MIL and I drove to Sumpter on Saturday to shop at the flea market. It’s held three times a year – Memorial Day, Independance Day, and Labor Day. It was MIL’s first time driving in a convertible, and the weather was perfect!

We arrived first thing in the morning, so as not to have to deal with as many people. We knew exactly what we were looking for, and were on a mission. MIL wanted to find an alpaca sweater, similar to one I had bought here a year ago. I wanted to buy homemade jalapeno and habanero jams that we had bought previously. They are SO good on anything you put on the grill. Sticky, spicy, and sweet.
These turkey legs were gigantic. Watching someone eat one was hysterical!
Sumpter is a very small town with dirt and gravel roads. It tends to get very dusty.
This guy had to have gotten this from working airport security, wouldn’t you think? A box of random cuticle scissors…
I loved these signs. I’ll bet I could make some great ones for the pizzeria with homemade slogans….
I wish I could’ve gotten a photo of JD. Okay, just imagine what he looks like. A guy that owns GOLD BY THE INCH obviously wears chains. Lots and lots of chains.
A pig grill unto which you can cook your pig. And it’s pink. What every carnivore needs.
Look at how cute this couple is, and how huge their dogs are. How many dogs can you see? Two?
We saw everything there was to see in about an hour, bought the alpaca sweater and the habanero jellies, and cruised home in 70 degree weather. It’s a beautiful 25 mile drive from Baker City, and we’ll probably do it again for the next flea market. MIL now wishes she had bought two sweaters – at least we know they’ll be back.
