Rummaging through files of old photos the other day, I came across little gems of fond memories from years ago. Trey, the hubs, and I used to be avid antique and vintage items hunters.
Maybe it was a phase because we sure haven't done that in a while. Currently, we're in a "purge it" phase. Want to come to our yard sale?
Anyway, I thought it'd be fun to post some old photos (blogged long ago) of one of our antique hunts in Arcadia, La., infamously known as the town where Bonny and Clyde were shot down in 1934 by police officers.
There is a monthly flea market, Bonny and Clyde Trade Days, that draws quite a weekend crowd. People actually travel from all over the place in their RV's and camp on grounds near the flea market.
The 1920s and 30s were, to me, such a fascinating period in American history. Just yesterday I went to see Public Enemies. Ah, the costumes, the music, the love story. Très romantique.
