day job, I requested Wednesdays as one of my days off. I'm actually getting a shot at Swap Meeting and I LOVE IT! I've been there two weeks already and will be going back tomorrow for my third time!
Here are some pics form my first week at the Swap Meet by the Sea.
I have a small flat bed trailer that I load up with goodies and tow with my old Dodge station wagon. I get a lot of people who just stop to talk to me about the old car and then end up buying something too. Heh heh!
How about this dapper fella? He was bought by a lady for her daughter who lives in Vegas. You never know what wild and weird stuff I'll bring to the swap!
I was too busy last week to take pics of that set up. My dad contributed a lot of merchandise to the booths as well because he is moving to a smaller house and has to downsize his sizable collections of movies, books and what-not. He is a collector too (I guess the apple didn't fall to far from the tree on that one!) I look forward to Wednesdays each week now and can't wait to get out there in the California sunshine and sweet ocean breeze to peddle my wares. If you live anywhere near Ventura and have a free Wednesday, stop in and say hi!
