A flea market is filled with unique objects invoking curiosity, nostalgia, humor and surprise. A blue and white Pyrex bowl
recalls helping Grandma mix stuffing for holidays past. A cut-crystal candy dish reminds us just how much we love that old-world pink color. A darkly framed formula-landscape evokes dreams of scary monsters. A planet-shaped radio, reflecting design aspects of the early Star Wars days, reminds us of the exact one we had as a kid, except in yellow.
These objects and curiosities are a ripe cache for inspiration - as is the community at the Cleveland Street Flea Market, where some of the vendors have been in business there since the market opened sixteen years ago.
I embellished a common plain table based memories of Florida. I purchased a souvenir plate of Florida; got out my saw and went from there.
