Photos: A Few Items from the Flea Market

Solid brass for my grandboy Oz (Oscar in real life).
Found one redhead; not for sale.
One of the true lures of flea marketing is finding the unexpected. That was the case this morning at Happy's in North Roanoke where I wound up with a brass belt buckle, some good veggies and an oddball fruit and a couple of photos that I like.

There was, of course, the speculative cowboy boots that my buddy Sonya would love, but I didn't want to fork over $150 on spec (or otherwise). Still, they really look like her style.

The solid brass belt buckle ($2) will go to my grandboy, Oz (short for Oscar) when he's a good bit older. He's not quite 3, so we have probably 18 or so years left to hang on to it. I like it, though.

The fruit, found at a Vietnamese food stand, is a dragon fruit and let me tell you that it is wonderful. I've had it in the past, but generally avoid buying it because it's $4 a pound. The one shown here is about the size of my fist and cost $2.75. It is dense and tasty, but only for special occasions in my house.

Here's some of what I found.

These have 'Sonya" written all over them.

She'd probably like these, too.
Somebody discarded these gems.
