Rodeo, New Mexico
February 13, 2004
For instance, this year we found one of those cool scooters you see all the kids riding on at a most reasonable price. We also bought some tiny binoculars that are very sharp and fold together to fit in a small pouch, for under $10. This year we were looking for another solar panel for our motor home, and a solar oven; we found both without any trouble. And it wasn’t even peak season yet!
The unusual prevails here; one large "booth" contains mostly antlers of all kinds. I found some pewter dragons last year to give to my son at a booth that had the largest collection of pewter objects I’ve ever seen. We like to stop at one place along the main street just west of the main intersection that has lots of large yard art. My favorites are the knights. My husband enjoyed finding a likeness of John Wayne astride his horse. We always wonder who buys these things!
