Flea Markets can be overwhelming - too much to see; too many booths to visit. In fact, I am skipping the Long Beach Flea today (which is my FAVORITE). So, I needed a little fix yesterday.
Every 6-8 weeks, there is a Sidewalk Sale in our neighborhood. It's organized by some very artsy people and sometimes includes overflow from the studio of Clare Graham. It's on the sidewalk next to his studio, so that makes it easy.
It's hard to explain how yummy these book covers are. This is an address book/notepad from a lawyer's estate. It is falling apart, but I can easily see how I can rebind it into a cover for a journal. The embossing is so lovely.
And talk about lovely - how sweet are these two?
I feel so fortunate to have this little sale to look forward to every once in awhile. I could even take the bus there if necessary, it's so close. Great people; you see all your art friends there; right across the street from a neighborhood coffee shop. I am happy.
