Some great old photos (carte vistas) from the flea market. Two families, a baby and the pretty lady. She can be fixed with Photoshop.
The "Carmenella" sheet music I bought for the cover illustration. It was done by Rolf Armstrong -- the father of America's pin-up art. I have seen a lot of his creations on sheet music from the 1920's. She is beautiful, isn't she? Going to frame her.
The square tin is for some altered art. I figured I could use the lid and the base and make two pieces of art from them. The children's book on top is falling apart so I don't feel bad using the pages in art work. I'd better get busy, right??
Then there is the lovely black velvet purse. It is in fabulous condition. The two beaded coin purses are also vintage and in great shape. The pearl collar is not old, but fits in with the "look" in the booths at Merchant Square.
Most of the items will find their way to Merchant Square in the near future. Got a big sale coming up at the end of the month and have to get the booths stocked!
