Shopping at the Melrose Trading Post
We found row upon row of all kinds of fun treasures: jewelry, clothing, furniture, paintings, artwork, books, handmade goods, garden items and more. Items range from brand new to gently used to antique, something for every budget. There was even a food court! We had just come from brunch at Grub Restaurant so weren’t hungry. But I did score a beautiful framed watercolor painting of a field of sunflowers, priced at $15. The frame alone was worth more than $15! Before I could ask if it was mis-marked, I said I would buy it. My friends also scored a few treasures for previously mentioned college apartment. Even if you don’t spend a dime at the flea market, perusing the more than 250 vendor booths will give you endless hours of entertainment value for a mere $3.
