A Trip to Elkhorn

Although the weather was dreary, there was still plenty to see and buy at the Elkhorn Flea Market located in Elkhorn, Wisconsin.  This market is held four times a year.  The remaining dates are June 26th, August 14th and September 25th.   If you happen to be in Wisconsin, make it a point to stop and shop - you won't be disappointed.  Be sure to check out the following vendors: Anything Goes Here, Gracie's Cottage and Altered Ever After.  They have great displays and wonderful merchandise.

Just a sampling of the vintage goods you can find at Elkhorn.

We will be posting some of our finds in our Etsy shop in the next week.  Check it out...
