For this Flea, both buildings of the Dulles Expo Center were packed with vendors and their followers. The heady mix of furnishings and collectibles sent the throngs into a glorious Vintage Vertigo collective!
This was one of the best attended shows in recent memory. In typical form, The Lady D arrived before the doors opened. Even I managed to pull into the already crowded parking area within 20 minutes of the first addicts' entry into the cavernous South Building.
Once inside, I quickly located Diana as she perused a case full of vintage compacts. We then proceeded to flitter hither and yon, absorbing as much of the extravaganza as possible.

I think my overuse of exclamatories would make for a fine drinking game....May I suggest selecting your finest vino/beer/soda, and proceed as prescribed below:
- For every "WONDERFUL!" or "FABULOUS!" I mutter in the video, take one drink;
- For every "STUNNING!", take two drinks;
- "ICONIC!" earns you three drinks.
