In my travels, I have found items that were related as well. When I traveled the Oregon coast, I purchased a berry colored tea set with 4 place settings in a style I had never seen before. Many years later, while shopping in Nyack, NY, I found additional pieces to complete the set.
Across the country, there are totally different pickings! Cost differences depend on how deep in the city or out in the countryside. Even the array of tools are a varied lot, in different regions. I'm particularly keen on local hardware - I'm a fool for tools!
This summer's trip to the North East was a blast. It was a small town extravaganza of good. All the junk shops along the way were humble and filled with their local style. It was awesome. I stuffed my bags full of Vermont's finest "treasures" from the Waterbury Flea Market. This particular flea market is touted as "Vermont's finest". It was different than a Texas flea market experience. Most flea markets in Texas have become pricey through the huge number of people who have created more of a commercial store that travels from one flea market to the next. Vermont was particularly well priced by folks who just want to sell their stuff. They too sell online, but are not as fancy or well organized as the market sub-culture that has taken Texas by storm.
This all sounds a bit like "This Land is Your Land" .... but, I will tell you, junking was made for you and me!
