As the weather cools (yes, it's finally getting below the sweltering temperatures here in Florida) it's the perfect time to head out to the flea markets. How I love to sift through all of the wonderful little trinkets and treasures of times gone by. Some of the odds and ends aren't extremely old, but interesting in that they may remind us of our own past (and sometimes unusual) collections. If these treasures could only speak, we would know the story behind how these bits and pieces of people's lives ended up here on the many shelves and booths of this dusty market.
It's a great place to visit for inspiration and a nice inexpensive way to spend the day out and about.
to use them to create something new and wonderful...maybe in a piece of collage or altered art?
perfect condition and for a mere cost of only $2.00???? I have had this fascination with birds lately so
this will be a perfect addition to my collection. On to the next booth! What will I find?
joining my collection. Anyone collect cats? Only seventy-five cents for the three on the shelf. The bird is safe for now....MEOW. Hmmm, let's see what's around the corner.
Nope, don't need the Budweiser sign.
Maybe the hat belonged to Jackie O?
This is a little creepy...escaped from one of the Chucky movies?
he's been all this time! He's tall, huh?
Now wouldn't it be cool to have this? I could be the back seat driver (why bother peddling?)
What's a flea market without knock-off Coach purses? As a designer, this puts a burr in my saddle.
Where are the copyright police? Hello? HELLO? This is a crime!
Your guess is as good as mine?&*)(*! What a bargain, only a DOLLAR!
The produce section - usually great prices compared to the grocery stores, but the spotted pears look somewhat weird.
Time to call it a day.
Fun day at the market.... $0.00
Additons to my collection....$2.25 for birds.
$3.00 for a diet coke and a soft pretzel.
