I haven't been to the flea market for a few weeks due to christmas plus the cold weather. I cannot imagine vendors standing out there for 6-7 hours in the 40's or 50's. The last flea market I was at is the Thurs. morning one where I go to buy mainly fruits and vegetables and of course to look around. Well this day there was a young mother with a girl about 11 or 12 and I assume they had gone through their belongings and were just trying to get rid of things they didn't want. They had a pile of books so I stopped to have a look and a sign said 25 cents each. There was even a bible there. I picked up this journal and it was brand new. Probably a gift and never used. I asked is this only 25 and she said yes so I bought it.
It is very pretty and has 3 sections inside with photo inserts and an envelope in the front cover. I have been wanting to play around and gussy something up so I will try it with this one day. Would be a shame to spoil it. I took a pic of the front cover, the inside cover and the overpage. Will show it again when I do something with it.
