Being the first sunday of the month it was the Alameda Flea Market. This time I was more prepared for the size so I wasn't in a state of shock and awe the entire time I was there. Also I was on a mission looking for items that would call my name and say take me home. In Feb. I am taking a class from Nina Bagley and am looking for items to take to her class. I know they will call to me and say "take me with you" when I see them. I have to open my self up to all possibilities, the Alameda Flea Market was the perfect venue for such a search. It was a lovely day to be out and about, sunny skies and no wind which is almost unheard of when you are near the San Francisco Bay. Not as many tiny things were calling to me today but I was not discouraged. I kept my eyes off the large items, especially the gorgeous vintage posters, oh how I lust after some of those! At the last stall as I was walking out the door my eye spied this little set of poetry books, they were not only saying "take me" they were screaming at me. Not only were they in my price range the lady bargained with me! People were kind and let me take photos of items I wanted but left behind. I am sharing these with you, besides some pictures of my lovely little books.
