AIRSTREAM VINTAGE FLEAS

Wow…we took to the road late last night (Saturday) to be at a Vintage Flea Market in California the following Sunday morning. About 300 miles one way for us. We pulled into the parking lot at about 4am.

Our shopping started before sunrise as vendors set up. While it may be the best time to score before stuff disappears. There is normally not much dickering that time of the morning. So expect to pay a premium. We shopped until 10am and found some real bargains as vendors started adjusting prices more.

With a car load of vintage goodies we then hit the road back to Las Vegas. I unfortunately lost a nights sleep in there. LOL

We found a vendor with this gem of a rig. Of course I am partial to this vendors set-up. It hits home with my camping spirit. A converted 1963 Airstream. Made into a mobile Boutique. The inside was gutted and converted into a rolling retail shop. Complete with a sales counter up by the door, and a changing room in the rear. You couldn’t get better vintage, at a Vintage/Antique Flea Market.

Even with a crazy 600 mile turn around round trip we had fun! Met new contacts, saw many new “Old” items, and snagged a few good deals. We were only limited by our wallets and imagination of what we could do with some of the items.

HORSE HEAD & HOOF ANDIRONS

As shown. They do have some dings and some parts missing. Originally a set of Fireplace Andirons. These would still be very fashionable if displayed on your fireplace hearth.

Or think re-puposing? Are you a horse person? Or decorate as such? Imagine them atop posts at the entrance to a gated sidewalk. How about a topper on a brass coat rack? Atop a “Hitching Post”?

Heavy cast iron and a substantial amount of brass. They stand about 17 inches tall. Each piece weighs just a little over 15lbs.

List Price $248.00 for the pair
Sold as a pair only
Local pickup only

WOOD PUTTY DRIED UP? Use common household ingredient to restore its use

Are you throwing away oil based wood putty you used one time, only to find it dried up when you go to use it again later? If you can dig it out with a screw driver and it has not totally solidified you most likely can resurrect it for use again.

Dig all of the product out of its container onto a clean work surface or a piece of wax paper. Use a pair of disposable gloves and start working in a few drops of common Canola Cooking oil. Work it for awhile before adding more oil. Use your thumb and edge of your index finger to break up any hard pieces.

Once you have the putty the consistency of play dough it is ready for use, or you can return it to its container for future use.

Simple, cheap, fast, and effective.
