I love the paper junk. The matchbook covers were a great find. Perfect for my daily tiles. Keep a look out.
Real wooden checkers in their original box and a tin top.
Glass (emulsion?) photo plates. Gorgeous -- anyone know how to reproduce the images?
Probably not dishwasher safe, but my Gram had a set like this so I had to have them. I love the ice cream bowls especially, but with these colors sherbet would be prettier. And I got the whole set for $20!
I'm calling these three the Andrews Sisters. Their dad was from Greece -- like my dad and someone else's dad, too.
Marie Antoinette with her head still attached.
Is it me or does she look worried?
Took the rest of these at the market -
A suitcase of valentines.
I touched them completely by accident trying to get this shot, so appreciate it! Ach! No, I didn't buy any, but some darker assemblage artist would surely put them to good use.
A long shot of my favorite vendor's space.
I always feel like I want to boil myself after digging through all this musty junk, but it's totally worth it. Just make sure that you're up to date on your immunizations and are not squeamish about handling things that have been in dead people's mouths.
Bobby the Junkman.
Till next month.
I'm going to go play with my new goodies.
