The Tulsa Flea Market and The Tulsa Yard Sale

My friend, Butch, took me to Muskogee to go through some antique stores and flea markets while I was in Tulsa.  Then, I stayed over in Tulsa to go to the Tulsa Flea Market and the big Tulsa Yard Sale. The flea market is the usual one I go to on the big fair grounds. But, the Yard Sale is sponsored by the newspaper and has 200 vendors and booths. I got more goodies there. It was worth the day walking in all those buildings and across the lots.  I got things to add to my collections, Christmas presents and Easter presents. I got some of my Viking red glassware. I paid $60 for 6 glasses and the pitcher. The pitcher is worth 3 to 4 times that. Great find. One of the neat things was I found two boxed sets of Fostoria napkin rings of the Americana pattern at the yard sale. Then I went down to a dealer at the flea market. He had lots of Fostoria. I asked him did he have any napkin rings and that I needed 4 more. He said he wished he did. He asked me how much I paid and I told him $20 for the 8 in the boxes. He asked did I know what they were worth? I told him to me $20. He laughed and said he wished he had found them first. They sale them on eBay for $135.00 for four in the original box. I had a lot of fun there.
