I Found a Naked Lady Photograph in a Flea Market Book. Wanna See?
Isn't she lovely? I'm still in the midst of home and merchandise purging sessions. I was flipping through books from the flea market when this vintage photograph, a re-creation of Eve in the garden with a nude model holding an apple, daintily flipped out of the book.
I remembered she likely came from the vendor who still hosts my sought-after "golden genitalia" vintage kitschy wall-hangings. When I heard a flea market seller had these in stock I hunted him down to find them, but he's never bought them back to the market again. I'm on a brief thrifting hiatus for the rest of October while I get caffeinated and attempt to list every single vintage item for sale in my apartment on my Etsy Shop. (Hundreds of photos, ho! I need more tea!)
This photo is a fun reminder of why I enjoy the hunt so much. It really is junk culture anthropology, a scavenger hunt. You never know what you're going to find! (Lady Eve here will be listed on Etsy soon, but send me an e-mail if you'd like to buy 'er.)
What's the weirdest thing you've ever encountered at the thrift store or flea market?
