I have a mental prop list for my still life photography.
I've turned to Etsy a few times only because we just don't have a lot of antique stores in our area for what's on that list...and lets face it,
half all the fun is in the hunt.
Because I never settle, I eventually find my prize.
As was the case this past weekend.
The 4th Sunday of every month, 50-100 venders gather at a local college parking lot to sell their wares at the Topanga Vintage Faire. I go about every other month hoping to check a few things of my list. This past Sunday I decided to go but I needed to get out there when they opened as it was going to be in the triple digits & that happens REALLY quick.
Getting there early paid off and I got to scratch antique coffee grinder from my list!
It's German made from about 1940. I always ask the dealer if they know the story behind the item they sell. This one didn't come with a story but that's ok because it's kinda fun creating one. Judging from the condition, it was well used.
It's nice having a barista son that can bring home fresh espresso beans.
I love the dovetail joints.
Do you have a mental prop list and/or collect anything?
Please share, I'd love to hear about it.
Happy (collection) snapping!
