a-hunting we will go

 
This guy made me delicious gourmet mini donuts from scratch. Love him.
 
 
Admiring my donuts.
 
Victor was all about this vintage coat.
 
Winner of the creepiest flea market vignette.
 
And the Cutest Couple Ever award goes to...

I am definitely in my element when I'm pawing through racks and racks of old clothes, or squatting down to examine tangled piles of jewelry. Flea markets make me happier than almost anything else. These photos are from the Candlestick flea market, which is relatively new and quite amazing. I happily wandered around, popping mini cinnamon donuts into my mouth, gaping at all the treasures, and haggling with cute old ladies. And I walked away with my giant tote bag filled to the brim with pretty things. I'm so curious to know what the amazing twosome in the last photo bought... they were killing me with their matching festive attire.

Oh wow! can't wait to seee what you picked up! Adore the photos and this is exactly what I feel like doing today (wish we had flea markets like this here) Ha! That last couple are the cutest. I always love it when older couples match. I always wonder weather they did iton purpose or not :D

Lol - that's so awesome. Matching couple. Imagine that, being together so long you start dressing as one person, haha.
These markets look good. I must check out the market scene again, there might be different things that attact me now since I'm not 11 anymore :P
