I thought I’d give the Sacramento Flea Market a try this weekend. It’s close to town, only happens once a month, and came recommended by my studio mate, Dane (if you’ve been to the studio, you’ve seen Dane’s talent for curating all things interesting and vintage). I still don’t quite have the knack for balancing my daypack, coffee, camera and purchases…and I still don’t like the idea of bargaining..and I am not all that great at spying the treasures through the crap. But I did buy some lovely (new) French dishtowels, and a fantastic 1960’s children’s printing set. I had a charming conversation with a retired letterpress printer who let me look through some of his not-for-sale books while we both mourned the lost art and industry of printing. Do I get applause for skipping the velvet Elvis? (Believe it or not, Steve has a book of famous velvet Elvis paintings.)
It’s all personalI'm Kim and I have a few blogs (and perhaps an issue with over sharing, and too much time on my hands). My other two projects are www.fiftyfiftyvision.com and www.thisisplanbe.com. I also tweet at https://twitter.com/TheKimTackett and instagram at http://instagram.com/kimtackett. But here, it's all personal. I show up once a week, sometimes less, never more. I don't have a niche or a purpose or a plan. Just a few stories and pictures. Welcome to my personal space.
