A Trip to the 39th Street Flea Market

A frame purchased at the flea market made out of reclaimed wood from homes in South Africa holds art work by our friend Clover Vail.

Well, I got my broken camera back from Canon! They said they were going to charge $120 to fix it and I happened to mention in passing this blog and voila, it was repaired for free as a courtesy. Thanks Canon.
Since I got it back, I have been using the video function, and so we have something new for Bart Boehlert's Beautiful Things: a video! Let me know what you think. I got my MacBook upgraded, bought the iLife program which has iMovie on it, went to a class at the Apple store for iMovie, downloaded the video and edited it in iMovie, and uploaded it to YouTube. I mean, there is a steep learning curve!
We went on Saturday afternoon to the Hell's Kitchen Flea Market on 39th Street between 9th and 10th Avenues, and recorded the visit. Watch to see what we found:

TD and I are off tomorrow for the sand and surf of sunny Sarasota and Siesta Key, rated one of America's best beaches. Have a great weekend.

All right, Clover Vail has a new fan. Shall start counting my pennies.

I once wrote CV's mother, Kay Boyle, a mash note of deep admiration and received a lovely signed photograph in return, plus a letter. KB was long one of my heroes, and an extraordinary beauty.

Adore the flea market, although you seem to have better luck than I ever do! I clearly need to start getting up earlier.
