This Week from Lisa Congdon: Collector's View

DSC_0012

Today I went to one of my favorite places: the flea market. I happened to go to the Alameda Flea Market, which happens here in the San Francisco Bay Area where I live the first Sunday of every month. But really I could have been in any of the millions of amazing flea markets or antique malls all over my continent (and I am sure all over the world). I love old stuff . I love places like this more than words can say.

Incidentally, I didn't buy anything I took photos of today (though I did buy a few other things!), but here are some of the scenes that caught my eye for some reason or another.

Enjoy.

These are great finds! I went to the flea market, too, looking for great old things for an animation I'm working on :)

I haven't been to the Alameda Flea Market in a while. I can't really go unless I have a little spending cash. Too tempting!

We went yesterday, too. The funniest thing I saw was when we got there, a woman carrying off that very same stag's head you have pictured here
