My New Favorite Type of Art

Today I went to the Georgetown Flea Market, which has been relocated to right by the Courthouse Metro. As I am not the best at spotting a good deal on antiques, I spent most of my time at a stand that sells matted covers of old New Yorker magazines. I was tempted to by many more than I did, all in the name of adorning my walls with cool artwork.
The matte-job is excellent, and it was fun to look at the collection of covers, which go all the way back to the 1940s. I am just sad that I didn't come up with this business idea first! What a fun way to make money!

Ah, the Georgetown flea least someone likes it. It used to be in the backyard of my building...I'm glad you found something you liked, but I always found it sketchy as all get out.

I don't think flea markets in neighborhoods like Clarendon and Georgetown can be sketchy. The only time I really went to a flea market that approximated sketchy was in Paris, when I almost got my iPod nabbed from my hands. Granted, I was an idiot for carrying it around for everyone to see, but that's not the type of thing that happens at Georgetown Market.

i love the posters! that's a really nice way to have some unique artwork that's not cliche. it reminds me of that time we went to the thrift stores in Chicago and got those old magazine ads...i still have mine, but they're in ny. that was fun.
