Flea Markets: Weekend Bargain Hunting

If you are looking for a good bargain, there's nothing more pleasurable than spending part of the weekend wandering through the nearest farmers market, craft fair or flea market.  You can buy fresh fruits and vegetables, support local artists and if you are really, really lucky, you could be the one to discover a true treasure that's worth a few thousand dollars or that actually belongs in a museum!  I guess such finds is the dream of most flea market hunters.

Sandra and I love to visit flea markets. We have been lucky enough to find some wonderful chandeliers, a couple of arm chairs for our living room, some paintings and more.  We've never made that great discovery but we love the treasures we've found over the years.

Easter Crafting Projects for Kids from Better Homes and Garden

image Bottle-Cap Chick Napkin Rings Kids will love helping out with setting the Easter table — if it means they get to make these adorable napkin rings! To make, paint a bottle cap yellow and let dry. Use a black paint marker to add eyes and a small orange triangle of paper for the beak. Add a yellow feather to the back of the bottle cap, and glue the chick to a piece of wide ribbon about 4-1/2 inches long. Glue a second smaller ribbon to back to tie the napkin ring together.
