I have a couple of nieces that go to lots of auctions, flea markets and garage sales. When I was looking for a Tupperware ice breaker and lettuce keeper (the old model) I told them to keep an eye out. Sure enough, within a few months they had found both items!
With nice weather right around the corner (you hear that Old Man Winter?) there will be lots of places to find treasures and things you didn’t know you needed.
One of my favorite places to ”shop”:
June 7 & 8 Best of all: Woodruff Place Flea Market http://www.woodruffplace.org/
And you’ll find anything, I mean anything here: Croy Creek Traders Fair. It is located in Reelsville, IN which is about 30 minutes west of Indianapolis, opens April 19 and runs thru Nov.

Don’t forget the craft fairs either. There’s lots of creative people out there that can take old dishes or a 2-liter bottle and make a bird feeder. Although at the recent Indiana Artisan Fair, DIL2 and I only came back with edible items: noodles, wine, popcorn, jam, wine, hand dipped chocolate, wine, cheese spread, wine . . . . you get the picture!
