Long Beach loot from Sunday, I liked this flea, manageable scale-straight parallel aisles easy to navigate and and a little stranger and less curated/precious than the Rose Bowl-adding it to the rotation.

Seated stone figure,Costa Rican, possibly pre Columbian?-not sure, but it's spent time in the ground and has been re-decorated with enamel paint at some stage. Vintage sweatshirt with strange home stitched tornado & storm cloud diagrams-go figure. Another nice Serape, 1930's-40's with perfect silk fringe. 2 shopcoats/aprons made from repurposed canvas flour sacks, 1940's, thrifty tailoring.

In house relatives here, here and here.

Okemah-damn i did see that watermelon twin fin-and photographed it also-they both looked interesting but were $175 a piece-the twin fin seemed to have no rocker like a primitive boogie board with the fins really close to the rails if I remember right....the boards of flea maybe a future post.
