Wow, Thanks for the list of events in my area! I had no idea about the Flea Markets in Orange and Tustin and I live in Orange and worked in Old Town Tustin until just recently. I will be checking out all the opportunities...especially the ATC swap, that sounds like a lot of fun!
Christmas Blessings to you!

Wow, you're just a wealth of information Sherry - thank you! I'm going to check out the one in Jersey and see if we can swing that since Calis just a little too far. ;-)
I hope you enjoy a wonderful holiday season!
