Trader's World

This year we decided to shop Trader's World for our summer flowers.
The prices were right and the flowers were beautiful.
You do have to be there when they open to get selection - 9:00 AM.

I was able to get all the fillers for 99 cents each!

My huge fern - should have gotten 2!

I LOVE gerber daisies - this is beautiful and has about 6 or 7 blooms right now.

Trying to create a "garden" in the alley - I can hardly wait until the
flowers fill the pots. Looking at these photos I already have seen a change in just 1 1/2 weeks.

This salsa and chips are the absolute best!!! It beats Chipotle and I love theirs!!
This lady quit her main job to make and sell this -- she has from mild to hot/hot
and the chips are just the right crunch with the perfect amount of salt.
Building #3 -- Check it out!!

No trip is complete without a stop at the central location for food --
yummy funnel cakes, greasy chicken fingers and fries, cheese sticks, loaded potato wedges....
No, we do not eat all of that at each visit!!

Building #3 also has this huge area where they sell all kinds of jerky at a good price.
Dave bought 3 different kinds for the children to try out.
It disappeared into "the mouths of babes" very quickly!

It is "tradition" to buy a medium bag of hot, kettle cooked, popcorn at the
outdoor stand. This bag was so full you couldn't even shut it and it had just been made -- that's how they sell it to you --
Alicia didn't go but you can tell she is enjoying it.


If you haven't been to Trader's World - you have got to go - and take lots of cash.
It's so much fun to scout the outdoor yard sales and booths - you never know what you
might find. The fruits and veggies are usually a great buy too.
Just don't buy the "designer" purses - you might be buying a fake - we missed
the raid by about 1-2 hours! Oh well.
