Yep. That explains it. Now, if you want, you can go online and shop for that unique antique/boutique item but it is just not the same as holding it in your hands and knowing that some discerning aficionado from the past has had a connection to the item. As a flea market enthusiast, I cannot help myself. Ozark Country Flea Market in Waynesville is a place where I can get completely lost in the past. Booth after booth of just a bit of everything calling my name and before you know it, I have spent a couple of hours reminiscing, recollecting, reflecting, ruminating and rummaging, finding those items that I simply can no longer live without. If you haven’t tried it, please do. So much better than pills and poultices for calming the nerves and lifting the spirit. But I must warn you, it, too, is addictive. Ozark Country Flea Market, 107 Rte. 66 E., Waynesville.
