Yesterday morning I drive over with my wife to the Turkeyville 4th of July weekend Flea Market. It is annual 3 day flea market that is usually pretty interesting. It has been a few years since I stopped by one, and this one is usually one of the better ones to go check out. It is located at 'Cornwell's Turkeyville' in Marshall, Michigan between Battle Creek and Marshall.
It is always fun to go walkthrough a flea market now and then. You always find some incredible deals, but also you find a lot of junk. However, I guess there is always something for everyone.
The Turkeyville Flea Market on 4th of July weekend is a pretty large one, and when talking to vendors, it is one that some of them put on their list as a premiun one to go to.
My wife and I did not really have any acquisition in mind when we went there, but she did inform me that I needed to bring cash and my checkbook. So, that being the clue, I knew were were probably going to be bringing something home. We ended up finding an incredible deal on a mahogany chest and a rocking chair that we got for a steal of a deal.
Here is my Sunday Challenge game: Rather than tell you what I paid for them, I thought it would be fun to see what the AR community thinks they are worth. We bought them both together from the same dealer. Look at the chest and chair and tell me what you think they are worth. I am curious to know the feedback.
I will reveal the answer in a few days. Good luck!
Here are the photos of the chest and rocking chair. The chest has an inlay of cedar, and the original advertising from the manufacturer on the inside cover. It also has an inlay pattern on the front, and it is in near perfect condition. The seller had misplaced the key, and thus you see a little piece of paper sticking out from under the lid so it does not close and lock. He is going to look for it and mail it to me.
The rocking chair is a solid hardwood stained a dark mahogany color. Looking at the grain, it appears to me that is may also be made of Mahogany, or perhaps Maple.
