In search of vintage treasure...

I ordered Claudine Hellmuth's books on collage from the library recently. Can't wait till they come in. Love her fun messy antique-y style. Decided I wanted to try it out so, to that end, I decided that there should be no better way to spend my lazy Sunday afternoon than to go and search for vintage treasures to play with.

Every Sunday there is a public market in Fremont. Also, they have an Antique Mall there in the same area.

I found some really cool stuff. There were things like vintage typewriter keys, old school flashcards, watch faces, wooden typeset blocks, and French postcards from the '20s... all sorts of pretty things
