Roadtrip to Bouckville!

We went on a weekend adventure/road trip to Upstate New York to the coolest flea market called The Madison Bouckville Show! It was one of the hottest days of the summer at a sweltering 40 degrees Celsius (aka 104 degrees Fahrenheit!!!!) and there were thousands and thousands of flea market vendors! We didn't expect the flea market to be so big, packed with vendors and with so many treasures. It was really fabulous because they put up these huge striped carnival tents for shade. Danielle, our amazing friend came on the trip and we had a blast walking around for hours and hours finding the coolest things! We totally fell in love with the 100 year old grain sacks (that we turned into pillows for the bed), Navajo jewelry, got an old tin knight and a few quirky hats.  Bouckville, New York is one of the most beautiful flea markets around. The scenery is crazy beautiful with the most perfect rolling hills and cornfields. It was a fabulous road trip and Bouckville's name is now turned to "BECKY-ville" because we were in TOTAL flea market heaven and will be back next year!
