Monday, LABOR DAY, September 3 – We went looking for bargains this morning at the Hartville Flea Market.

This is one of their busiest days of the year, so he picked up Marsha's brother and sister-in-law, Rick and Chris, at 7:30 am so we could beat the crowds.

Well we almost beat the crowds.

We had a ton of rain the past two days. Looks like someone has a sense of humor.

Established in 1939, the Hartville Flea Market (re-named the Hartville Market Place) has grown into a year-around shopping experience that you have to see to believe. The two-story facility combines the best of days gone by with all the amenities of a modern shopping center. It is air-conditioned and heated for year-around comfort. Among the more than 100 permanent dealers you can find anything from fresh meat, cheese and produce, home d├ęcor, clothing & accessories, jewelry, and much more.

The outdoor Flea Market is a 12-acre bargain hunters' paradise. Enjoy shopping under two covered pavilions that can hold 200 vendors or stroll on the smooth blacktop area, which can hold and additional 800 vendors.

The fruits and vegetables were delicious looking.

We bought these HUGE red peppers. DE-LIC-IOUS!peppers

It seemed everyone was carrying some sort of flower.

No, Paul, we don't need a 100 lb. bag of potatoes.

The Market is open all year on Monday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. The three summer holidays are the busiest time to shop.

Need any scissors?

What about FIVE bras for $10? Now that is a deal, but we weren't buying.

These are the fanciest toilet bowl brush holders we have ever laid our eyes on.

Guess this guy is celebrating Halloween a bit early.

We made several purchases each. Again, just trying to help out the local economy.

Sign for the day.

Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see y'all back real soon. Have a great day.
