another weekend, another flea market

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.)

    I knew you wouldn’t be able to pass up the printing set. Perhaps a new line of greeting cards will be coming soon?
