Around and about the Brimfield Flea Market

Last Sunday Syd and I checked out the Brimfield Antiques Flea Market. I've never been to it and to be honest I didn't know what to expect...

...and I don't think I was ready for the sensory overload. Even for the last day of their Summer schedule and many of the vendors had rolled up days prior, it was still pretty well attended with a lot to look at.

Syd scored a phrenology bust (as seen above) and a bunny bank. She had got it because it was similar to one she had a kid. I found some piano music with ukulele accompaniment to a song from 1926 called WHAT A SMILE CAN DO. That was pretty much my big purchase for the day. A Del's Lemonade cart happened to be there so we shared a large cup of their famous frozen lemonade and One Love Cafe (located on 800 Main Street in the Woo) had a cart there too so we had jerked chicken and tofu respectively. It was the first time I had jerked chicken and we may have to visit their restaurant sometime soon. We also had some amazing handmade donuts. And I've never been a huge sweets type person. But these were great!!

I also happened to snap a shot of a vintage Narragansett Beer Bottle.


We also ran into several of our friends walking about that day too. 
 
All in all it was a fun day out without breaking the bank. And we're thinking about checking it out when it starts up again in September.

The Goon Show (Colour Version)

A color version of the Goon Show artwork I did recently. All colors added digitally. I decided to give Spike Milligan's character Count Moriarty a sickly green pallor. Simply because most of the shows describe him being in a perpetual death-like state.
