A Visit To Colony Point Part 3: The Flea Market Excavation

Perhaps my favorite outing (aside from hanging with the old gals at the pool) was the trip I took with my mother and two of her “snowbird” friends to the bi-annual flea market at the local senior center.

One thing I loved about this flea market was its almost entirely contextual nature. What I mean by that is that most if not all of the vendors were selling items they either collected or created: pre-owned gems or labors of love who’s stories most definitely have more value than their asking price. Whether it’s hand knit baby clothes by Doris, a table full of salt-shaker angels inspired by one women’s circle of special friends or boxes full of trend-relics – there is magic on these here tables that make each worth more than you bargain for.

Here is some photo capture of my walk through memory-lane:

Being a popular kid isn't easy,you have to be cautious about every move of yours because you know that all eyes are on you.Not just the eyes that look up to you but also the eyes that love to see you in pain.You might have your own list of followers but with this list there exists the "popularity starved crowd" who wants to replace you.But when reality bites these morons and they're back to square one,hurt and angry with themselves they try to make you the victim of their moment of high adrenaline,just to make you suffer because you're better.They try to clean their head by ruining your perfect life.What's more is right then you realize that none of your "friends" are what they appear to be.You're broken,depressed .You feel the need to talk to someone of your own kind,someone who won't judge you and that's when you can find me at thepopularitébug,I promise to do anything and everything to help you out of your problem!Amen.
