Big Flea

A fun day shopping with Eddie Ross and Jaithan at the Dulles Expo Big DC Flea.
Check in with Jaithan, organizer extraordinaire.
A stop to learn about glass from an expert dealer.
Jasperware in this booth.
Ivory handled knives and forks were a good buy.
 Linens and their care.
Blue flow ware
More dishes to pull a colors from for a festive table. 
 Blue plates in different patterns to collect.
I recently got this group of plates from a thrift store.  Five dinner, bread & butter, salads $30 for everyday use. 
I already have some nice soup dishes from a December estate sale.
Prints and framing tips.
Fabulous silver dealer.
This dealer had a mix of things, but Eddie focused on the copper.

 I had stopped here before the tour and loved these two matching watercolor portraits
 He was particularly nice.
They also had amazing samplers.  Tiny, fine stitches, imaginative design...this one had a duck pond and the child's animals around the house.  She was eleven!  One had the ten commandments rendered in verse.  One was by a six year old!  Can you imagine?
At the end of the day, a fine time had with friends.
If you get a chance take an "Eddie Tour" for an education.  He'll be at the  Scott Antique Market, Atlanta  GA next week.


  1. What a great recap of the day! We loved getting a chance to see (and shop!) with you again. Thank you, as always, Pat, for supporting us. See you soon, we hope!

  2. Oh wow, I hope I get to this next year. Looks like you had a great time and I enjoyed all the fun photos.


I love hearing from you. Don't be shy!
