Flea Market Sunday

I haven't been to the flea market in a while but today went to the Long Beach Antique Market in Long Beach, California ( As usual, I saw lots of wonderful things (and even purchased a few).

Japanese Kokeshi dolls
A Cat in a Hat
Robot love
Wire chairs
Olive Oil
Chinese bobble heads
A Halloween figure - evil or just grumpy?
Sambo dart game with great graphics.
African fabric in shades of blue
Old dolls and heads (always slightly creepy)
A dapper Easter duck
A valentine basket with red glitter Christmas trees?
What looked like fabric turned out to be beads. Great to look at, hard to sit on.
A stack of vintage suitcases
Colorful Bakelite

I collect lots of stuff. Mid-century birds, vintage tins, and crocheted rocks to name a few. Sometimes the clutter drives me crazy. But I can't imagine empty walls and shelves. Each item is special for a different reason and anytime I need a little inspiration, I just have to turn my head and there is something to discover. I also collect things to display my collections - a peeling spice rack, old wood drawers turned sideways and hung on the wall, and vintage cutlery boxes are some of my favorites.

Hornsea birds and salt shaker (holding an old key) and a bakelite bird napkin ring
