A Day at the Antique Market

Yesterday Nina and I went to the Randolph Street Antiques Market, it was the last one of the year.

These rolling pins made me think about Kelli Perkins.

The joy of paint by number…

When I was little I remember there was one of these Magic Brain Calculators at my grandmothers house. I thought it was so cool, using that little metal pic to pull down the numbers in the rows, I don’t think I ever understood how to really work it though, lol.

This is a Time O Graph, do you think they had time travel back when this machine was made?

I loved the story lines and illustrations on these Coronet magazines.

With fall upon us and the recent cooler temps outside, furs were everywhere.

Doesn’t everyone need a possum in a box? By the way, for you Australians and New Zealanders, this is an American Possum, no where near as cute and furry as the ones you have and this one is better looking than most.

The antique market is half outside and half inside the old plumbers union building. Isn’t this a great mural left over from the WPA. It is on a curved wall in the stairway.

And this is one thing I found that I couldn’t live without especially because I got a great deal on it. I love old medical illustrations, this chart is from 1918 and pulls down like a map. I have hung it on the wall above the entrance to the kitchen.

    LOVELY treasures! I’m afraid I would turn into one of those people on that show “Hoarders!” with so many cool things, I’d pack my car to the gills! ha! Your poster reminds me of my thrift store find (actually Gus spotted it) I have in my studio -it’s a plastic/rubber vintage model of the human torso with removable parts. But sadly the heart was missing until Gus put a peach pit in it’s place!!
