David grew up taking trips with his family once a month up to Avon, and the treasures that were found was liken to finding buried treasure. A kid walking around with spending money and a whole morning to find the best goodies, heck even I, as an adult felt like a kid when David introduced me to the Avon Flea Market. For us, during college breaks and post-college, Avon became an adventure, looking for the most nostalgic item. The flea market is opened from about 6:00 am to at least 3:00 pm, but by one the vendours have started to pack up. This mean you must get there early, so a typical Avon day means waking up early, stopping for gas/and coffee, and driving 90 minutes (from Corning, NY), also included was a breakfast stop in Dansville, NY.
Yesterday yielded a nice, if smaller booty. Money being what it is. David's current trend for added to his public domain cartoons found him adding to his collection; while I found the whole set of Garfield coffee mugs from 1980's McDonald's (see picture below, mine are in need of a good scrubbing before I can take a good picture) and these awesome key chains: Figment the Dragon, Niagara Falls, and African Lion Safaaaaaaaaaaariiiiiiiiiiiiiii. I could have walked away with more, but my pocketbook could only get me so much. What I didn't get at Avon, I did find at the super fantastic, mega neat Buzzo Music Shop in Geneseo, NY. I found three new (to me) Dady Brothers' Albums.
