Owls and flea markets

I made an owl today. He's inspired and looks a lot like one I saw on etsy. He's about 14" tall, made from brown fine wale corduroy, eyes, nose and feet from wool felt and the stripes are Heather Ross. I think he looks very 70's. Like he should be riding in a VW bus or sitting on a avocado green couch in a wood paneled living room. *The other pillows are Room Seven.

Saturday I took part in the flea market held in the Patch gym. I came with lots of stuff to sell (baby stuff, maternity clothing and fabric) and came home with most of it.
I also come home with:
one baby Einstein excorsaucer for $5.00
one very large barbie airplane for $4.00
two big roaring dinosaurs for $4.00
two very nice car seats for $20
one rescue vehicle for $3.00
one rescue motorcycle for $2.00
two rescue hero men for $1.50
three puzzles for $2.50
I could barely fit it all in my car! I did sell some stuff and actually came home with more money than I left with. All the stuff I bought was from a seller right across from me. They had SO many toys I couldn't look away. I called the mom over several times and asked her to show me this or that because I couldn't leave my stall. One of the car seats was missing the 5 point harness and the mom said she'd bring it in to work on Tuesday. I really hope she does because I'm stupid and didn't get her name. I just trusted.

I really really like your owl! He seems very laid back to me. Yeah, I can see him in a VW bus!! What about harvest gold shag carpet under that couch????

Yard sales rock! At least you came home with more money than you left with..... the stuff you got is cool! I want to play too!

LOVE the owl! He's awesome! Corudory was an great choice. I'm glad I didn't bother with the flea market. I know I would have brought my stuff home cuz I wouldn't want to sell it that cheap! What great deals you got! And fun stuff!

The owl is supper cute. He reminds me of a hippy. It's too bad you didn't sell mucy, but at least you left with some good deals. Emily looks really happy with her new toys.
