The Flea.


During the summer months our flea market known as The Flea is an outdoor market. In the winter months you will find it indoors at one of the railyard buildings. You sure can't miss this sign if you were looking for the market.

Love signs that tell you exactly what you need to know!
And if they're big and bright...all the better:))
Would love to visit The Flea.

Randy,
The Flea market looks cool in the winter with all those snows like that...

I love flea markets! We have a "brocante" here in town where I buy pewter for pennies...and it always makes my table so homey and cozy!

Nice photo with the lines of snow, but that sign is quite catchy... one is used to seeing "flea market" but The Flea is just perfect!

The flea market indoors is really eclectic. Years ago I used to stay in Taos for part of a summer and helped my artist friend sell her work at the outdoor flea market near the Opera House. If I dig up some old photos, I'll scan them and send them to you!!

I bet it's a really cool market, too. (No Dogs Allowed?)

Excellent! Love your composition here. BTW, yes, it was really cold at the beach but nice.

Cool. A railyard seems like such a perfect location for a flea market. The snow on the tracks looks great too.

I love the colors!
So funny the snow we had is all gone..

Nice capture! Nothing like a good flea (unless you're a dog).

They're bold! Summer or winter, the market is there!
God bless you!

I used to think they sold fleas at flea markets!

I like flea markets sometimes if they include stuff other than new junk made in China! Do you go to this one?

JM said...

It's a very cool sign and great composition with wonderful contrasting colours.

I love all of the colors in this shot! I haven't been to a flea market in quite some time. This makes me want to go. =)

This is a great sign. Gave me a bit of a chuckle.

You know, I've been to the Flea Mkt in Tesuque, but I did not know they had one here! I learned something new today and will have to check it out!
