Amusement II

 Outfit Details: Dress: Francesca's Collections (sale)// Scarf: From Grandmother // Cardi: UO (remixed here) // Shoes: UO

Several weeks back the Mr. and I headed off the beaten path just a bit to peruse a local pop up flea market.  Unfortunately we got there a tad too late and all the vendors had torn down however the grounds were still open, so this defunct amusement park where the flea market is held, was all ours to explore.  

Talk about eerie.  It was not hard to see this once lively little amusement park was just a skeleton of it's former self.  Decrepit spider web laced buildings, a carousel pavilion without a carousel inside of it, and a single wooden coaster left to stand in all it's overgrown tree engulfed glory.  

So there you have it - I may not have found any flea market treasures, but I sure found an old and rusty, and still quite charming little gem.

Have a beautiful Saturday darlings!

  11. Wow what a beautiful (and kind of depressing) location! I bet it was thriving and gorgeous at one time- filled with children's laughter an noises of screams and carnival rides.It's sad that more and more things front the past are disappearing each day for the growth of the world. It's crazy.
