NEW BEDFORD ANTIQUES at WAMSUTTA PLACE:
Is this a supposed to be a clown or perhaps a guy who tried out for KISS but couldn't get his make up right?
(I love the way his shoulders seem a little high up, as if he is taking a painted portrait "selfie".)
Truely incredible bad clown art that would have come home with me if the way his lips are puckered didn't kind of creep me out...
There was a booth of incredible vintage bicycles, this on was my favorite as is reminded me of my friend Young Adult Writer, Stacey Toon.
3 foot tall metal rooster.
He was very statuesque but I felt he could have probably used a more bold and colorful paint job if he were to attract a mate:
After spotting the rooster, I noticed an elephant of similar size and girth and moments later rounded the corner to a whole metal forest menagerie. (Unfortunately, the group picture came out all blurry but I think these 2 recycled metal creatures sum up the craftsman ship involved)
"Thaaaaaa Siiimmppssssonnnnnsssss... do-dit-do-do-do, da-doo-dit-da-doooo"
For 3K this authentic theater prop could be your family!
There were sooooo many incredible things to see at this place and I only explored about 1/3 of it before leaving with my arms (and the arms of the very nice man who helped me to my car) FULL of great finds.
A lot of places we pick are either HIGH end or LOW end but this place had a wide range of prices and a million dreamy one of kind things to see!
I can't wait to go back with Lacy Berman and any other friends who want to go, preferably friends with a van... : )
