Today at the Seekonk (MA) Speedway Flea Market: things were purchased, coffee was swallered.
Metal numbers, a dollar each! There were bigger #s available, but I had to think rationally: where will these things fit? Shown here in my studio, they won't stay where they are in this photo.
Other junk (kid's riding toy, wall clock) resides there currently.
You know what they say:
"A piece of junk for every space, and a space for every piece of junk."
These numbers are now sitting in front of my heater cover, which is one foot to the right of that little red chair. Figure they'll conduct heat, won't they? And if they don't, they'll get moved. It's Just. That. Simple.
Porcelain lobster claw, 50 cents. The guy wanted a dollar. I talked him down because I am a Mighty Negotiator. Or: I didn't feel like breaking my 20. You decide.
All I could think of when I saw this claw was, "I wonder what my lobsters will make of THIS?!?"
So, here above is what they thought.
Their smiles are brave fronts; masks for what's truly going on deep within them: fear & trembling.
Today's total: $4.50.
