what better to do on a gray day but to meet a friend 

 at the long beach swap meet?

you might find a judy garland album

or a new dress


hardware.... when i built my house i scoured

swap meets every sunday

for glass door knobs and brass hardware

like these.  each door  in my house is unique and has its

own story.

old photos for collage pieces

although, sometimes these old photos make me

sad thinking of disconnected families that

do not have their precious photos.

early california pottery.  i have several 

collections of these colorful dishes, bowls

and mugs.

or even an old ready to be used

for an altered book.


  1. Fabulous! Really great shots!I wanna go sometime? ♥

  2. I love the photos and am reminded of the many times I've fallen for a random item because a collection of them was so appealing. Get it home and just one does not have the same impact!

  3. I am just so jealous that you got to go to this flea market! :-)

  4. this looks like my ideal day out!!!! :)

  5. Wow this is a great swap meet. I would love those dolls heads. LOL So many awesome "arty" things there. Have a nice weekend.
