French Flea Finds














I never feel like photos can do much justice to the amazing bits and pieces you find at a flea market (or brocante, or old hat factory, on and on...) but I've gotten into the habit of shooting each little thing that comes thru my hands, otherwise, I use them in a piece of art work and I may forget I ever had that little magic.  The stuff is best seen, felt and even smelled in person.  The old, musty story that wafts from each box, each set of playing cards, and that whole 3 meters of embroidered edging, that's the one I'm after.
