When we made our trip to Atlanta last month I managed to hit a couple of stores for myself.
In between all of the craziness of getting son #2 a bed that is.
One place was The Classy Flea. It a great little antique mall just past the big chicken.
The big chicken is a landmark in Marietta.
Everything is either near the big chicken…
north of the big chicken…
south of the big chicken…
When you see it you’ll know why.
Anyway, it was a rushed trip but I managed to find some of these neat old photo processing frames.
The other one was slightly different as it had pieces that pulled out on the side.
This one has these metal latch things on the back.
You turn them and you can open just part of the back.
I’m guessing so that you can check on the development without exposing the whole print.
Actually son #1 suggested it and it sounded right to me.
I wish I had taken a picture of the other one before I gave it to my son.
It had a loose piece and he said he would fix it.
He better have. I will hound him about that.
Where was I?
Oh yes, it really need a cleaning.
I use this this stuff called Kramer’s Best.
It’s good stuff.
It cleans really well and then brings the wood back to life.
I love the way they are put together.
See how dry it was?
It would really amaze you on a larger piece of furniture.
No stripping or anything. It just enhances the wood.
I had a hard time with the glare.
It looks a little darker in the photos then it really is.
I think it makes a wonderful frame of my father in his Italian Air Force uniform.
I’ll be on the lookout for more of these.
