I hear good things about this flea market but have never attended. If you haven't been to New Hope, you should go and bring the spouse/significant other. It's a really `quaint little shopping village'. Nice place to spend the day. They have all sorts of interesting shops you won't see elsewhere and good places to eat.
This Sunday, 5/5, is the Warminster Hamfest
This is my traditional first hamfest of the season. It's a great location, albeit a ride. Warning: the mere presence of a hamfest at this location on this day tends to produce rain. You never know which way it's going to go. But a great time is usually had by all.
For the uninitiated, a hamfest has nothing to do with ham, pigs or potato salad. It's a flea market for amateur radio and electronics nuts. You can also find a bit of stuff for computer people and musicians.
I have no financial interest in any of these places or events. It's just nice to get out of the house once or twice a year.
Funny story about New Hope
Last time there, we located an adult shop. I was having a fun time holding things up and saying, "Hey Honey, look at this!".
While walking to the next area, my wife asked me if I noticed that guy.
The guy in the adult shop.
You didn't see him looking at you?
He wanted you.
You really are oblivious, aren't you?
Completely. I don't notice women coming on to me.
Or men, apparently.
I stopped cold in my tracks and considered what she said. As we continued walking, I started looking around and really noticing. Uh-oh. I was apparently way more popular than I had ever thought possible (and I am not a good looking guy). I swore, at that moment, I would never objectify women again. I felt like a piece of meat.
As it turned out, New Hope is a rather gay place. While I am a huge supporter of gay rights, I do not participate.
