Cincinnati Flea - American Can Factory Edition

Trailer Queens, David Hayes, 2011 (Instagram)

This past Saturday, we ventured forth to "Northside" ....a neighborhood of Cincinnati that we normally don't go to...too far removed from where we live. It takes something special to get us to go places outside our norm...and this was it! The Cincinnati Flea was having a special edition at the newly renovated American Can Factory...so we had to go!!

Saturday was a beautiful fall day.....sunny with clear, crisp air....and we arrived just at opening so had no problems with parking. It didn't take long for the venue to fill and soon the whole place was vibrating with positive energy from everyone there. We had a chance to talk with old friends while visiting all the vendor spaces...and I even ran into a former teaching colleague and student!! 

We ended up not buying much...just a few trinkets and some "designer cupcakes" for dessert that night. I did take lots of pictures with my iPhone and Nikon...but the ones from my Nikon were all blurring! It looks like I had forgotten to change a setting, so the auto-focus was screwed up!! In any case, here are some pics taken using either the Hipstamatic or Instagram app. Can you tell the difference???











All in all, it was a great way to spend the morning! While I liked Cincinnati Flea's downtown location, I must admit that I enjoyed this venue a great deal...and hope they return here sometime!!

Just a reminder....my online collaborative project, "Dave's Apps Recipe Book" is this coming Sunday, October 30th. I hope you're planning to join in!! For details about this great opportunity to show and tell, click here!
