Flea Market Finds!

Arriving at the Pasadena City College Flea Market - January 2013

I've been very busy with a new project lately. So busy, in fact, that I completely forgot about some photos I snapped while visiting the Pasadena City College Flea Market last month. Fortunately, photos of the always amusing and oddball things one can find at any given flea market are timeless, so I could post them years later and they'd still be just as relevant as they are now.

The Real Ghostbusters Slimer cartoon art cel!

Wind-up Knitting Cat!

You know, if I've said it once, I've said it a thousand times... it's really hard to find a good Wind-up Knitting Cat. Fortunately, this flea market has us covered.
