You put a lot of effort into finding the right house, and now that your closing is just days away, you're finally ready to start calling your new place home. Before this can happen, however, you
Are these shoes ME or WHAT
Don't let ANYONE tell you that you have too many shoes, unless of course you have more than ME!
Again, this weekend while browsing around the Collingwood Auction and Flea Market in Farmingdale, NJ I found yet another pair of shoes (LIKE NEW) I just could not leave without. And for TWO BUCKS how could I possibly pass them by??
Well it's been years since I've been there and I've forgotten how crowded it can be. Parking can be sparse if you get there too late in the morning, but there were still folks pulling in at 2pm when I was exhausted and leaving. People are setting up at sunrise, so you can get there early and beat all the traffic on the roads. It's worth a ride to look for that special thing you're looking for. Just about everything can be found, and for a bargain.
There are plenty of places to grab a bite to eat, and while there you HAVE TO check out the pickle guy inside the main building. They are just as good as I remember from 30 years ago.
For a few bucks you can rent a table and pass on the stuff you'd just as soon throw in the trash, but it could be someone else's treasure!
You can walk for hours, up and down the aisles, some paved and some dirt. Lots of tables of "stuff" and some really good treasures. There are buildings to go inside if the chilly morning air is too much for you, but warm up and get back out to check all the rows of tables.
Seems as though most sellers were more than happy to quibble over a buck or two and thrilled to pass on their piles of clothes, shoes, coats, jewelry, holiday decorations, fresh farm produce and even the kitchen sink!
Lots of good stuff to go around, and with the great fall weather upon us, get out there and see NJ!
