flea market finds


a little dust off 
some 
clever 
electricianing™ 
(I just made that word up: copyright!) 
you've got 
a lamp for the den 
or 
maybe 
the bedroom 

I'll let you think about it


covet 
this box 
its fabulous 
alas
no where to keep it 
its not tall 
enough 
for an end table 
too tall 
for a foot stool  
Chipso, 
I never heard of this,
 which 
in itself 
is amazing 
once 
for a long time 
worked 
on Mad Ave 
and 
I am old

amen! a real find!
lamp for the bathroom. In large families with one bathroom timing is important. Love your creative journalisms

Bibi said...

Fully agree with Judi; wonderful finds and I always enjoy your writing.

Chipso facto...you are NOT "old"! Am considering the irony of placing a traffic light in the bathroom...

Robin said...

Great finds, love the traffic light, and the bathroom irony angle is making me giggle in a very 10 year old boy sort of way ;).

Love the traffic light in the bedroom notion, a bit like Robin above giggle! giggle! Did you take them home, that's the question, what a talking point they would be!! Such fun rummaging around old markets, went to one today too!!

You sure do come across some great finds Daryl! Of course, you have so many great places there to scour! Love the "electricianing"!

I love the bathroom traffic light idea! priceless

you're not old, don't start

Snappy Di said...

That really is a great looking box though. Too bad you don't have a use for it. Hopefully it found a home elsewhere.

Diane said...

All super finds. Love flea finds. And I don't think you are OLD! Maybe older, but not old =)

Virginia said...

I love the old crates. A few months ago the CA State Railroad Museum in Sacramento had an exhibit. All the old crates and labels were so fun to look at.

Mental P Mama said...

LOL...you should open up a store so you can collect all that cool stuff! PS--I may never leave Virginia.

You're only as old as you let yourself be. I'm about 14.

Jeez Loueez how many entries have I missed??

That is a great crate, for sure. I admire your restraint in not dragging it home. I have no self control at all when it comes to cool stuff. Hence the Early Hoarder decor in my house.
