Like many obsessed collectors, I prefer to take my Sunday morning religious services in the sunshine, snooping around a flea market for bargains. 

And, as it turns out, nothing feeds the soul more than the discovery of an unsuspected treasure.  So,  as you could expect, this coming Sunday I'll be in downtown Salt Lake City,  partaking of services at the season opening of the SL Urban Flea Market.  Here a couple of photos of the revival tents pitched at the markets 4th South location Last year.
