While the Mount Dora art festival was going on this weekend, we bypassed the mayhem and went to Renninger’s flea market. The place has always been a haven for antiquers and spendthrifts but it’s grown so much as Orlando has sprawled its way into the area. As a teenager, my cousins and I would shop for old comic books, used tapes, and whatever interesting nicknacks would catch our eyes. It really hasn’t changed since then too much… just a lot bigger.
We were this close to buying a duckling but instead bought a fern. I think when the foxes come back to den for spring, a duck in the backyard may not fare well.
Afterward, we split a strawberry shortcake a la mode at the Oak Haven Strawberry Farm. Lots of folks were out enjoying the warm weather and clear blue sky picking bushels of strawberries. It’s a great time to go out and pick if you have a chance.
Now, back to work and designing magazines. Have a lovely Monday everyone!
