The mornings haul. I’m feeling fortunate to have had yet another visit from the broken violin fairy. The Zither is pretty cool too.
This is a combined haul from the flea market, scrap yard, etc. I’m on a junk binge.
The first Sunday of every month is the Alameda Flea Market. It is vast, impossible to see one side from the other. It has taken me several visits there to learn to pace myself, and not grab everything in sight. The real challenge is hiking the mile back to the car with your loot. This time I showed restraint and only picked up one old wooden radio. The final image in this sequence shows an early concept of what I may do with it, though it is really too soon to tell.
I figured I’d start the new year with some new junk. The green thing is a periscope!
Birthday present from my Dad: A truckload of crap! Thanks Dad. Good stuff.
The days flea market finds. I’m particularly keen on the old hip-shaking machine. It’s a great shape and has a really robust mechanism inside.
This mornings goodies. I’m particularly excited about getting the fake painting to work: gurgling sounds, flowing, back-lit waterfall, etc. Also lolling forward to finally organizing my nuts and bolts, though I suspect I’ll always have a screw loose.
I got a beautiful old adding machine yesterday from the Sonoma County Museum sale.
The days haul in brief: gaudy furniture parts, push mower, vacuum cleaner, bull horns, neon sign transformer, various power supplies, copious amount of bubble wrap, etc.
