What fun I had at the flea market today with my friend Johanna!
It was an absolutely gorgeous day -- all the flowering trees in full bloom.
I love a big table covered with junk (no jokes about my apartment, please). You never know what you'll find.
|That baby looks VERY familiar.|
Naturally, it was all I could do not to check out the vintage eyeglass frames, but I held strong. (Johanna's actually sporting a pair of Warby Parkers.)
We saw many sewing machines -- they show up more frequently in the warmer months for some reason.
This toy Brother actually takes batteries, though it also has a hand crank.
This Featherweight was $200 (accessories included) -- a very fair price but not the bargain of the century.
Here's a Singer 328, an early zigzagger that takes embroidery cams.
There were some more modern machines too. Not tempted at all. (Would you be?)
Among the other "collectibles" to be had: a vintage Motorola portable record player.
A groovy rotating nun music box that plays Schubert's Ave Maria.
A pair of fully-rooted mannequin heads.
A vintage lunch box overflowing with Sixties-era Barbie clothes.
And so much more!
Best of all, readers, is that I bought....nothing! (Correction: I picked up two CDs for $2 each: Baby Jane Dexter and Karen Akers -- almost nothing.)
I hope your weekend has been a pleasant one. We have a big week ahead, so get plenty of rest if you can.
Happy Sunday, everybody!
