After waking up early this morning around 6 AM, doing some work in the office, getting a shower, and getting ready… it was on the road! We stopped at one of our local Sheetz gas stations, got some gas and some coffee/food, etc.. Afterwards I hit the Post Office, the bank, then was finally, actually, on my way!
A short two hours or so later we arrived in Middletown, Pennsylvania and it’s “Saturday’s Market,” a local Flea Market/Farmer’s Market/little-bit-of-everything stop. It was really cool there. I was able to get some cool pieces which I am more than sure I can turn a profit on. There were a lot of people there, and next time I will try to get there earlier in the morning (on Saturday they run 4 AM until 4 PM, we got there around 10:30 or so). Nonetheless I found some great finds! I will post a video in a few days on OUnitProductions.com talking about/showing them.
After scoring some hot-ticket items and getting some great information/pricing ideas, etc.. it was off to Dover, Pennsylvania and their Newberrytown Peddler’s Market. It wasn’t as good as the first, with many less vendors, and items in general. I was able to find a few things, and we had an AMAZING lunch at this place called “Vicki’s Place.” Their selling slogan is “Home of the Baldhiller Hot Dog,” and let me tell you, this thing was AMAZING. A hotdog with BBQ sauce, pulled pork, and onions. Delicious! My girlfriend got a steak sandwich, which she said was also pretty good. Great little find!
After the great lunch and looking around a little bit more trying to find some diamonds in the rough, it was off to our hotel, which is pretty amazing. It’s the Country Inn & Suites here in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, which I am writing this from right now. They have, what looks to be, a great breakfast, pretty amazing rooms, an indoor pool & hot tub, and some other cool features. After posting this we might be going down to take a swim actually before it closes for the night.
To end the night, OF COURSE, we hit HERSHEYPARK IN THE DARK! Had an awesome time there, ate some good food, played some games, and explored their “Creatures of the Night” event at ZooAmerica. We’ll be heading back tomorrow to have some more fun!
Awesome day so far! Ready for an awesome night, then getting up around 7 AM for the hotel’s breakfast. Afterwards I’m looking to go out picking at another flea market or possibly some yard sales. We shall see, I plan on doing some research later this evening. Then tomorrow afternoon it’s back to HERSHEYPARK IN THE DARK! STAY TUNED FOR MORE UPDATES!
