My wife spent a few hours at one guy's tables. I walked all over the flea market and came back and she was still there. So, I went way down to the other end, bought a bottle of Mexican Coca-Cola and went and sat down at a friends table and chatted with him for awhile. It got to be time for me to want to go home so I went back to that first isle and, yep, she was still there. I told her I was going home and if she wanted a ride she better come too. She said OK, and she had her bag full. She got all kinds of fabric, brand new sheets, and a lots of other things. I am going to just show you some of them.
I am going to show you a bunch of pictures of this one item. Each picture will be from a different angle or distance.
OK now, how many of you know just what this piece of equipment is? How big is it, you may ask. Well, I can hold it in one hand. The crank handle gives you a clue of the size. I am not going to tell you what it is used for until tomorrow. I want to see what you all come up with. Join in and have some fun guessing.
She also got a neat belt buckle shaped like two hands. One goes on each end of a belt and the clasp together. Never saw a buckle like that. Then she got some camel bells. I guess all we need now is a camel. . .
Here is a close up of the tag that tell you all about them:
Guess what? I even got a couple of books. One was on diesel engines used on railroads, etc. It is a mess and I am trying to clean it up. May have to read it outside. It smells too bad to bring it in the house.
I also bought this other book:
At my age, I probably could write a book like this but I had to get something from one of my buddies who sets up every week. Maybe I should read it anyway, I may learn something. Who knows.
By the way, that first item I showed you? My wife looked it up on the Internet and they are selling for ten to twenty times more than she paid for hers. I guess she did good. Let's hope she gets a lot of use out of it. It is a simply beautiful day here. Hope you all have a great day, you hear?
UPDATE: OK, some of you commenters got it right. It was designed to cut strips of cloth that then could be made into things like rugs.
