Schoolhouse Flea Market

Pack Rats Thrift Store is housed in an old 3-story schoolhouse. I only had about 20 minutes so I didn't get to go through all the rooms! The place just recently opened but it looked like an army of elephants had already rummaged through it!

Each classroom held a different category. This room was housewares.

Look at this linen section. I'd need 20min just to look through this section alone.
Women's clothing. Check out those sunshiney windows. I couldn't help thinking about what it might have been like to be a student here long ago.


Some rooms still had their chalkboards and handwriting cards still up!

I wasn't here long enough to find any treasures but I intend to go back soon. I'll be sure to post more pics.

When you go back, could you grab that huge strawberry in pic #2, and the striped tablecloth in #3, and that little white wicker chair in #4 for me?!! Wow, that store looks like it's packed to the gills with treasures! You might need to devote a whole day to it. Sounds fun to me!
