The Flea Market @ the Alemany Farmer's Market
One of the tv shows I enjoy watching is ANTIQUES ROADSHOW on PBS. It is where ordinary people bring their antiques to be appraised by credible and recognized appraisers. They would find out whether what they have is a treasure or trash.
To be honest, I fantasize myself going to flea markets and picking a little knick knack to find out later on that this little impulse buy is worth a child's college education. Such is the way my delusion works, so just humour me.
Thus when we were in the city for a niece's birthday party, we didn't go straight home when the party ended early. We decided to check out what's at the Sunday flea market at the Alemany Farmer's Market. It's only recently that I found out that the same spot of the farmer's market on Saturday becomes a flea market on Sundays.
The market was not crowded. Probably the lateness of the hour, but I noted that some sellers were only starting their set-up. I don't know the operating hours for the flea market.
There's almost everything for everybody. I saw tables of old dental instruments.
Unlike on Saturday farmer's market, I only saw one food truck/stall selling snacks on that day.
This is either a mazagine rocker, or a baby's crib. It caught my fancy, but not enough to ask for the price. I noticed that the prices were on the high side.
And this is the piece de resistance in my opinion. It is elaborately carved, in good condition on simple ocular inspection, and just beautiful. The folded wood on the top unfolds into a cheese table, or some sort of a carving table.
OUR WORLD TUESDAY.
