My friend, Tabitha, told me that I needed to go to this antique flea market in Sparks, KS.  It is about 11/2 hour drive from my house and let me tell you...   it was well worth it.  I only went through about 1/4 of the entire show and ended up not only spending all of my cash, but I had to borrow $6 from Tabitha.    If I had more time this weekend, I would definitely go back!  I spent a total of $71.75 and this is what I bought and here is the breakdown.

Table: $30 (I just saw the exact same table in better condition at an antique store for $150)
Pyrex Bowls (set of 3): $17
Birdhouse: $14
Applesauce Maker: $10  (that metal/cone contraption..... my MIL has one almost identical that I have actually made apple sauce with!)
Hankie: $.75 (for Casey because she had to work and couldn't make it.)
Here is a detail of the table, which will be the nightstand on my husband's side of the bed when I refinish the top.
This is a detail of the table feet:

I have had my eye out for some of these retro Pyrex bowls for a while.  I am excited to find some in such a great color and for such a great price!!!!

I can't wait for next year's show!  Now I have to go to the bank to get money for the bead show this weekend...   it's the best one of the year :-)

I spent so much of my childhood with my grandparents in Sparks.

Did anyone tell you it's a bi-anual show? I believe the next one is on Labor Day weekend.
