Rummagers unite! The Arlington Flea Market opens its season tomorrow for the first of eight monthly events.
A NoVa tradition since 1986, the market takes up five floors worth of space in the I-66 garage in North Arlington next to Washington-Lee high school.
That’s four floors of saucers, necklaces, antique miniature spoons and other amazing crap.
Also known as The Civitan Flea Market, the event’s proceeds go to support the causes espoused by the Civitan Club of Arlington. So not only are you stocking up on obscure used goods and promoting recycling – you’re also benefiting volunteerism and helping people with developmental disabilities.

Another opportunity for me to buy random crap – fantastic!
This time around, the event that will be sucking me in is the D.C. Big Flea Market. The flea market will will run on Saturday and Sunday at the Dulles Exposition and Convention Center and will feature over 1100 unique booths.
The chance that I will come home with at least one porcelain nicknack seems likely. Which got me thinking. If you could buy anything at the D.C. Big Flea, what would your one purchase be?
political donkey and elephant
With political races gearing up for the November mid-term elections, why not have today’s Find Of The Day make a nod to the Dems and Repubs. These two 9.5″ tall Royal Haegar planters are in excellent shape, and according to flabbyrabbit, have no chips. Neither the donkey nor the elephant are rocking the red, white and blue, but are both a matching shade of cream with greenish brown accents. Don’t know how the party leaders feel about that, but I have a feeling the word “unpatriotic” would come to mind.
